How to Become an Australian Permanent Resident

Migrating to Australia from Singapore

If you desire to emigrate to Australia, then you would need a “legal entry permit” by way of an Australian PR visa.

Australia is considered by many as one of the best countries to live in. A politically stable, English-speaking country of fantastic natural beauty, its well-rounded education system and abundant work opportunities, and a top-notch healthcare system can only be enjoyed by citizens and permanent residents.

Of the thousands of applications, Australian authorities abide by a complex set of legislative criteria tuned to the needs of the country, economy, and society to award permanent residency only to those who have met all criteria.

Australia’s skilled Migration program attracts skilled, highly qualified individuals from across the world offering successful applicants permanent residency. However, obtaining your Australian PR visa can sometimes be a painstaking and arduous, and daunting task.

The complexity of the visa application process may be briefly summarised through these popular programs:

1. General Skilled Migration

Unless you already have sponsorship by an onshore employer, you would typically need to have qualifications and work experience in sought-after skills to qualify. It’s a point-tested system where eligible applicants will be selected from a pool of applicants and invited to apply. Popular visa subclass under this program includes subclasses 189, 190, and 491.

The above are but some popular pathways but many other programs may potentially lead to residency.
