Australia is one of the most attractive countries in terms of immigration. But the desire to connect your life with this distant country is not enough, even though Australia was formed as a country of immigrants and still remains to some extent.
Today there are three reasons for immigration to Australia - professional, family and humanitarian. The latter concerns mainly refugees. Like any state, Australia is deeply interested in the influx of qualified specialists from other countries who do not need additional training and are ready to start working as soon as possible.
Applicants for moving to Australia, in addition to a diploma, must have experience in the specialty and have a good knowledge of the state language. The age of immigrants is determined from 18 to 45 years old. When preparing for immigration, you should study the Australian labor market well in order to more clearly define your future specialty.
There are two immigration lists - for the independent and sponsored categories. It is imperative that you familiarize yourself with them and assess your possible chances. Family immigration aims to reunite with relatives who already have Australian citizenship. It concerns, first of all, parents, children, spouses and brides. When registering documents for entry, it will be necessary to present a certificate of sponsor's income in the host country.
According to family immigration programs, it is possible to obtain a temporary marriage visa, spousal, parental and child visa. The conditions for obtaining each type of visa are stipulated by Australian law. For those living in Australia for more than four years, there is an independent immigration program, which gives the opportunity to obtain a full permanent visa and the right to unlimited stay in Australia with the prospect of obtaining citizenship. The option of humanitarian immigration is the most difficult, since it will be necessary to prove to the immigration authorities that further stay in the country of origin poses a threat to the life and health of the immigrant.
