Portugal’s Govt. has created a six-month work visa to attract workers, Do you think new Australian Government will do something like this?

The Portuguese government has given the go-ahead for foreigners who want to work in the country for six months to get a work visa.

The government has also said that it will get rid of the quota system for immigration, which the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs says has been out of date for a long time.

“This [measure] allows foreigners who are looking for work to enter Portuguese territory for a period of 120 days, which can be extended by another 60 days for a total of 180 days,” the Minister said. He also said that the measure was announced to encourage safe and regular migration.

The Council of Ministers has now approved the proposed law that changes the rules for how migrants can enter, stay, leave, and be sent away from the country. This law includes these measures.

A study by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) found that Portugal has a serious labour shortage. By the end of 2022, 85,000 jobs in travel and tourism will still be open across the country.

Also, the country is expected to create about 193,000 jobs in the next ten years to help the economy, which was hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic, get back on its feet. This is because the country’s GDP depends heavily on tourism.

A recent press release from the WTTC Economic Impact Report (EIR) also predicts that the sector’s total contribution to Portugal’s GDP could reach a high of almost €39.5 billion next year, which is 17.4% of the whole economy.

Also, the number of jobs in this sector could be higher than in 2019, adding more than 3,200 jobs to reach a peak of over 1 million by the end of 2023.

EIR also shows that the industry’s GDP in this country is expected to grow by an average of 3.4% per year over the next ten years. This is three times faster than the rate of growth of the country’s economy as a whole, which is 1.1% per year. Because of this, by 2032, the sector’s GDP is expected to be more than €50 billion, or 20.2% of the whole economy.

Also, Portugal’s Golden Visa programme has been a huge success, with a 94% increase in applications just in May. In May, 112 golden visas were given out, and 93 percent of them were for buying real estate.
