An immigration tariff is a charge levied on immigrants wanting permanent residency within a nation. As a means of applying price theory to a nation's immigration policy, it is generally advocated as an alternative to existing bureaucratic procedures as a means of moderating or better regulating the flow of immigration to a given level.
In March 2015 the Australian government launched an inquiry into the use of an immigration tariff as an alternative to existing immigration arrangements. cite = http://www.pc.gov.au/inquiries/current/migrant-intake/terms-of-reference
