    You cant walk in. You need to come by boat or catch a plane.

    Uh you understand that while Australia is a continent it is also an island. No one can walk in there from anywhere. Some come in boats and they get put in detention centres and actually treated pretty badly and a bunch of them were sent to the Island of Nauru to be imprisoned in a detention centre over there.

    Australia and New Zealand are separated by a lot of water. They are both islands. They used to let each other in to each others countries pretty freely but then massive amounts of Asians started to use New Zealand as a back door to get into better work opportunities in Australia and Australia then shut the door on New Zealanders.

    However all first world countries are letting in masses of LEGAL immigrants to inflate economies and so as not to look unPC with little thought to the future from the ruling governments and that includes the USA. The one first world country that would be an exception is perhaps Japan I've heard it's pretty hard to get to live there.

    No--you have to apply to become a citizen, and it is a very long process. You have to prove that you have a skill that is needed in the country you intend to immigrate to, and that there is enough demand for that talent that you can support yourself from it. It's a 10 year process in Australia.

    No as Australia has strict immigration rules. You can apply at an Australian embassy or with Australian immigration showing what you can contribute to Australia such as a qualification needed in Australia such as in the medical field, you can study in an Australian University and apply to stay after you have successfully completed your course, maybe open a business that helps Australia such as an export business, or are a multi millionaire who will bring their money and buy a residency permit which over time may lead to a citizenship to live here. You cannot just enter Australia and expect citizenship or work without a working visa.

    I believe you'll find that Australia is surrounded by water. So unless your name is Aquaman that's going to be a problem.

    It’s an island, so you can’t walk in.

    Any asylum-seeker entering by boat, gets taken to our neighbour and friend, Papua New Guinea, on terms that they can NEVER be settled in Australia. If they are recognised as a refugee, they live in PNG, where the locals don’t take no sh!t from anyone, least of all uppity foreigners seeking free handouts.

    Any non-citizen needs a visa to get in.

    A non-citizen can enter on a visa and then claim asylum. In that case, they cannot be deported until their asylum case is processed and decided against them.

    Almost all the other migrants - who are not tourists - can get permanent residence, which they can convert to citizenship.

    Most of them have a high level of English, a tertiary professional or trade qualification PLUS three years work experience in that trade or profession before they apply, and have to be young adults.

    An Australian citizen can sponsor a spouse who is not qualified.

    So, in short, no. Australia does not have anything like the immigration problem that the USA has with its land borders.

    We still have leftists whose virtue signalling to entice illegals has resulted in hundreds and hundreds of men, women and children being drowned at sea. But they don’t givea sh!t about their deaths - too busy preening themselves in the cafes of the trendy.

    For some reason the left wing seems to attract these retarded turds with the ethics and intellect of an infant.

    No, Australia is an island, so nobody can walk into it. They might swim or take a boat. Over the last 65 years, Australia has welcomed British immigrants in order to grow the population. More recently (last couple of decades), Australia has wooed trained workers for its labor force because it is necessary to force workers to work for less pay or lose their jobs so that the millionaires and large companies could make unfair profits. (paragraph) The link below says that the change in the year 2010 allocated 168,700 skilled immigrants.
