It is looking pretty likely that in the next year we will have positive net migration from Australia for the first time ever. But I don’t think it will happen before the election. I am looking forward to Labour and NZ First campaigning on we have too many Australians living here.
The net migration with Australia was 20 more departures than arrivals in June 2014 month and 8,250 for the year.
In June 2013 the net loss was 3,210 for the month and 21,560 for the year.
In June 2012 the net loss was 4,590 for the month and 39,680 for the year.
