Why you think 4.3million is too low? or too high?

I think 4 million sounds like a reasonable number - given that a HUGE percentage of those would be eVisas issued for tourists....

And yet, "about 4.3 million people were granted temporary and permanent visas to Australia in 2006-2007".

Sounds like we've got the balance right.

Sounds fine to me.

Australia had 5.5 million tourists between 2005-2006 alone. That's a lot of temporary visas.

"It is crucial that we maintain the integrity of our immigration system and ensure that people meet the criteria for the visas they apply for."

Very sensible, in the UK this would be branded as "racist".

If you see the net movement is 2,12,968.
Total Arrivals : 11 269 335
Total Departures: 11 056 367
Net = Total Arrivals - Total Departures
