Permanent migration under Australia’s Migration and Humanitarian Programmes rose by 7.7% in 2012‑13 with 214 000 visas issued. There were 190 000 places under the Migration Programme, 20 000 under the Humanitarian Programme and an additional 4 000 places, as recommended by the Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers, under the Family Stream. The Skill Stream accounted for about two‑thirds of the Migration Programme visas issued, with the remainder issued through the Family Stream except for a small number (0.4%) granted under the Special Eligibility category.
