Significant increase of New Zealanders to Australia in last year

A study compiled regarding the immigration of residents from Australia over the last twelve months has recently been published with the results somewhat shocking. There’s been a significant rise in Australian residents who have migrated to New Zealand over the past year, the rise is a staggering 40%! Data reveals that over 648,000 New Zealand natives now reside permanently in Australia, this is up from 470,000 before the year 2007 when the world saw the devastating financial recession. It has been proven that New Zealand has lost a staggering 12% of it’s citizens to sister country Australia, so what is enticing these persons in such a high volume?

One reason as to why immigration into Australia from New Zealand is so high could be to do with the 444 Visa which is an open migration programme in which all residents of New Zealand can enter Australia and obtain this visa as their given right upon arrival providing that they have a clear criminal background. This makes the immigration process extremely effortless for those of New Zealand with no waiting times, delays or extortionate fees expecting in all other migration destinations around the world.

Australia is a bigger country, it has much more industry, a higher tourism revenue and it is much higher up the global business ladder meaning there are more chances here to better ones quality of life with the abundance of working opportunities available that are not so apparent in New Zealand or so readily available to obtain.

As with all immigration statistics in todays society the world media are quick to spread prejudices through scaremongering tactics such as propaganda. Headlines across Australia read things such as ‘’Kiwis here to demand the dole’’ but this is simply untrue. Those from New Zealand are not actually entitled to social welfare payments until they have been residing in the country for a decade or more, they cannot simply arrive and claim benefits much as the press would like you to believe. The benefits which they can receive are Family Tax Benefits and Disability Support Pension, however this is no reason for them to migrate to Australia as they receive the exact same payments of these benefits in their own country.

Statistically those from New Zealand who do choose Australia as their home actually have things quite hard, a national survey revealed that they on a whole live in much smaller homes that contain more people and have very cramped conditions, these people work hard across the board to support themselves and their families.

On the flip side over 64,000 Australian residents currently live in New Zealand, yet without the countless published prejudices that their hosts face when choosing Australia as home.
