An asylum seeker is someone who is seeking over seas protection, but their claim for refugee has not been decided. A refugee is someone who has been recognised, and will most probable be allowed to live in that county, pdf

Most of asylum seekers applying for protection in Australia have arrived by air planes with a valid visas, and then applied for asylum later, while staying in Australia. boat arrivals only make up a small amount of asylum seekers. It’s most likely that between 96 and 99 percent of asylum seekers arrive by planes. Asylum seekers have stared coming in boats more recently, but boat arrivals still comprise less than half of Australia’s asylum seekers.
