Abstract:

Permanent immigration to Australia increased again in 2008 by almost a third compared to the previous year. The migrant inflow consisted of 502 800 long‐stay or permanent migrants, whereas 224 600 persons emigrated, yielding record net migration of 278 200. The main reason for this record high in net migration intake was a large number of incoming temporary migrants, whose number is uncapped, while new arrivals of permanent migrants represented only one in five of all arrivals. A large number (over a third) of permanent migration visas in 2008‐2009 were issued to temporary migrants already in Australia, in particular to international students and skilled temporary migrants.
