Ukrainian citizens who have applied for Australian visas have been pushed to the "top of the pile" following the recent Russian invasion.
Scott Morrison said about 430 applications already made for visas by Ukrainians will be prioritised, as global condemnation of Russia's aggression grows.
Mr Morrison said Ukrainians looking to come to Australia in the wake of the military invasion could do so on a number of different visas.
"It's not just humanitarian visas, and we have ample room to accommodate those, but Ukrainian citizens are also seeking to make applications for skilled visas and student visas," he told reporters in Adelaide.
"We need those skills, and if, sadly, Ukrainian citizens have to leave their country, they can find a great home here in Australia as others have before."
It comes as Immigration Minister Alex Hawke met with Ukrainian community leaders as part of a roundtable discussion on Thursday.
Mr Hawke said he was considering further options for support for Ukraine through humanitarian, skilled, student and other visa programs.
"The Australian government remains committed to working in partnership with the Ukrainian-Australian community during this evolving situation," Mr Hawke said in a statement.
"I intend to conduct additional community consultation in the days and weeks ahead."
The prime minister said while Ukrainian visa applications would be prioritised, such applications could still be refused on security grounds.
Mr Morrison previously announced Ukrainian citizens who have been living in Australia would have their visa extended by six months, following the situation in eastern Europe.
Prioritising visas was also brought up during conversations between Mr Morrison and Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
"We can fast track (Ukrainian visas) as quickly as we can to enable those Ukrainian citizens to come to Australia," he said.
