Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia, Jun 2011

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by Sir Ride Alot, Aug 4, 2011.

  1. The outflow from the nanny state continues.

    This is good news for those of us that want a less populated Australia and it would have also reduced our carbon emissions. No need for a carbon tax now.



    Maybe we should keep Julia after all. Naa just kidding.

  3. What about long term residents? They have a slightly larger affect.

  4. F'all to do with nanny-statism and everything to do with our currently kick-ass currency. IMHO, of course.

  5. You don't like people to holiday and spend their money in Australia? I don't get it.

  6. What is more important for Oz, temporary vacationers or visitors of less than 3 months or people who visit and then decide to stay, to become naturalized and for the most part are skilled in key trades?

    I say that because I plan on being in Oz around November of 2012 and my goal unless I find it otherwise acceptable to me is to find myself a place, a livelihood and a goal.

    Skillwise I have most of it all, a heavy equipment mechanic a welder and fabricator, plant control systems technician and I have extensive concrete knowledge also as being what you blokes call an agitator driver. 16 years driving and being a supervisor.

    I have been living in Alaska since 1992 and now I am ready to see more of the world, and Oz looks and sounds like it needs more skilled people.

    Yes I am aware its a whole lot warmer there.
