How much do you need to live comfortable in retirement in Australia?
31/3/2017
Based on the research done by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, a male born in 2010 to 2012 can expect to live to the age of about 80 years, and a female to about 84 years. Compare this to about 55 and 59 years respectively for 1901 to 1910, and you can see how far we’ve come in a century! Many of us will live even longer than these average ages. So if you retire at age 65, your ...

What will happen with Australia’s populations without overseas migration at all?
29/3/2017
With zero net overseas migration, that is, the same number of people leaving the country as arriving in it, Australia's total population would depend solely on natural increase. Under this scenario, the total population would be 25 million in 2033, 6 million less than the 2013 medium series projection for the same year. The proportion of people aged over 65 would increase to 23%, and the proportion of those under 15 would decrease to 16%. Zero net overseas ...

Who are your newest neighbours?
26/3/2017
Since the migration of British colonial settlers in the 18th century, Australia’s population has grown rapidly to 24 million. Approximately 200, 000 migrants receive permanent visas each year, though almost half of these are already in Australia on temporary visas. That leaves 120, 000 migrants who arrived in this country in 2016: Australia’s newest settlers. Where are these new neighbours from? They are from 219 different countries, according to the Department of Social Services Settlement Database, ...

Every job hunting project requires a lot of research work, which some people find hard to accomplish.

Do immigrants improve the health of native workers?
17/3/2017
Public debate on immigration focuses on its effects on wages and employment, yet the discussion typically fails to consider the effects of immigration on working conditions that affect workers’ health. There is growing evidence that immigrants are more likely than natives to work in risky jobs, as they are more inclined to take on physically intensive tasks. Recent studies show that as immigration rises, native workers are pushed into less demanding jobs. Such market adjustments have positive impacts on the ...

Parent visas cost time and money
15/3/2017
Most parent visa applicants face a long wait. It can take anywhere up to 50 years to be approved for a parent visa in Australia. There are two main parent visa categories: non-contributory and contributory. Non-contributory visas include the permanent subclasses 103 and 804 visas. These types of visas are the most affordable option but come with the downside of an extremely long wait. Contributory visas fall into subclasses 143, 173, 864, and 884. Subclasses 143 and 864 ...

Holding an Australian passport doesn`t necessarily mean you are an Australian citizen
13/3/2017
I am in the middle of a partner migration case, where it is important that the child of the relationship is deemed an Australian citizen. This is despite the fact that the Australian child has already been issued with an Australian passport, and already holds an Australian Citizenship by Descent certificate. The child's father is an Australian citizen and is also the holder of an Australian passport. The biological mother (visa applicant for partner migration) is Korean. ...

Monash University academic denied permanent residency because of his son`s disability
10/8/2016
Biswajit Banik and his wife Sarmin Sayeed knew it wasn't easy raising a child with autism, but were happy doing it in Australia after moving from Bangladesh in 2007. But the Monash University lecturer and his GP wife were devastated when they learned late last year that their dreams of living permanently in Australia would be shattered because of the disability suffered by their son, 12-year-old Arkojeet. Immigration officials have told Dr Banik his application for ...

How Reviews Can Extend Stay in Australia
1/8/2016
There are times when you read a migration case and you just shake your head in amazement! Because, sometimes, a case is so bad, so hopeless, that you wonder what the case was ever doing in the Tribunal, let alone the Federal courts.  Even worse, when the words that spell doom for the visa holder’s case come straight out of his own mouth.   A case that had this quality of appearing to be totally “dead on ...
