Who wants to migrate to Australia?

Anna Boucher, Associate Professor in Public Policy and Political Science at the University of Sydney recently wrote about a study she conducted with the Elisa Choy founder of Maven data a market research company to gauge Australian public sentiment on migration.

A link at the end of this article will direct you to the full and lengthy article which was published in The Conversation but for now here are some salient points worth considering.

The review was conducted using online sources using social media, online comments, blogs and other discussion venues.

Overall, they found Australians have a neutral view towards migration, they are neither opposed to it or in favour of it however, they are very engaged on the topic.

On the other side of the coin, of those investigating migration options those from India had a high degree of interest in Australia. And it seems that the Chinese had a low online engagement but it’s difficult to tell as there is such a tight control of media in that country. Other countries were largely neutral about Australia as a major migration destination.

Those Indians who were interested had concerns about visa including the Global Talent Visa, and they looked for information from media outlets like the ABC and newspapers. Assent Migration Lawyers can help with advice and preparation of Global Talent Visas, as well as other visa options for families and skilled migration.

In 2019 the OECD had ranked Australia as a top immigration destination for high talent migrants who were highly educated but apparently, we may now be facing stiff competition from countries such as Canada.
