Australia's 2020-21 fiscal year quota announces increase in business investment immigration quota | Australia Immigration | JiaYu

Australia's 2020-2021 new fiscal budget and what it means for investment immigration

Last month, the Australian Government announced an immigration quota for the 2020-21 financial year, maintaining the 160,000 quota for the previous financial year, but the distribution was different, with a decline in skilled immigrants compared with last year and an increase in business investment and top talent migration. Next, let's go down the detailed numbers! As can be seen from the figure above, the quota for the allocation of migrants in the technical and commercial categories has been reduced by 27%.

*There is no upper limit for the expected figure

As can be seen from the chart above, the quota for the allocation of technical and commercial migrants has been reduced by 27%, while the number of skilled migrants - including 189, 190, and visas in remote areas - has been reduced, indicating that it will be more difficult and more demanding to apply for skilled migration to Australia, while the quota for the Global Talent Independent Migration Scheme (GTI) announced just last year has tripled, demonstrating the Australian Government's desire to attract more top talent overseas.

Although it is difficult for skilled immigrants to apply successfully, some occupations will be given priority by the Australian Government. More details can be found in our previous articles:

Apart from skilled immigrants, the number of business-class immigrant visas, which are also highly expected by Hong Kong people, has increased to 13,500 from 6,862 last year, an increase of about double. The Australian government's move may be an effort to attract more overseas funding to save the affected economy.

The quotas for spouses, family migrants and so on have small bands, and the total number of quotas is still higher than last year.

Will immigration plans and policies be affected if the covid outbreak in Australia hits again?

The Australian Government has stated that immigration has always played a key role in Australia's economic development and the maintenance of social stability, and the Government has been paying close attention to visa adjustments. As the travel ban affects people from all over the world to come to Australia for visas, the Australian Government is actively formulating more flexible measures to deal with the situation, and immigration policy adjustments need to consider efforts to protect the employment of local Australian residents, support business development and promote economic recovery.

It is worth noting that the Australian Government has indicated that the relevant quotas are only reference figures and that the actual figures and circumstances will still be adjusted. Economic conditions, the impact of the epidemic, unemployment rate and other factors may be the factors affecting the allocation of quotas in the future, and we will continue to keep an eye on the latest news released by Australia.

投資英國物業八大陷阱詳細版 教你如何避免誤墮騙局

唔少香港人隨住BNO移民熱潮投資英國物業,但係未必個個都懂得當中竅門。為免受騙,不如一齊了解下英國物業投資最常見嘅八個陷阱,了解騙子嘅手段,咪唔會咁容易誤墮陷阱,快快買到心水物業囉! 一手樓(樓花) 陷阱1️⃣ 誤買爛尾樓 隨住唔少港人用BNO移民英國,當地亦推出好多針對港人而設嘅一手apartment物業,但部分物業並未落成,可能需要承擔爛尾風險。最好就搵大型發展商,簽訂買賣合約前記得睇清楚條款限制! 陷阱2️⃣ 未必達至保證租金回報 部分一手樓銷售時會以保證租金回報招徠買家,甚至可以達至6-7厘回報。事實上,唔少發展商口中嘅包租都係搵承包商,或者發展商喺頭幾年自行補貼租金,之後係咪繼續收呢個租金就一定要睇清楚條款。 陷阱3️⃣ 一手樓溢價 一般而言一手樓比二手市場嘅物業會有兩成溢價左右,發展商新起好嘅樓對比二手樓,都會相對昂貴。買家都要預返幾年時間,放出二手市場先可以打個和走或者賺錢,咁中間嘅租金回報可以有幾多就好重要喇。 二手樓 陷阱1️⃣ 物業狀況貨不對辦 現時COVID-19疫情持續,部分時間買家買樓時只能揀線上睇盤或者由Sourcing Agent代勞,好有可能買咗與實際尺寸不符嘅物業,遇上唔可靠嘅業主/Agent,甚至會刻意隱瞞冇整修好嘅瑕疵,就有可能產生額外裝修開支,或者係未能達到理想租金。 陷阱2️⃣ Leasehold物業或產生昂貴地租 英國物業有分freehold (永久業權) 及leasehold (租賃業權) 物業,只有freehold物業先可以買埋塊地,leasehold只能購買到業權,更需要長期繳交地租,地租更是每年遞增,租金升幅未必可以補償得到。因此購買物業時,睇清楚物業業權非常重要。 陷阱3️⃣ 假冒業主虛假放盤
