Google Trends has reported ongoing interest in the number of people from the United States and Canada searching ‘move to Australia’ and similar search terms since the start of 2017. The increased interest to move to Australia is likely to be linked to ‘the Trump effect’, which has stirred political controversy in and around the US.
There was a significant peak in interest for search terms related to ‘moving to Australia’ in early November 2016 when the US Election results were announced, and now following Trump’s inauguration on 20 January 2017 and the fulfilment of some of his campaign promises, Google Trend graphs show there is continued interest in moving to Australia.
Google searches for terms such as ‘visas to Australia’ and ‘live in Australia’ were dominated by searches coming from the US and Canada, as shown above.
