Some Information about Getting a Permanent Residency Visa in Australia

by Arpita Shah Seo Executive

You might have seen many overseas students discussing permanent residency (PR) pathways with expert Filipino migration agents in Australia. In fact, most of the students pursuing higher education in Australia often fall in love with our beautiful country and choose to apply for a PR visa. Here are some common questions that might have occurred to you if you are an overseas student:

Who is a permanent resident of Australia?

An Australian permanent resident is a non-citizen who has a PR visa. Being a PR visa holder, you enjoy the privileges of studying, working and living in Australia without any restrictions. You are also eligible for the most of entitlements and rights that are given to Australian citizens. After becoming an Australian permanent resident, you can have access to Medicare, a nationwide healthcare scheme offered by the Australian government.

How to be an Australian permanent resident?

Every year hundreds of students apply for permanent residency in Australia after they graduate. To do so, you need to “express interest” through the Department of Home Affairs’ SkillSelect migration program. SkillSelect is nothing but an online service which makes you eligible to be considered for a skilled visa by submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI).

Applicants are required to provide personal details related to a nominated occupation, education and work experience, English language proficiency, skill assessment regarding the nominated occupations, and information about the business and investment experience.

Meanwhile, the Bridging Visa Australia will help you stay in the country when your visa is expired, and you're waiting for a decision on another visa application.

The subclass 189 (Skilled Independent Visa) is the most likely option for graduates. The visa is a points-tested visa for those skilled workers who are aged between 18 to 49 years and sponsored by an employer, a family member or nominated by a state or territory government. The visa lets you live and work in the country.

How to enhance the chances of gaining PR?

There are several ways for improving your chances of getting PR. This ranges from remaining in the country after completing your education to gaining work experience and language skills through the Temporary Graduate Visa; improving your language skills, acquiring a more advanced qualification and joining Professional Year Program.

Where to get complete information about the Australian PR visa?

Applying for permanent residency can be a bit chaotic as it involves many steps. If you want to get the most up-to-date information and make the right decision towards PR, it’s vital to seek guidance from an expert migration agent at AECC Global.
