1 - Immigration to Australia - What is the country's geographical and cultural makeup?
The Australian environment consists of beautiful beaches, tropical rainforest, steep mountain ranges and massive amounts of desert. The country's diversity has been a large reason behind the recent surge in people moving to Australia.
With a population of over 19 million people, Australia is a multicultural society with about 5 million of its residents having immigrated to Australia from overseas. Its cities are also among the most modern and technologically advanced in the world. All major religions are represented throughout the country and immigration to Australia has brought unprecedented religious tolerance to its shores.

Immigration to Australia as a Skilled Worker is based on a point system. The following is used to evaluate the eligibility of people applying for general skilled class immigration:

Upon immigration to Australia, you will receive points for your nominated occupation after the relevant authorities have determined that your skills are suitable.

A general calculation of points accumulated for work experience can be determined as follows:
  • When nominated occupation totals 60 "Skill" points and you have worked in that occupation (or something related) for at least 3 out of the 4 years prior to application - 10 points.

  • When nominated occupation totals 40, 50 or 60 "Skill" points and you have worked in any occupation on the Skilled Occupations List for at least 3 out of the 4 years prior to application - 5 points.

Immigration to Australia points accumulated for occupations in demand/job offers

  • For occupation in demand, but no job offer - 15 points.

  • For occupation in demand, with job offer - 20 points.

  • With an Australian doctorate (which must include at least 2 years of studies in Australia): 15 points.

  • With other degrees (which must include at least 2 years of studies in Australia): 5-10 points.

  • Points for relationship - 15 points.
Pass Mark required to apply for immigration to Australia - 120 points.
3 - Immigration to Australia - How long does it take?
Applications for immigration to Australia can take up to 12-14 months to process provided there are no delays from the client's side. While favorable interviewing conditions have been known to speed up the process, it is rare that any applications are accepted in less than 1 calendar year.
4 - Immigration to Australia - Do I speak directly with the immigration offices?
Barring an interview waiver that can be granted by the immigration offices, most skilled worker applicants are interviewed to assess the accuracy of their information provided. It is here that the authorities will also generally require potential immigrants to prove that they have Aus $5,000, plus Aus $1,500 per accompanying dependant, until suitable employment is obtained. All accompanying dependents can arrive either with the principal applicant or after, as long as the expiry date on the Australian immigration visa has not passed.
5 - Immigration to Australia - How long will it take me to find a job?
While unemployment in Australia is a staggeringly low less than 7 percent, job prospects are ultimately directly linked to the immigration process and greatly depend on how well you perform in your interviewing. Taking care of administrative formalities will usually take 2-4 weeks from the time you arrive so it is best to take that into consideration when approximating your expectations. Jobs in regulated fields will also frequently require licenses and certifications that can extend the process.
There is absolutely no racial discrimination in Australia when seeking employment and immigrants are known to be treated very well by prospective employers.
6 - Immigration to Australia - How long does it take to obtain Australian citizenship?
Australian citizenship can generally be obtained after 3 years of permanent residence in Australia.
