How visa holders in Australia will be affected by the 2019 budget?

Focus points from the 2019 budget:

The Coalition previously announced it will reduce Australia’s annual migration intake from 190,000 to 160,000 places for four years from 2019-20.

From November 2019, two new regional visas will be introduced that require skilled migrants to stay and work in regional Australia for a period of five years.
Those that take up the new visas will then be eligible for permanent residency.

The government is going ahead with a 5.4 per cent increase to the visa application fee for almost all visa sub-classes from July. The measure is estimated to generate an extra $275 million over four years.
