There are many things to take into consideration before deciding to move to Australia such as employment, shipping, banking, accommodation and schools although the most important factor remains Immigration.

Move to Australia

Moving to Australia is possible for many people with a wide and diverse range of skills and Australia I very much ‘open’ for immigration, unlike many other countries in the World.
If you’re seriously considering a move to Australia complete our Australia immigration visa checker tool to see if you’re eligible to immigrate to Australia.

With a landmass larger than Europe and a population of less than 25million the only way it can continue to grow and develop as a world power is through new people moving to Australia. However, even though they have one of the most progressive immigration policies in the World the country is only open to the right kind of immigration.

There are no shortcuts when moving to Australia. Obviously there are many ways that new migrants try to play the system, although moving to Australia without the right visa or skills assessment paperwork will often lead to frustration and more importantly a prolonged period of financial hardship and uncertainty.

Student Visas

There are a whole raft of visas to move to Australia and each visa subclass has its own immigration rules, regulations and policies. Australia Immigration can be a minefield to the uninitiated and whilst it’s always possible to complete your own visa application we always recommend the services of an expert migration agent.

The most desirable way to move to Australia is on a 189 PR Visa. The 189 is the very pinnacle of Australia’s Skilled Migration system and for many is the first major step in becoming a fully fledged Australian Citizen. A 189 Visa allows you to live and work anywhere in Australia from day one. In order to move to Australia on a 189 visa you’ll need to have an occupation on Schedule One of the Australian Skilled Occupations List. This Schedule One is known as the SOL and should not be confused with the Consolidated Skilled Occupations List (CSOL).

Although all occupations in the SOL also appear on the CSOL this only shows that if you have an occupation on the SOL that you’re eligible to move to Australia on both the 189 visa and the 190 visa, whilst those with an occupation only on the CSOL can only apply for the 190 PR Australia Visa.

Move to Australia on a 190 Visa
The 190 PR Visa subclass is designed to offer Permanent Residency status and is issued (or sponsored) on a State by State basis.

Australian Immigration consists then of two separate yet interlinked systems. The Federal Nationwide system and the systems run by the individual States and Territories. They both work on the same SkillsSelect platform yet the 190 systems is designed to address key critical skills shortages in the individual Australian States and we’ve explained the most up to date State by State visa information in this section.

Of course emigrating to Australia is a much bigger process than getting your visa, it is a huge project that should be managed with precision and expertise. After your visa process has begun we must start to look at jobs, shipping, accommodation, schools, moving pets, flights and planning for the overall move.

What are the main reasons people choose to move to Australia
Environmental factors: Australia has the cleanest air in the World, due in part obviously to the size of the country combined with extremely low population numbers working out at less than 6 people per square KM.

With such an abundance of nature and amazing weather Australians on the whole embrace the outdoor lifestyle and many people move to Australia for a better and healthier lifestyle for their family. Australia has beaches, rainforests, deserts and mountains contained in 521 National parks!

Australia is open for Immigration; it’s tough and strict but it’s this strict policy that makes people want to move. And because it has the right type of immigration over 45% of Australian Citizens have either moved to Australia or born to parents who’ve moved to Australia.

Moving to Australia has yet further advantages when looking at healthcare and education both individually and for families. Medicare is one of the best systems in the World and on a PR visa you have full Medicare cover. Schools and Universities consistently rank well globally and the opportunities when moving to Australia with children are limitless.

Lots of people move to Australia to get a better work / life balance and it’s true that Australians really embrace their way of life and make the most of their free time

And of course one of the main reasons people move to Australia from all over the World is for the weather. A year round temperate climate and topsy turvy seasons do really mean Christmas Day on the beach whilst those in the Northern Hemisphere shiver in the cold. No comment can be made about the weather though without the usual cautionary warning about being aware of the sun once you move down under to Oz. the sun can be exceptionally string at times so always use sun block and make sure your children cover up adequately when out and about and not just at the beach.

Moving to Australia is one of the biggest and most life changing things you can do for you and your family with the majority of new Skilled Migrants going on to become full Citizens. With Let’s Go! Global it can stop being a dream and become your day to day reality.

We look forward to helping you move to Australia.
