With a high standard of living and balanced lifestyle backed by a strong economy and scenic landscaping, Australia is the choice of migration compared to other countries. People migrate to Australia to have a better life. Before doing that, you need to apply for the Permanent Residency (PR) visa in order to be granted a right to live, work and study without limitation in Australia. Having said that, let us evaluate the benefits of becoming a Permanent Resident in Australia.

1. As a permanent resident, you will be given a permanent visa. This entitles you to the right to live in Australia indefinitely. You can enjoy the facilities of unlimited travel to and from Australia once you become a permanent resident. However, initially the permanent visa is given for a period of five years and has to be applied again from either outside Australia or from within the country.

2. On procuring permanent resident ship, you also enjoy unlimited freedom to pursue the course of study that you prefer. Permanent residents have various options to choose when it comes to University education. There are certain education loans that are available only to permanent residents. These loans are extremely helpful in managing your financial crisis that may arise due to the additional expenses associated with your study.

3. The next important aspect of permanent residence is regarding work permit. Working in Australia becomes easier with a Permanent Resident Visa. Permanent residents can work for any employer in any occupation. But, working in the Public Service or Armed forces is strictly restricted to the Australian Citizens. This, however, does not distinguish the industrial laws between the permanent residents and citizens. Permanent residents enjoy the same benefits under these laws as the citizens. They can become a part of trade unions and can claim worker’s compensation.

4. As regards to social security, the permanent residents must hold on for a period of two years before they are entitled to receive social security benefits like sickness, unemployment and student benefits that are offered by Australia’s Social Security Department.

5. An important benefit that the permanent residents will enjoy is the health care entitlement. As a permanent resident of Australia, you will enjoy the privilege of health insurance scheme run by the government called Medicare. Under Medicare, you could receive free treatment at a public hospital and subsidized medicine.

6. Permanent residents can also sponsor their relatives for acquisition of permanent residence. But this is possible only after the applicant meets certain residence and support assurance pre-requisites.

7. Children of permanent residents who are born in Australia are deemed Australian citizens by birth. This will be one great advantage because they will enjoy the maximum benefits in the field of education and health care.

8. Permanent residents have the right to take up some professions in Australia like that of a migration agent or any government position.

9. The permanent resident of Australia is also granted the right to travel to New Zealand and apply for a New Zealand Visa. This is a provision that has been granted by the government of New Zealand.

10. The permanent resident of Australia has the right to apply for Australian consular assistance overseas when things get a little rough abroad.

Of course there are a number of formalities and criteria to be fulfilled to be considered a Permanent Resident of Australia such as Visa Application, and so forth. The benefits above are the driving force why people are increasing considering Australia migration as their first choice. In a recent report by ‘The Advertiser’, a local Adelaide’s tabloid, it says that Australia is the ultimate destination for any immigrant looking to settle down as it provides everything one can ask for.

The melting pot down under, Australia is an exceptional country to settle down. Ranked by the United Nations as the second-best country in the world for its quality of life, Australia unceasingly attracts international skilled workers to migrate and to make their dreams realized.

If you are wondering how permanent residency in Australia can impact your life in Australia, we have listed down the privileges of permanent residents (PRs):

Being on a permanent resident visa entitles you to travel in and out of Australia for unlimited times. But do take note that your introductory PR visa is valid for a 5-year duration. Nevertheless, you are eligible to renew for this visa before its expiry date. Where you travel overseas and return to Australia after your permanent residency expired, you will need to obtain a five-year Resident Return Visa (RRV) to renew your permanent residence.

Once on PR status, you may choose any occupation that you are interested in and you are allowed to work with no restrictions. However, exceptions do apply for work types such as Public service or Armed forces. Only Australian citizens can apply for the jobs that fall under these two sectors.

You may sponsor your family members for an acquisition of permanent residence but only after you met the residence and support assurance prerequisites.

Your credit rating as an Australian Permanent Resident will promptly rise enabling you to gain approval easier on personal loans, car loans, home loans, credit cards, and so on.

You will be eligible for the FHOG (First Home Owner Grant) worth $10,000 if you signed your contract on or after 1 July 2013 on your first house acquisition. Your new home can be an apartment, unit, house, townhouse, or similar which costs at $750,000 or less and it must be the first sale of the property as a residential address.

The Higher Education Support Act 2003 dictates that Australian citizens and permanent visa holders are given the privilege of receiving assistance financially on their study through the Higher Education Loans Program (HELP). This is helpful for you if ever faced by financial crisis while you are studying.

One of the greatest benefits of becoming a PR is felt when your children are born in Australia as they will be deemed automatically as Australian citizens by birth. In essence, they will be provided with utmost benefits in the field of education and health care.

An all-inclusive Medicare health coverage will be available for you as a PR which grants you cheaper health insurance, free treatment at public hospitals, and subsidized medicine.

After two years of settling down in Australia as a permanent resident, a master program by Australia’s Social Security Department, widely known as Centrelink, will provide you social welfare aids associated with student, sickness, and unemployment which can be extended to your family.

Permanent residence acquired after 1 July 2007 may be qualified to apply for Australian citizenship if you have lived lawfully in Australia for at least 4 years and have lived in Australia for at least 12 months as a permanent resident.
