Australia, your next home

Connect

Even with the crisis brought about by COVID 19, work is in demand in Australia. There are great jobs open for all levels. However, it’s hard to get residency and work permits for expats moving to Australia. Immigration rules are a lot stricter for the last 10 years. Most expats looking to transfer and work must offer much-needed skills to get a working permit.

For retired people of any age, visas are given if they possess enough money. So, if you still need to secure a job, it’s helpful to talk to career advisers. Advisors in the country can advise you on job prospects within the region, besides whether your skills and work experiences are needed in the country or not. Here are some helpful links:

People are moving to Australia to study, work, or launch a business. To do this, they must first possess the correct visa. The Department of Home Affairs has an excellent website,
https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au, which walks applicants through the detailed prerequisites and application procedures for the many visa options.

It’s best that, when you opt to do your job hunting in Australia personally, you have at least half a year’s budget at hand. In Australia, ensure to visit Centrelink, a government-approved job search network. The link to its website is

Young graduates moving to Australia increasingly see working here as a good start for a career that can eventually lead to greener pastures. More events and groups for professionals are emerging around Australia, helping new expats connect with more well-known, successful businesspeople.

Live

Famous for its luring culture, beautiful shores, and sunny climate, many expats move to make a new home in the “Land Down Under.” European expats moving to Australia generally say that living in Australia is relatively expensive. Still, people flock to the country because of its many benefits.
Topping the best reasons for opting to live in Australia exists its universal health care system. So, expats moving to Australia can receive first-class health care. In contrast, permanent residents receive medical care for free, if not at meager costs. If expats want to get citizenship, they must reside in Australia for a minimum of four years, besides passing the citizenship test. The standard yearly pay in the country is around $64,000 or 91,550 AUD, which stands a bit better than in other countries.
The east side of Australia, primarily Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, and Brisbane, stays as the chosen destination of white-collar professionals who prefer a cosmopolitan lifestyle.

Experience

If you’re moving to Australia, there’s stuff about life that you should be aware of. Aussie culture remains beyond beer, hot weather, and barbecues. In fact, Australia is a country of genuine diversity, where people can surf and ski in one day. Everything is colorful. From its wildlife to its weather, living in Australia is always exciting and slightly dangerous.

It’s a spot on earth where people will get different experiences unless they are together at all times. Perhaps, this is why the country is also sometimes called Oz. Also, it’s the home of several of the world’s most unique wildlife. Expats moving to Australia can easily keep themselves busy by seeing the Outback sights to look for wallabies, kangaroos, koalas, and emus, to name a few.

Help

It’s common knowledge that more than 25% of Australia’s population are foreigners. And perhaps, this is because of the many support groups that help people settle in the country. This consists of community and religious groups, churches, sports clubs, and migrant groups.

Even state and territory support networks, charities, some businesses, and online support and meetup groups, provide ongoing help for people moving to Australia. Check out these helpful links:
