Permanent Immigration numbers during Labor and Liberal Governments.
The following figures show that there were more Permanent Immigration visas issued under Liberal Governments for the last 6 years, compared to Labor for the 6 years before.
The number of Family Visas issued under Liberal, as a percentage of the total was a little lower than under Labor, but slightly higher skilled visas were issued, again as a percentage.
Looking at pure numbers, the Family visas increased by 16.5% under the Liberals in 2013 to 2019, and by 19.6% for skilled visas during the same period.
Labor 2007 to 2013
