Immigration To Victoria Reaches As Many As 65,000

True to its slogan "The Place to Be", Victoria is now home to as many as 65,000 skilled migrants, particularly the eclectic city of Melbourne. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistic, this is a record figure for the state of Victoria since the government launched its well-spent $6 million Skilled Migration Strategy to attract and retain skilled migrants for over a year now.

True to its slogan "The Place to Be", Victoria is now home to as many as 65,000 skilled migrants, particularly the eclectic city of Melbourne. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistic, this is a record figure for the state of Victoria since the government launched its well-spent $6 million Skilled Migration Strategy to attract and retain skilled migrants for over a year now.

More than 14,800 of those were overseas migrants, who helped swell the state's overall population count to 5,078,466. Melbourne, in particular, is a favourite city, with its restless business district, festive art scene, diverse culinary sites, and an overall vibrant atmosphere.

"Victoria is making records as the leading Australian immigration for overseas migrants while at a national level population growth is the highest in 17 years," state treasurer John Brumby said.

"This confirms Victoria's status as the leading non-resource based state with growth behind only mineral rich Queensland and Western Australia."

With a brisk Australian visa program such as the 457 visa for skilled workers, the state of Victoria hopes to secure its six million target population by the year 2025. Skilled migrants are still needed, not just by the state but by the rest of Australia, in filling shortages in the workforce.

But the reality of Australian immigration isn't merely aimed at plugging gaps in the industry and professional sector. At a more idealistic level, migration is giving more colour, character, and diversity to the state of Victoria. People who migrate to Australia mostly include British nationals, Indonesians, Indians, Italians, Greeks, Chinese, and many others. Together, they create a lovely multicultural Victoria that's quite possibly not just the Place to Be, but also the Place to Lose Yourself In.
