Australia is considered to be one of the world’s most popular ‘immigration nations’ (together with New Zealand, Canada, and the USA). Since 1945, when the first federal immigration portfolio was created, over 7.5 million people have settled in Australia.
Every year, the Australian government allocates places, or quotas, for people wanting to migrate permanently to Australia under Skilled Migration programs or Family/Humanitarian stream.
It must be noted that over the years, migration program planning numbers have fluctuated according to the priorities and economic and political considerations of the government. Currently, the total permanent migration programme outcome for 2016-17 was 183,608 places within the planning level of 190,000 with skilled migrants comprising the majority.
Until recently, the United Kingdom had always been the primary source country for migration to Australia. However, this time the major source country in the migration programme was India (21.2 percent) followed by China (15.4 percent) and the United Kingdom (9.3 percent).
The breakdown was as follows:
3400 child places were allocated outside the managed migration program
Thus, this was the statistics of 2016-2017, as the year passes by more and more number of applicants will receive Australian Permanent residency. However, the chances to migrate Australia under permanent residency is till 2022.
As per the recent reports, it may be possible that Australia closes its route for permanent residency under skilled migration visas. So, what are you waiting for? If you are eligible, you may start preparing for the Australia PR visa before it is too late!
This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
