How to Stay in Australia Permanently
The nearest equivalent to the US Green Card Australia offers is known as permanent residence. Many overseas nationals who come to work, conduct business, or study on temporary and provisional Australian visas will become eligible for permanent residence after they have fulfilled the residency requirements. This often requires you to stay in Australia for a set period of time.
There are a number of different immigration pathways to becoming a permanent resident in Australia. Our staff are fully-trained to advise on individual cases and ensure that you have selected the correct avenue for your circumstances. Your options include:
- General Skilled Migration - this option is best for people who are aged 18-45 and do not have a sponsoring employer
- Employer Nomination Scheme - this option is often the best route for our clients who have taken the International Employment Preparation Service and have a job offer from a sponsoring Australian employer
- Regional Sponsored Nomination Scheme - this option is for people who have been nominated for a full-time position
- Business Development - if you moved to Australia for business development or investment, this may be the best immigration pathway
All of these options have a minimum time that you must live in Australia before applying for permanent residency. The experts and migration agents at IXP Visas are fully qualified to help you with all your questions on long-term immigration, Australian permanent residence and the different types of visas available.
Rashid's Australian Immigration Success with IXP
Rashid had worked in Australia for 3 and a half years, and wanted to become a permanent resident.
"Life in Australia is everything that I hoped for - for the first few months I couldn't believe my luck but now I'm completely settled here and never want to leave! But after living here and calling it home for years it's a bit strange to be having to go through the paperwork of visas and various applications all over again. When I started researching it, it all seemed so unstable and I was worried that if I did it wrong I wouldn't be able to stay.
I went through IXP Visas when I made my first visa application, and remember how thoroughly they handled everything. It's not something I wanted to mess up - it's the rest of my life here - so I wanted to work with them again and make sure everything was handled properly. Just getting their call back and knowing that they were going to work on it was reassuring! Now I'm an Australian permanent resident, and couldn't be happier. Now I'm just looking forward to becoming a full Australian citizen and I will consider my immigration truly complete."
