Hide / Show Abstract

Australia’s migration and humanitarian programs combined comprised 199 000 individual entries in 2011-12, an increase of 8.9% with respect with the 2010-11 figure. The migration programme was used by around 185 000 individuals, the majority of whom were granted visas under the skill stream (126 000, half of whom were already in Australia) and most of the rest (59 000) under the family stream (28% already onshore). The top two source countries for permanent migrants through the migration programme were India (29 000) and China (25 500), and seven of the top 10 source countries in 2011-12 are located in Asia. The United Kingdom (25 000) fell to third place as an origin country of permanent migrants to Australia.
