The Australian Migration Journey in 3 Simple Steps!

Step One: The Australian Visa

There are several types of Australian visas including visas for tourism, study, work, and business.

Step Two: Australian Permanent Residency

Visas are only temporary and do not allow you to live and work permanently in  Australia. In order to do so, you must apply for permanent resident status. Note that it is possible to enter the country as a permanent resident, in some cases.

While you are changing your status to permanent resident, you may need to apply for a bridging visa so that you are not staying in Australia unlawfully. This type of visa is granted when your visa has expired and you are waiting for a new status.

Benefits of having Australian Permanent Resident status are:

  • Permanent work authorization
  • Access to subsidised education at an Australian Institution
  • Ability to apply for Medicare, Australia’s health care coverage
  • Option to apply for citizenship after 1 year

Step Three: Australian Citizenship

After a period of time as a permanent resident, you may be eligible to become an Australian citizen! This is the final step in the migration journey and provides the most benefits for yourself and your family.

Benefits of Australian Citizenship are:

  • The right to vote
  • An Australian passport
  • Less bureaucratic paperwork. You’ll no longer need to apply for a Resident Return Visa every time you travel neither to renew it every 5 years to maintain your Permanent Resident status
  • Citizenship sponsorship for your non-Australian children
  • Lower education costs by having access to the student loan system

Requirements for Australian Citizenship:

  • You have lived in Australia legally and continuously for 4 years, held permanent resident status for at least 1 year and satisfy the residency requirement; or
  • You have a parent who is an Australian Citizen; or
  • You were adopted under full Hague Convention Arrangements
