Since 1945 around 6.9 million people have come to Australia as new settlers. Their contribution to Australian society, culture and prosperity has been an important factor in shaping the nation. Today, nearly one in four of Australia's more than 21 million people were born overseas, and around 40% have at least one parent born overseas.
Migration is no longer confined to people seeking a better life but relates to a large and growing cohort of people living as global citizens seeking careers and personal development across the world.
The Australian Government recognises the benefit to Australia of migration and continues to look for qualified people to sustain population growth and to cover specific demands in the Australian labour market.
