An Australian visa processing crisis has left approximately a million potential workers in limbo.

Corporate Australia has struggled to fill positions and keep its businesses afloat due to strict
border controls and a mass exodus of foreign workers and students over the past two years.
Immigration data, a simple solution to the problem to allow more migrants
to enter has been stalled by a backlog of more than 914,000 temporary
and permanent visa applications as of August 12, according to Reuters.
