7 Days of Migration – 24/7/19 to 1/8/19

(24th of July to the 1st of August 2019)

Not sure what has happened in the past week with migration? Don’t worry! We have the latest migration news and stories from the past seven days available here at your convenience. No need to do any further research, we have done it all for you.

In this week’s edition, we first have an article by SBS about parent visa rules. According to a reported conducted by the Australian Population Research Institute, partner visa rules in Australia are the most ‘generous’ in comparison to other countries. Mr Bob Birrell has described it as “some of the softest rules on partner eligibility in the western world” (SBS, 2019). However, others suggest otherwise. There is much debate on whether rules are ‘generous’ or ‘rigorous’.

Then there is the story by The Australian. The labour government wants Raheem Kassam, a former chief adviser to the Brexit, visa refused. Under the Migration Act, the Minister for Immigration has the authority to refuse a visa on the grounds of character. The article goes on further and comments on his character and behaviour.

These are just a few stories we have found for you. We have many more stories for you to read below.
