Strong growth in Australian citizenship


The number of migrants becoming Australian citizens continues to rise, with an 83 per cent increase in citizenship applications finalised in the last six months of 2018 compared with the same period last year.

Between July and December 2018, almost 73,000 citizenship applications were finalised. This is compared to almost 40,000 during the same period in 2017.

"Australia Day is by far the most popular day to become a citizen and we are expecting more than 16,200 people to participate in ceremonies on Australia Day this year," Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs David Coleman said.

"This is an increase of more than 4,000 people compared with Australia Day in 2018, reflecting our commitment to ensure citizenship is at the forefront of our national celebrations.



This Australian state wants more skilled migrants


South Australia's Premier, Steven Marshall, has made a plea to the Prime Minister, calling for Australia's migration policy to allow for more skilled migrants across regional Australia.

He said states such as South Australia and Tasmania, as well as the Northern Territory, have vastly different needs to Sydney and Melbourne and he wants to see designated area migration agreements - DAMAs - expanded.

The Premier's plan also includes more incentives for international students, and encouraging local residents to stay and work - in a state where about 5,000 locals leave each year.

Chief Executive of South Australia's peak chamber of commerce, Business SA - said many employers across the state support the notion.
