    Australia continues to attract migrants

    As part of its planned migration program, the Australian government annually allocates places for people who want to migrate permanently to Australia.

    Australian migration program today consists of three main streams – skilled stream, family stream and humanitarian stream. Australia’s planned migrant intake for 2013-14 year is over 200,000. This does not include the intake of subclass 457 skilled migrants (around 90,000 annually) and New Zealanders (around 25,000 annually) who do not form part of the annual migration plan.

    Australian permanent residents enjoy many of the rights and privileges of citizens, including access to education, health services, social security benefits (waiting period and special conditions apply) and the right to sponsor close relatives for permanent residency. There are few employment restrictions though some state or federal government positions do require Australian citizenship.

    Permanent residents may remain in Australia indefinitely and multiple entries during the initial 5-year visa. After the expiry of the initial visa the holder is required to have a Resident Return Visa if the individual plans to travel to and from Australia.

    Children born in Australia of permanent residents are Australian citizens by birth.

    Just to share, I am a hardcore poor in the eyes of many, seriously.. !!

    For instance, I feel very painful to spend more than RM300 to buy a mobile phone..

    However, a poor folk like me can access to good healthcare and other good things that you mentioned in your post.. and my kid can have good education (probably better than in australia) WITHOUT the need to migrate to australia..

    My point is - one doesn't need to migrate like a migratory bird to have good things in life..

    CMNG had asked for my permission to post in this Forum and I agreed on provision that he does not solicit for business. This is in view that Australia is a common alternative home for some Malaysians and this could be a topic worth being discussed.

    For your information, cmng is coming over the promote a book he wrote about advising on migration to Australia. I can allow for this thread because whether anyone buys his book is basically a personal choice, only if one thinks it is worth paying money for it. I am hoping he is willing to share his opinions on the Forum (which is free advisory). I understand he is travelling today to KL, so he is offline for today

    Rhiga, I know it was a metaphor
    But to share the biological reason for animals to have migratory patterns, they do it to spawn, to mate. All in the process of procreation. Well, to some, procreation is rated as "a good thing in life"

    Since you have digressed to the topic of procreation..

    I guess you are right…

    Ask gynecologist, they will tell you where their good money comes from..

    Ask those who can’t have children and willing to adopt, I believe they will agree with you…

    I'd seriously encourage everyone to read about emigration...NOT migration.

    The more smart people leaving this land of endless possibilities for good, the easier for the not-so-smart-AND-damn-lazy-beach-bums to cari makan...

    So, Please read up, analyse, peruse, contemplate & then pack up and do the needy...But do leave quietly so that the hopele$$ left-behind-the-migratory-route survivors like moi can survive...

    Imagine how early i have to get up each morn, how hard I have to work to survive if this land of endle$$ po$$ibilie$ was say, Hongkong?

    As in the old adage, "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is KING" ...

    Similar ... "In the land of dungus, the Grade 1 SPM holder is KING" ... yes ?

    In a similar vein, I also encourage all the smart KLSE players to leave and go play in SGX, HKSE, NYSE, etc etc ... leave the KLSE for "dumb ass" like me

    Yup!..I recently was hearing all the grumbling of some HK citizens on how more difficult it is to survive and prosper in this era, its to the point of intolerable circumstances and situation. To the point that suicide is a real possibility of a way out of sufferance and trouble. Actually one tragic event happened while buddy was there..totally shocking! absolutely no indication..it just happened! TRUE!...dan sedih!
    i would be speechless if Malaysians faced with similar and grave circumstances in future..

    yes & No lah bro...either the glas is half full or half empty.

    I have an old Uni mate who early this year bought over his neighbor's smaller 3000sq ft apartment. Each floor has only 4units. He now owns 2 units, with his new dining, library & gym section facing the panoramic & majestic view of the fragrance harbour. The price? HKong$25,000/sq ft. He bought his unit for HK$14000/sqft some yrs back.
    ..and last yr he also bought a few plots of berjaya's bungalow lots opposite MidValley

    No, alhamdullilah, he is not a crooked bizzman in fronting or cohort with your 1govt scumbag$. Just a high flying ruthless corp guy with a soft side & plenty of dough...and luvs single malt too...and by 4ll4h! eye candies as well of course
