Applying for Australian residency has many benefits, including the ability to live, work and study in Australia indefinitely, and to later apply for citizenship.

This process can be a delicate one, though, so it is important to get all of the information and take the correct steps with your application. Choosing to seek the help of professionals in this matter can only help your application process. 

Different Ways to Apply for Residency

The most common ways to acquire Australian residency is through a:

  • Family visa;
  • Business visa;
  • Worker visa; or
  • New Zealand visa

Your circumstances and history will also dictate your process of becoming an Australian resident. Seeking out the help of Australian immigration consultants can assist you with this, helping you to determine the steps that you will need to take. 

Benefits to Permanent Residency

There are many benefits to going through an Australian residency application. First and foremost, residency gives you the right to remain in the country for as long as you want, and later apply for citizenship. Depending on your visa’s travel authority, you can also generally travel internationally without issue. While you cannot vote in elections, you will have most of the other rights and entitlements of an Australian citizen.

Depending on your individual circumstances, you may be eligible for benefits including:

  • Social welfare payments
  • National health care scheme (Medicare)
  • Education
  • Migration sponsorship

It is vital to your application that you get all of your information and documents correct before you start the process. Don’t leave anything to chance or neglect any details. Trust Rex Howard & Associates to help you guide you through the residency process. Contact us today to learn more.
