India, China and UK are three nations from where majority of people had got Australia PR. Australia PR migration has tilted in favor of skilled immigrants from family class migrants since 19976 onwards. The reason behind this is that Australian Authorities are making efforts to match the migration with the requirements of the Australian labor market. In the meantime, temporary migration to the country has also enhanced drastically in the past 2 decades.

There are basically two routes to enter Australia– Student Visa and 457 Visas as quoted by the Guardian. The percentage of international students reaching in Australia has boosted thrice from1996 when it was 113,000 to reach 340,000 in 2017, as quoted by the Guardian.

It is beyond all doubts that Australia is a country of migration said the professor At Sydney University of Technology Jock Collins.
