In a further tightening of Australia's immigration policy, the government is releasing a new list of occupations required for migrants seeking to come to the country without the support of business. The list has been produced by the statutory research body, Skills Australia. It puts an end to people coming to Australia for short courses in subjects like cooking or hairdressing and then gaining permanent residency based on that training. The move follows the recent freezing of Australia's overall migrant intake.
