Australia - stepping stone for migrants

Australia Beach

Migrants in Australia are leaving the country at record rates. It would seem Australian grounds are being used merely as a stepping stone for migrants on route to reaching a more desirable destination to begin their life. The amount of former migrants who left Australia has doubled to 48,000 in slightly over a decade, the number of migrants who left in 2013 made up over half of the total number of Australians who moved overseas. At first it was thought that the migrants were missing their homeland, however it then emerged that the reasons behind the departure was down to country hopping migrants who were simply looking for the most effective way to reach their desired destination.

In figures which have recently been issued by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection it can clearly been seen that 40% of the migrants who left Australia didn't go back to the country which they originally left. New Zealand was the most popular destination for immigrants thought to be country hopping, closely followed by U.S.A, Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

Migrants who are travelling from South Africa and Afghanistan are amongst the ones who are highly expected to move on, on average 80% of them move to a country overseas after they have settled in Australia.

President of the Indian Australian Association of NSW, Dr Yadu Singh, stated that Hong Kong, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates are extremely popular locations for India's former immigrants. He believes this to be the case as those countries are much more familiarised to having migrants in their workforce. A lot of companies in foreign countries will head hunt individuals who have previously worked in Australia.

Although New Zealand is a popular destination, it is not a sought after location for Indian immigrants. Jennifer west, Westpac's head of migrant banking, is trying to establish a way of encouraging immigrants to continue their journey inside Australia, this is due to cultural and financial support they bring with them which is then reflected in Australia's growing economy.

The release of Westpac's research on New Australians, coincides with “Australian Day” it shows that migrants are responsible for contributing $200 Billion into Australia's economy each year and nearly a quarter of them have jobs where earnings are around $70,000. Australia welcomes immigrants and Australia Day is a wonderful chance to celebrate the roles they all play in the Australian society.
