How to Migrate to Australia
Migrating to another country is a big step. Make your migration a success by preparing carefully. This Article describes the steps you can take to prepare for migration to Australia.
Employer Sponsored Workers:
If you can find an employer who is prepared to offer you a job, this can be the quickest way to get your first foot into Australia. It can easily lead to a permanent residency. Work for the same employer for two years, keep your nose clean and apply for residency.
This works for approved skills only and provided the employer can satisfy the government that no Australian worker is available for the job. For highly skilled jobs it is possible to come straight in on a permanent visa, dependent upon available schemes.
Known as a Business Skills Visa, you will need to establish or invest in an Australian business. Provided your business successfully complies with the requirements, for example, by employing the necessary number of Australians, this too can lead to permanent residency. I believe buying a franchise can work.
Doctors and Nurses:
There is a shortage of both doctors and nurses and as such there are many opportunities for those with qualifications to move to Australia on a permanent basis. I have more information which doctors, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals might find useful.
Working Holiday Visa (WHV):
The Working Holiday Visa is clearly not permanent. You are allowed to work for the entire period if you wish, although you can only work for a maximum of six months with any one employer.
The WHV and the similar Work and Holiday visas are only available to passport holders from qualifying countries, like Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
Getting Professional Assistance:
Get a Migration Agent. Make sure they are MARA (Migration Agents Registration Authority) registered. They know all this stuff inside and out.
