Hide / Show Abstract

Permanent migration fell by 1.2% in the 2014/15 programme year to 205 400. This comprised 189 100 places under Australia’s Migration Programme, 13 800 under the Humanitarian Programme, and an additional 2 500 places provided to New Zealand citizens. Two-thirds of the Migration Programme involved visas granted through the Skill stream (127 800 visas, 53.4% of which were granted to accompanying family migrants) and almost one-third through the Family stream (61 100). The remaining 240 visas (0.1 %) were delivered under the Special Eligibility visa category.
