India has the third-largest migrant community in Australia

Indians in Australia

The number of Indian migrants in Australia is growing at an exponential rate. India has the third-largest migrant community in Australia. Every year, a huge number of Indians apply for Australian Permanent Residency and later on citizenship.

The Australian Govt. comes out with its permanent intake admission levels every year based on social and economic targets. For 2019-2020 the Australia Govt. has announced that it will admit 160,000 permanent migrants.

Australia encourages migrants to come and settle in the country. The reasons include:

There are two main streams in the Australian migration program:

Here is the breakup of the Skill Stream:

Skill Stream No. of places
Employer-sponsored 30,000
Skilled Independent 16,652
State/Territory Nominated 24,968
Business Innovation & Investment 6,862

Here is the breakup of the Family Stream:

Family Stream No. of places
Partner 39,799
Parent 7,371
Other family members 562

Considering both migrants and citizens, Indians make up the largest migrant group in Australia.

Australia has reduced the immigration intake by 30,000 for this year.  India is the largest source country for migrants in Australia. India is also the largest source country for Australian citizenship with more than 28,000 Indians obtaining citizenship every year.

India ranked 1st for the sixth consecutive year as the largest source country for Australian citizenship. On the second and third place are Britain and China respectively. The increase in the number of citizenship applications from Indians is due to the high number of Indians obtaining Australian Permanent Residency under the Skill Stream. 33,611 visa spots of all PR Visas in the Skill Stream went to Indians last year.
