Come by boat and get a visa

October 31, 2010 § 3 Comments

ASYLUM-SEEKERS who arrive unlawfully in Australia have a far greater chance of gaining a visa than those applying from outside the country, according to official figures. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s annual report reveals about 9000 of the 47,000 asylum-seekers who applied for visas from overseas received them, which was fewer than 20% of all applications. But for unlawful arrivals, including those who turned up on boats, more than half who applied for visas were granted them. (daily telegraph)
