While there has been considerable research that focuses on the impact of immigration on destination countries, there is little research specifically that focused on Australia. Certain categories of asylum seekers who enter Australia are disallowed the right to work during the application process (primarily those on Bridging Visa E), before they are either ultimately granted asylum or forced to leave the country. Many of these asylum seekers possess considerable skills and experience. The current skills shortage in Australia begs the question of whether there are valuable skills being wasted. This paper will examine the potential economic impact of granting all asylum seekers the right to work in a prosperous economy such as Australia.
