Australia is a country of emigrants. Part 1.
After all, Russian tenderness is nowhere to be occupied;
And we dream of the overseas “heaven”,
So that you can start worrying about Russia.
To us all, born under a single sky,
Given the only homeland – EARTH,
But I remember that I was nourished by Russian bread,
Although nightingales are not here, and here are not those fields.
We do not always feel the sun in May,
It happens in life – you have to leave;
The wife will not wait, there will be no children.
That’s how to wait, how can only mother.
I personally had to meet also five mixed married couples between Ukrainians and Germans, who would not have had a life either in post-war Germany or in the former USSR. In modern Australia it is much easier to get along with the mixed Serbian-Croatian families.
Australians are becoming different ways. Most newcomers come to various official immigration programs, some enter the country on temporary visas, and then try to improve their status; and, finally, the most desperate (mostly Asians) just sail to Australia without any visas on small boats and then try to achieve refugee status. Current information on the official Australian policy on immigration can be found on the official Internet page of the Ministry of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs of Australia ( There are also numerous private migration agents (they must have an appropriate license) and law firms who, for your money, will seek for you any legal clue so that you can become a permanent resident of Australia. Nevertheless, you can get to the rascals, especially if the headquarters of the “agents” are not on the expanses of Australia, but somewhere in Bessarabka in Kiev.
sparsely populated periphery, and miners from remote mines cities, and simply elderly or not very prominent gentlemen. This category of Australians is in great demand for women from South-East Asia, primarily the Philippines.
Two and a half years & quot; pierced & quot; permission to enter for her husband from Uzbekistan is our Australian friend Tamara. And only after the intervention of the Immigration Tribunal husband was allowed to Australia.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in Australia, 113400 new marriages were registered in 2000, of which, in 36.4 per cent of cases, Australian-born Australians “knotted the knot” (as they jokingly talk about marriage) with other halves that were born in other countries (but could already be Australian citizens at the time of marriage). Among them, most were people born in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, the USA, the Philippines, Germany, South Africa, Lebanon, Canada, the Netherlands and Italy.
But most of all foreign wives are wooing themselves & quot; freshly baked & quot; Australians who have relatively recently moved to Australia themselves. They invite wives, first of all, from China, Vietnam and Great Britain.
Some of the newly arrived brides do not hide among their “ones” that they will live with their husbands only until they receive their permanent residence status (in 2000, the “probation period” was two years). I’m sorry for the deceived Australians (most of them are really good people), and at the same time I’m ashamed and hurt for our girls, whose poor upbringing and the plight in their homeland are being pushed into a frankly insincere marriage.
The emphasis in Australia’s immigration policy is constantly changing. So, after the Second World War, the country needed young laborers to cut down the forest, build roads, dams, and the like. The majority of immigrants had to work for two years in such jobs without regard to their former diplomas and experience.
As stressed by his & quot; world-historical & quot; mission is one of the former Kievites: “We were here to dilute the local convicts.” For my part, the author would like to express his sincere gratitude to these “convicts” For the fact that they so hospitably welcome us “clever”.
When deciding whether to permanently reside in Australia (permanent residence), the importance of English language skills and the possibility of rapid employment in Australia is becoming increasingly important.
Australia continues to take around 10,000 refugees each year (most of all from the countries of the former Yugoslavia, the Middle East and Africa). About 4,000 immigrants of Jewish origin (or mixed families) moved from the CIS countries under the so-called special assistance category (Special assistance category) of immigration (created for people who, according to the Australian government, experienced discrimination in their homeland and have support corresponding to the Australian community). The distinctive Odessa accent can often be felt in certain seaside areas of Sydney and Melbourne. You can also buy sweets & quot; Karakum & quot; New York production, & quot; Doctor sausage & quot; or real lard, which in ordinary supermarkets “will not get”.
To discourage the hunt for illegal travel to Australia, the deputies submitted a number of measures to the Parliament of the country, in particular, the ban on granting refugee status to illegal immigrants. In the best case, they will be issued a three-year “protective visa”. The issue of granting refugee status will only be considered after this time. And only then they will be allowed to take their families to Australia. People who have been granted refugee status in other countries will not be eligible for refugee status in Australia. All illegal immigrants will receive fingerprints, palms, take a photograph of the retina of the eye, record a voice and will take DNA genetic material to test their identity and whether they have been denied refugee status in other countries.
caught in the workplace & quot; in Sydney. Often they earned themselves “bread” & raquo; in homes of tolerance, rural farms and in restaurants. In Australia there is a fairly common “kicking-whistleblowing”, which can be understood, given that 7% of adult Australians themselves are looking for work.
My friends from Ukraine repeatedly asked me how to get to work in Australia. Theoretically this is possible, but not very simple.
For consideration of this issue the company must pay the Immigration Department (this amount was about 210 Australian dollars in 1998). Based on this, the immigration authorities must consider your visa application, also considering your identity (for example, you will be refused a visa if you have previously been a criminal in your country or have been in Australia before and tried to create something illegal) and Your health status (especially for specialties related to working with people).
1. Proposal announcement in relevant professional, trade magazines or on the Internet;
2. Employee search through private and public employment offices;
3. Recommendation of the relevant specific professional Australian organization recognized by the Department of Employment;
4. A recent announcement, placed at least once, on Sundays and weekdays in all-Australian and city newspapers (there must be at least four ads in total).
At the same time, the Employment Department demanded adherence to certain rules for writing such announcements (which should detail the conditions of work that would not force the Australians to abandon these proposals).
In 1998, two types of “working visas” were issued in Australia: a sub-class 456 for up to 3 months of stay, which is reusable and allows you to enter the country unlimited number of times for five years or for the duration of the validity of a foreign passport of a specialist ; and long-term (sub-class 457) – from 3 months to 4 years, for professionals who plan to work in Australia for a long time.
If you come to Australia on the & quot; guest visa & quot ;, then you have no right to earn money here. For such an offense, you and your employer will be fined. This & quot; guest & quot; will be sent out of the country and entered in the & quot; blacklists & quot ;.
And the Australians take & raquo; children from abroad. In 1998, the Australians adopted 577 children, 42 percent of whom were brought from abroad (for details, see the chapter “Essays on Australian Society”).
The granting of citizenship to immigrants takes place in a solemn atmosphere with the participation of members of parliament and local officials. Newly-baked Australians read a short oath (there are two options: with reference to God and without such a link, you choose the one that is closer to your heart), then they are handed special certificates, small gifts from various charities and give symbolic trees or bushes for planting on their homesteads. Solemn gifting (granting) & quot; citizenship is held during the state holidays of the country, especially the Day of Australia, in which Australians traditionally celebrate the anniversary of the white settlement of the country with solemn salutes in the cities and shish kebabs with beer on the nature. However, the Australian aborigines call this date “Invasion Day” and suggest moving the day of Australia to another number.
In 1999, during the Day of Australia, also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the institution of Australian citizenship. In the second half of the twentieth century, Australia enriched almost 6 million immigrants.
Despite their constant political demands for special rights for themselves as the native population of New Zealand, Maori have recently been increasingly immigrating to Australia, which even has radio stations broadcasting in Maori.
Moreover, finding a job in Australia is now quite difficult, given the rather high unemployment rate (over 7% of the able-bodied population at the end of 1999). To survive these first two years, a family of three people need to bring about 20 thousand US dollars. Therefore, it is not surprising that the results of a recent survey of newly arrived immigrants from different countries show that 46.2% of them believe that they had a higher standard of living in their homeland.
Like other Western countries, Australia is trying to counteract the decline in the birth rate of children in the country and the aging of the population due to its immigration policy (see also the chapter “Essays on Australian Society”).
However, in formally democratic Australia, no one prevented immigrants from creating their political or cultural organizations, ethnic Saturday schools, libraries, scientific institutions, including the departments of national (eg, Ukrainian) research, museums, credit unions, print newspapers in their native languages, build national Church or erect monuments to their national heroes, hold festivals of Russian poets. Some ethnic communities (including, mainly, political immigration of Russians and Ukrainians) have made the most of this; Others, like the Italian, were significantly less organized. Some immigrants in their spare time have created a great literary and scientific heritage that is still waiting for their time to be recognized in their homeland. These are dozens of artists, writers and historians.
