Modified Non-Return Rate Quarterly Report Ending at 30 June 2013

The Modified Non-Return Rate is a calculation of the people who arrive on a Visitor visa, but do not depart before their visa expires, other than those who are granted Skilled, Visitor or Student visas in Australia.

The Modified Non-Return Rate is used as an indicator of Visitor visa compliance, and may be considered by decision-makers when assessing visa applications.

The Global Modified Non-Return Rate is the non-return rate of all visitors to Australia.
Note:

  • The countries, territories and regions listed below under Citizenship are those recognised by the International Civil Aviation Organisation.
