Revive the Migration Memo with a 3-minute survey

Plus, do you know anyone who would like to share their experiences for a story?


2020 has been full of surprises. One has been the lack of the Friday Migration Memo!

Forgive the absence … I became busy with bushfires, then coronavirus, then another project.

2021 Planning

I’m looking at reviving the Migration Memo next year, and I’m keen to understand what you want from it.

I have developed a short, 3-minute survey that will help me make the Memo as useful to you as possible.

ABC reporting

After several months seconded onto a separate documentary project, I am back working at Parliament House for ABC on migration matters. This week I am preparing a story on challenges for migrants coming to Australia, just as the UK and Canada make it easier for some to move there.

I am looking to speak to people about their experiences with Australian visa applications and processing, finding flights and navigating quarantine requirements, as well as any other issues that are making immigration difficult during the pandemic.

I will need 15 minutes on the phone with them this week and will ask them to share a photo. The story will be on the ABC website and possibly radio. Please let me know if you can put me in touch with anyone - just reply to this email.

Kind regards,
