Highest number of millionaires immigrated to Australia, says Global Wealth Review

Australia has emerged as the top nation in the world for inflow of millionaires as per the report of the Global Wealth Review that keeps a track on the immigration trends and wealth data. Australia has surged ahead of conventional destinations such as the US or the UK. This is also the second consecutive year that Australia has welcomed highest number of millionaires than any other nation in the world.

Immigration of global wealth to Australia is accelerating as it witnessed the arrival of 82, 000 millionaires in 2016 when compared to the 64,000 millionaires in 2015, quotes Fa Mag. 

The healthcare system as well as the geographical location of Australia is what make it appealing to the High-net-worth market. It is thus a suitable destination for business transactions with Asia, according to Global Wealth Review.

At the conclusion of 2016, there were around 13.6 millionaires in the world and their combined wealth was 69 trillion dollars.

The wealth of the world is anticipated to increase considerably in the next ten years. The assessment of the asset value expectations and recent trends indicate that there will be a 35% increase in the value of High-net-worth holdings by the year 2026.

Based on the forecasts of the emerging economic growth, India, China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Mauritius will be the top performing wealth markets.

In spite of this, economies in the west could continue to sustain on their own if in case there are trade power produce profits and lower taxes.

According to the Global Wealth Review, the instability in Europe is expected to last for a shorter term. There was a decrease of 5% in the HNW wealth of the UK due to the Brexit referendum. Nevertheless, over the long-term, Brexit is likely to be an overall positive thing for the UK owing to decrease in tax rates and fresh trade collaborations.

The US was the wealthiest nation in the world having 51.3 trillion dollars of wealth, China the second wealthiest with 19.1 trillion dollars and Japan the third wealthiest with 16 trillion dollars. The basis on which wealth holdings were assessed by Global Wealth Review was the exclusion of liabilities, business interests, equities, cash, and property.

People residing in small tax havens such as the Liechtenstein and Monaco were amongst the richest in the world on the basis of per capita income. The average net worth per person was 1.7 million dollars in Monaco that was followed by Liechtenstein with 640,000 dollars net worth per person and Luxembourg with 300,000 dollars net worth per person.

Migrants to Australia to be redirected from Sydney to regional areas

As Sydney house prices continue to surge exponentially, the Australian government is planning to redirect migrants to regional areas.

Anthony Roberts, the NSW Planning Minister, had earlier expressed apprehensions that Sydney’s burgeoning population was having on its home prices. With Australia’s largest city’s population set to reach 9.9 million within two decades, 660,000 new homes are needed to accommodate them.

Two-thirds of Sydney’s population rise would reportedly be driven by foreign and interstate migrants.

Alex Hawke, Federal Assistant Immigration Minister, was quoted by the Daily Telegraph as saying that one of the Turnbull government’s  major priorities was looking at ways of goading migrants to settle in places other than Sydney - a city which has seen its house prices jump by 16 percent in the past one year.

He said that the government appreciated the fact that Sydney will continue being an attractive destination for people from abroad and within Australia, but they were working with state and regional governments to collaborate with them to see how migrants could be attracted to other regional centres.

According to him, regions which were identified included the Central Coast and Goulburn could be developed to make them more luring to migrants.

Newly arrived immigrants in Australia are united by the bond of street art

Australia of late has seen a polarization of public views regarding immigration. With the aim of overhauling public perception regarding immigration, 300 newly arrived immigrants and refugees in Australia have collaborated with four top street artists in Australia to create themed murals.

Unveiled later this week in the center of the financial district in Sydney, the murals are a description of images inspired by the native landscapes and beauty and words that convey feelings regarding immigration. They also include the prized objects that the refugees had carried along with them to Australia.

Kaff-eine, the former criminal lawyer in Australia who has taken up street art said that the project aimed at highlighting the resemblance between the native land and the immigrated nation. The street art project also intends to eliminate increasing distrust regarding immigrants in Australia.

The former criminal lawyer turned street artist said that the misconception regarding immigration was a phenomenon not limited to Australia, alone, it was relevant everywhere.

Immigration and border security have emerged as highly debated issues in Australian politics and have dominated the past elections. It has also resulted in indefinite detention policy for individuals who seek to arrive in Australia by boats.

Australia’s immigration system based on points and policies for offshore detention have even been noticed by the international community. In fact, recently the US President Donald Trump was full of praise for the Australian immigration policies and called for similar policies being implemented in the US too.

The four street artists also include Ben Frost, Regan Tamanui, and Brad Eastman. The four street artists have organized workshops for newly arrived youths from nations such as Syria, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Iraq and several other nations across the world.

Notwithstanding the huge linguistic and cultural differences and shyness, the immigrants were united by a common objective, said Kaff-eine.

The immigrants were of the view that irrespective of their pasts, they were currently Australian residents and this was the common binding thread, added Kaff-eine. It is tough for people to get angry with others when they have shared similarities.

One of the immigrants painted the words free and young and was, in fact, unaware of the fact initially that these words were a part of the national anthem of Australia also.

Australia needs more immigrants for a younger and more fertile nation

The need for having more immigrants in Australia seems to have been put on a back burner amidst all the chaos for norms of foreign religions.

First of all, it is economic expediency. Immigrants are needed in Australia as the natives can’t replace themselves. No industrial nation, irrespective of its level of advancement can afford not to have a younger population that replaces the aging.

The accepted and appropriate shape of a nation’s demography is an inverted triangle that has lesser aged people at the base and increased number of youth and children at the top. This has to be sustained for several generations as only then Australia can support the frail and aged population who cannot work, quotes The Australian. 

As the top becomes narrower, it becomes increasingly difficult to sustain the increasing number of people at the base. This is more so applicable to Australia owing to the increasing age of death. This also imposes much taxation burden for the families at the middle, who have to cater to the children as well.

The demography of Australia has remained unchanged for the last one generation. The overall rate of fertility is marginally above all time lowest level in 2001 with 1.74. This was a reflection of the huge decrease in the earlier thirty years when expecting parents decided to have lesser children.

This trend has been passed on to the next generation as well with mothers aging and increased number of people remaining childless. A marriage which remains the most accepted mode of an average man having children has been in the downturn and the average age of having the first child is more than 30 years of age. This also means lesser number of births per woman in the long-term.

It is inconsequential whether this phenomenon is a good or bad one at the individual level.  At the national level, this is not at all a good thing as the average fertility rate stands at mere 1.88. Quite interestingly the birth rates were at its highest since the mid-1970s in the period of Howard as the Prime Minister with 2.02 babies per woman.

Ever since that exception, the national average birth rate has once again gone down below the levels of replacement. Therefore more immigrants are needed in Australia.

Immigration department of Australia moves ahead with digital transformation

The Australian Immigration department is moving ahead with its wide-ranging technology-driven transformations that are changing the traveling experience of the travelers amidst other agencies struggling to adopt the changes of innovative technology.

Though the travelers commuting through the airports in Australia might not notice the transformation, the head of the technology in immigration department has said that the efforts to transform business are being coupled with adopting digital programs. It is implementing innovative technology even while other government agencies are struggling with IT related issues.

Chief Information Officer of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection Randall Brugeaud was reported as saying that the agency leaders are increasing their efforts to accentuate the technology innovations. He added that the innovations of technology are required to be motivated by the executive actions to succeed.

With a growing annual business of 4-6%, the immigration department is launching automation at customs doing away with staff. More than 80% of the travelers in the Christmas season were processed with the aid of automation, devoid of any human interaction.

Mr. Brugeaud further elaborated that the immigration department would become virtually invisible in some cases to travelers and corporate not breaching the law.

Immigration is leaping ahead to the next levels of innovation in digital technology that involves the transformation of infrastructure as also building the web-site.

Centrelink is in a mess owing to the robot-debt, which is an automated system to collate information possessed by the Taxation Office of Australia and Immigration department in estimating overpayments.

ATO is also scrambled in desperate efforts to save the tax return initiative from being affected by the disastrous online crash prior to Christmas and has given up most of its IT initiatives for this year.
The sweeping technological innovations adopted by immigration department brought about changes in work culture though all of the staff failed to adapt to the changes.

It is a true challenge for people to adapt to cultural changes, said Mr. Brugeaud. Employees who had been all the while accustomed to carrying single function might have been demanded to become multi-discipline functional. He added that it was a tough challenge to deal with and was not possible for everyone to do so.

Increased numbers of nurses from the Philippines are needed in Australia

Australia is witnessing a huge demand for personal care workers and allied healthcare professionals and more nurses from the Philippines are being encouraged to take up a job in the nation.

A Registered migration agent in Australia, Vikram Sharma has said that the major issue faced by Australia in the recent years is that most of its professionals are retiring of late. He added that Australia is in need of more and more professionals in the healthcare sector to cater to the requirements of the population that are aging. Vikram was speaking at Cebu city’s Nursing Career Expo in Australia that was attended by more than 200 nurses.

The Federal Employment Department of Australia has projected that the nation will be in need of around 800,000 healthcare and social assistance professionals by 2025, quotes CEBU Daily News.  
Meanwhile, the statistics from Labor and Employment department shows that every year there are 200,000 nurses graduating in the Philippines while only 2,500 nursing jobs were available for them in that nation.

As a result, the remaining nurses are left with no option but to immigrate overseas or remain in the Philippines and be employed in unrelated sectors amidst wait for a vacancy.

Sharma said that the Lawson College, of which he was also the President aimed to impart training to the nurses to equip them with skills that would qualify them to obtain a permanent residency in Australia. This would also make them qualified to be employed any part of the world.

The healthcare training program offered by Lawson College includes courses in business as well. The reason is that employers in Australia give more importance to nurses with management skills that are required in the competitive workplaces, said Sharma.

The nurses from the Philippines prefer to immigrate to Australia owing to the geographical proximity and climatic compatibility. 

The qualifications of nurses from the Philippines are recognized in Australia too and the additional requirement is that they need to appear for a registration exam. Owing to the larger economy of Australia the pay package is also higher while compared to other nations, added Sharma.

The immigration system of Australia is praised as worth emulating by Donald Trump

The immigration system of Australia that is based on merit has been praised by the US President Donald Trump. He expressed this view in his speech to the US Congress and advocated the implementation of the same immigration system in the US too, as quoted by the 9 News.
Trump further explained that positive and real reform to the immigration system was achievable. The focus of these reforms has to be strengthening the security of the nation, restoring respect for laws and betterment of salaries and job prospects for the US nationals. This was the first address of the US present for the US Congress’ joint session.

Donald Trump also added that the existing US immigration system based on low-skilled immigration was unsuccessful in protecting the native workers and he gave the examples of immigration system of Australia and Canada in this regard.

He elaborated on this immigration system and said that it was based on the fundamental principle that immigrants seeking entry to the nation must be able to financially support themselves. Trump explained that the US does not follow this principle whish results in straining the resources of the government.

Trump advocated a merit-based immigration regime as that would increase salaries, save resources and assist several struggling families including that of immigrants in raising the standard of living.

Understanding the Australian immigration policy and how the UK can adopt it after exiting from the EU

A slogan that highlights the immigration policy of Australia is that the Australians decide who arrives at their nation as well as the circumstances in which they arrive.

Perhaps this is what the Prime Minister of the UK Theresa May and its Home secretary Amber Rudd will have in their mind while shaping the immigration policy of the UK after exit from the European Union.

Here is a brief synopsis of the immigration policy and its execution in Australia. The government of Australia sets an target for receiving immigrants every year and for 2017 it is around 200, 000. This total target is then divided into two three categories. The number of refugees is first settled upon.

All refugees who arrive in Australia are very well scrutinized so as to ensure that any individuals who might be a concern to the security authorities or crime convicts are even accidentally permitted to enter the nation.

A percentage of the overseas immigrants who have approved the visa to arrive in Australia are through the family scheme. The majority of them are the ones who will be marrying the Australian nationals.

A large majority of the immigrants who are authorized to arrive in Australia are in the skilled migrants’ category. The government of Australia evaluates the immigrants to determine their skills to ensure that the economy of the nation continues to flourish.

A point’s based system assesses the immigrants for their eligibility based on their qualifications, age, language, and experience. The more the immigrant applicant is qualified, higher are the points that he receives. It is mandatory that immigrants who arrive through the skilled migration scheme have knowledge of the English language, as quoted by the Express Co UK.
The skilled migration program is specifically important for Australia. Though it makes a huge investment in the education sector, Australia has a constant demand for skilled professionals in areas that have a scarcity of skilled workers. The skilled migration program is nondiscriminatory and immigrants are chosen irrespective of their religion, the nation of origin, race or gender.

Immigrants are chosen on the basis of their skills. Currently, Indians account for 22 percent of the total immigrants, Chinese for 16% and Britons for 10%. Australia’s liberal immigration program ensures that a very large percentage of its population is overseas immigrants.

Almost 24% of the Australians are those born outside the nation and around 43% of them are those whose one parent was not born in Australia. In spite of the large population of the immigrants, Australia is very stable as a nation both socially and politically.

Australia has comparatively low crime rate, a high level of social integration and Australia is ranked very high on the international index for happiness. These are broadly the features of the immigration policies of Australia that define the do's.

However there are some don’ts also that are a part of the Australian immigration policy.

Australia does not permit entry of immigrants who attempt to override the immigration laws by taking the assistance of people who assist in illegally sneaking in immigrants to the nation.

Immigrants who intend to ignore the legal framework for immigration and sneak into Australia through boats will not succeed. These immigrants will either be turned back or in case if this is not possible they will be shifted to the Nauru or Papua New Guinea’s processing centers. The overseas individuals who are not refugees are sent back to their native nations.

Though this immigration policy of Australia is tough and controversial, it is needed to ensure that the integrity of its immigration policy is maintained and does not collapse. By refusing entry of immigrants through people smugglers, Australian government ensures that it is the legal framework that governs the immigration policy. It does not approve the idea of permitting people to arrive into the nation without knowledge of their background.

A regulated immigration policy ensures that the economy flourishes. Australia has a history of the glorious economic growth of 26 years. It is in a position to curb any social problems that might arise out of immigration.  A regulated immigration policy will also be welcomed by the citizens.

An experienced immigration’s consultant who has the experience and the reliability can serve every purpose. Y-Axis an Registered Migration Agent Melbourne would fulfill every travel need without a benefit of a doubt.

Suggestions for emigrants to Australia

Before applying to migrate to Australia, understand which visa class you may be eligible for as there are visa classes running into hundreds in Australia. Check out the DIBP website or speak to an accredited migration agent to find out which class you truly fit into. In fact, many MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority) approved migration agents offer online evaluations.
We would like to digress here as we would like to state where most people would like to migrate to in Australia. They would consider the big five cities - Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. That is because they are considered cosmopolitan, offer a better quality of life and work opportunities and are internationally connected.
Make sure you have all the required documents such as birth certificate, valid passport, documents of identity with you. Take their photocopies and keep the originals in a secure place, especially where you can easily access them.
Though Australia may seem like a homogeneous country, each city, province and state differs from the other in more ways than one. Therefore, the job opportunities, way of life and the rules vary from region to region. All this information, of course, can be sourced from Internet, authoritative books on Australia and by paying a visit to the Australian consulate closest to you.
The DIBP expects that to apply in a proper fashion one must use the latest version of each form, failing which your application will not be accepted as they would qualify it as improper. For your information, the versions of forms can change very frequently, so you need to check if the version is of the latest date.

Another thing you need to bear in mind while applying for a visa is that you inform your immediate previous employers that you have plans of relocating to Australia as DIBP would contact them. Keep ready your pay slips or put them at least on your Internet so that you can take their printouts.  These are most important as they are the key to your employment – the basis on which your visa may get rejected or approved.
In addition, DIBP would like to know if the duties you discharged in your previous employments are the ones which are relevant to your nominated occupation. When you give your employer references, make sure you provide adequate information about their total sphere of work. This will only buttress your chances of bagging a visa.

Honesty doesn’t hurt. In fact, it only portrays you in a positive light, which is what will satisfy both the immigration authorities and your future employers. For instance, if you have been convicted in even a minor case, you MUST declare it. With technology, no one can keep their falsely keep their record squeaky clean by pushing unpleasant things under the carpet. It would eventually be found out and the attendant embarrassment that comes with it can be truly humiliating. It can ruin your entire career, and if you are sent back, chances of getting a job even in you home country would be remote.

Also, make sure that you submit your application well ahead of the last date. Inadvertent delays do happen and you just cannot prevent them.  Here, most importantly, when dealing with DIBP, respond to all of their requests promptly. It also does matter for your application to be approved.

Please remember that emigration is once-in –a-lifetime investment, which is why you cannot afford to be slacking off at any stage of your application process. It is also an investment as it would be painful if your application is rejected. These are, in fact, the most important things you cannot afford to forget. You need to, therefore, carry enough money that you can expend on a rainy day.

Be very patient when application is not processed swiftly as just like in India, bureaucracy in government departments can be painful to put up with. So bide your time when all of this is happening. It might happen very quickly for some people, but that can be attributed to pure luck. So if it happens to your friend, do not assume that you are unlucky.

If all this sounds frightening to you, it frankly was not the intention of this writer. It is not really as scary as it seems and besides these suggestions are meant only to make you extra cautious. 

As we have stated above, you cannot understate the importance of a MARA. If you are looking for a registered migration agent in Melbourne or for that matter in any other city in the Land Down Under, you will surely come across one if you research meticulously.  When you have decided to hire one, do not hesitate to ask them what may seem trivial. Do not be EMBARASSED at any stage when posing them any questions. It is after all their business to be patient. That entails them to be tolerant while listening to all your concerns. Do not hold back as this is the most important career decision of your whole life.  Moving to a country to spend the remainder of your life is not a matter you can trifle with!!!
