If you’re considering relocating to Australia from the UK, US or indeed anywhere else in the world, you probably have lots of questions. Allow the team at Oreion to point you in the right direction and give you some advice about living in Australia.
Australia’s immigration rules and visas
There are various visas available for people who want to live and work in Australia, including visas for employer sponsored workers, professionals and other skilled migrants and business people. For a complete rundown of all the visa options and Australia’s immigration rules, we recommend visiting the Department of Immigration & Citizenship website, where you’ll find full details on all the options.
However, it’s worth noting that many of the people we assist in finding a job in Australia receive relocation and migration assistance from their new employers. This takes away a lot of the hassle and, often, the financial burden of migrating to Australia. Employers usually engage the services of a migration agent who will oversee the visa and migration process, so you don’t have to worry about navigating Australia’s immigration rules.
