One of Australia's migration agents recently ran into some trouble when applying for a Orphan Relative Visa (Subclass 117) on behalf of a client.

The possibility for error has been reduced in the new system. ...

Including 505, 000 temporary residents such as students and people on working holidays and section 457 visas, the OECD says 715, 000 foreigners came to stay in Australia in 2011 - the third largest inflow of any Western country, after the United States and Germany. ...

Australia's population will tick past the 23 million mark on Tuesday night, as the country continues to grow at the fastest rate in the developed world. The Australian Bureau of Statistics' population counter will tick over to 23 million at 9.57pm. Social researchers say the milestone baby will most likely be a boy called Jack.
