Skill designed to improve the productive capacity of the economy and fill skill shortages in the labour market, including those in regional Australia. In 2020-21, the Skill stream has 79,600 places allocated.​

Family is predominately made up of Partner visas, enabling Australians to reunite with family members from overseas, and provide them with pathways to citizenship (77,300 places in 2020-21).

Special Eligibility this covers visas for those in special circumstances. This can include permanent residents returning to Australia after a period away, and is the smallest stream (100 places in 2020-21).

At least 3,000 Child places will be available in 2020-21.
Family Stream can not "legally" be capped (They are "demand" driven) but till I last looked - planning levels were NEVER exceeded bar a hand full over a long history.

But waiting times have grown massively.

But they are not CAPPED! lol
