The government is looking to fast track 5000 visas for some of the best high skilled migrants the world has to offer.

The Home Affairs department has already sent officials to Berlin and will send more to Boston, Singapore, Shanghai and Dubai to spruik the offer to high-end businesspeople.

The new additions will enter Australia as part of the annual skilled migration cap of 70,000 which is part of the overall immigration intake of 160,000.

Immigration Minister David Coleman tells Ross Greenwood the move will benefit the economy.

“Those very high-end migrants are often the people who will start companies, or employ other Australians, or have unique skills, that allow Australian businesses to grow.”
