Girl with autism to be deported after failing immigration 'health' checks

A 16-year-old girl with autism who has been living in Australia for eight years could be deported within weeks because she failed immigration medical assessments and the Assistant Immigration Minister has refused to intervene.

Blacktown schoolgirl Sumaya Bhuiyan has autism spectrum disorder. Her family's application for permanent residency was rejected in 2013 after immigration health checks found Sumaya had a "moderate developmental delay" that would result in significant cost to Australian taxpayers, her mother Nasrin Haque said.

Dr Haque, a GP working in two medical practices in western Sydney, has until Friday, February 24, to book flights.

Dr Haque and her son Sakir, 14, have the option of remaining in Australia on temporary visas or leaving with Sumaya for Hungary, where the family are citizens and where her husband, also a doctor, still lives. The family are originally from Bangladesh.

Neither Dr Haque nor her children speak Hungarian. Moving to Hungary would mean significant disruption to the children's education and, for Dr Haque, giving up work – hard-won after years studying English and completing the requirements to have her medical qualifications recognised in Australia.

It would also mean leaving their extended family, who are all Australian citizens - Dr Haque's mother and father, who currently live with them, and her sister, her brother and their children.

Under section 351 of the Migration Act 1958, the Assistant Minister has the power to overturn immigration decisions if he or she thinks it is in the public interest to do so. More than 32,000 people have signed the family's online petition appealing for ministerial intervention.

More millionaires migrate to Australia than anywhere else in the world: report

More millionaires migrate to Australia

Australia topped the chart as it saw as many as 11,000 millionaires moving here, followed by the US with 10,000 and Canada with 8,000 in the second and third place respectively.

Australia is the top destination for millionaires from the world over, a new report has revealed.

A research on global wealth and migration trends by the New World Wealth has found that nearly 11,000 millionaires moved to Australia in 2016, retaining the top spot for the second straight year beating the traditional destinations for the world's rich, such as the UK and America which attracted 3,000 and 10,000 millionaires respectively last year.

Other countries that attracted rich migrants include Canada, UAE, New Zealand and Israel.

According to The 2017 Global Wealth Review: Worldwide Wealth and Wealth Migration Trends report, the reasons behind more rich migrants choosing Australia than the US and the UK is Australia's healthcare system, its location and the country's perceived immunity to the turmoil in the Middle Ease and Europe's migrant crisis.

Australia's fast visa processing for investment and business, the ease of doing business with other Asian economies, relatively higher economic growth, the climate, better civic amenities and lifestyle here are the biggest draw for rich migrants, according to the report.

India was among the top five countries in 2016 which had the maximum outflow of the ultra-rich citizens moving to other countries.

Of the 264,000 millionaires in India, 6,000 super-rich Indians changed their domicile last year compared to 4,000 in the previous year.

The report said there were approximately 13.6 million millionaires in the world at the end of 2016 and worldwide their wealth stood at US$69 trillion.

The report expects a 35 percent rise in the global wealth in the next ten years with India, China, Vietnam, Mauritius and Sri Lanka to emerge as the top performing wealth markets.
