Migration Programme Statistics

The purpose of migration is the build the economy, shape society, increase the labour market and/or reunite families.

The Australian Government’s target of attracting 190 000 new migrants in the latest financial year has been achieved, Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, the Hon Scott Morrison said today.

Australian industry benefited with the majority of the permanent migration visas (128 550 places) granted within the skill stream. Minister Morrison said this equates to nearly 68% of the programme.

‘The skill stream is targeted towards helping fill identified skill shortages in the Australian economy,’ Minister Morrison said. ‘In 2013-14, occupational professionals accounted for more than 63% of visas granted in the skill stream, followed by technicians and trades workers with 22% and managers with 9% of skilled stream visa grants. These results are a major boost to the Australian economy.’

More than 60% of skilled migration visas were delivered within the employer sponsored (47 450 places), business innovation and investment (6160 places) and state and territory government nominated (24 656 places) categories.

The family stream, which prioritised the reunion of partners and children this programme year, had a final outcome of 61 112 places, representing about 32% of the migration programme. The partner category delivered 47 752 places (or 78%) of the family stream, and the child category delivered 3850 places. The remaining family stream places were granted within the other family (585 places), contributory parent (6675 places) and parent (2250 places) categories.

‘Delivery of a well-managed migration scheme demonstrates our capacity to carefully structure our programmes to deliver the size and composition required to meet the needs of the Australian economy,’ Minister Morrison said.
