Australia Begins Thief Immigration

Posted by w_thames_the_d on February 5, 2014


Australia has begun a plan to allow he world’s most prolific thieves to immigrate there. Pretty soon Australia will be a cesspool of phlegm hacking dunderheads, ruining the quality of life with their mere presence.

Excerpt
Chinese immigration into Australia now represents the third largest group after migrants from the UK and New Zealand.

There’s little doubt which country Australia is targeting under its immigration scheme for the super-wealthy; the investment visa is called sub-class 188 and its permanent visa is called sub-class 888.

In China, the number eight is culturally associated with wealth, prosperity and good fortune and rich Chinese nationals have been queuing up for the opportunity to live in Australia under the millionaire visa program.

Since the scheme was launched in November 2012, 91% of the 545 applicants for the visas have been Chinese nationals, according to figures from the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

So far, Australia has granted 65 ‘significant investor’ visas to mainland Chinese.

The requirements for getting one of the highly prized visas are simple: all you need is a clean criminal record and $A5 million ($US4.37 million) to invest. There is no language requirement, upper age limit and applicants do not even have to set up a business in Australia.
