Published
Last reviewed

This edition of Overseas migration examines 2020 which was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure of the international border by the Australian Government from 20 March 2020 directly affected the level of international arrivals and departures from that point, and consequently net overseas migration (NOM).

The report draws on a range of statistics published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Department of Home Affairs. It provides an overview of Queensland’s net overseas migration (NOM) for the year to 31 December 2020 highlighting key features of the age and sex profile, and major visa groupings by visa type. NOM data for all quarters in 2020 are preliminary and subject to revision.

Selected information on the characteristics of persons granted temporary resident (skilled) visas and international students in Queensland at 31 December 2020 are also reported.
