  Attention: All information in this topic is to be taken as a guide only and may be outdated. The Department of Immigration of Australia, constantly modify and update the rules for most types of Visas. For actual and correct information, please consult the official website of the Department of Immigration.

In Australia there is a law that says that nobody besides the Immigration Department itself or a registered Immigration Agent can charge money to provide services for someone who wishes to migrate to Australia. This law was very welcome because before it, unscrupulous people abused the good fait of prospective immigrants with promises never to become true. Now on with this law, Immigration Agents must be registered, do a course and abide by a code of Ethics, which is a guarantee and tranquillity for future migrants.

There are some rules for international students wanting to apply for General Skilled Migration and get some points must have  completed a course in Australia Vocational or University before being eligible for an application. But rules of the number of years and the type of courses have changed a lot and better check the immigration website or a immigration agent.. Note also that each profession receives different amount of points according to the list the Immigration Department called "Skilled Occupation List"

Regional Australia- when you study and live in cities localized in areas called Regional Australia may give you extra points for an Immigration. Regional Australia is considered all the cities of Australia except Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong, New South Wales Central Coast, Perth and Canberra. Adelaide is the only capital in this list.

There are many categories to apply for Immigration for example, Business Category for people who want to invest in Australia, by purchasing a Business or opening a new one. In this case, the government stipulates a minimum amount of investment and the business must not only provide the owner living, but must also be able to employ a certain number of Australians. This also varies from city to city.

Only 5 years after living in Australia the Immigration Department may concedes the right for applicant to apply for Australia Citizenship. With the Citizenship, the migrant is granted the plain use of all social benefits and can vote.

Note: The total cost of the process to migrate to Australia can be over A$ 5.000, not including medical exams, translations and certification of documents, English tests, and others. Usually the entire process may take 6 months to one year to be completed, but it all depends on how busy the Immigration officers, how your documents were listed and prepared, the chosen career and even if it was organized or note by an immigration agent .


Good Luck!
