Skilled Independent visa category set for rapid growth

Dutton’s Quadrella worst Health, Immigration, Defence Ministers now vying to be the worst Opposition Leader

Places in the Skilled Independent category have been steadily reduced since 2013-14 when 44,984 Skilled Independent visas were granted to a planned low of 6,500 Skilled Independent visas in 2021-22.

The reduction started when Opposition Leader Peter Dutton unilaterally cut the overall size of the program in 2017-18 (without Cabinet authority).
