That’s the easy part, the difficulties arise in trying to figure out how to move to Australia and which visas to choose or apply for. Key factors are understanding that each person’s case is unique.

Each of our friendly agents and lawyers are what we consider Australian visa experts as all can advise and facilitate the process of all Australian visa types:
Step 1: Choosing a Visa Pathway
Making the move to Australia is a big and exciting venture! Whatever your reasons for moving to Australia, you will have to meet specified criteria to be eligible for one of Australia’s available visas. Each visa must be submitted to the Australian Department of Border Protection and Immigration for approval. You may find you are eligible for multiple visa pathways or may need to acquire some additional criteria to qualify.
General Visa Streams:
- Visas to Work in Australia
- Visas to Study in Australia
- Visas to Invest in Australian industries, businesses or real estate
- Visas to Live with family in Australia
Mygration specialises in not only assessing which Australian visa or visas you are eligible for, but also on advising you on which visa will be the most beneficial in regards to your specific goals and on ways in which you can become eligible for a visa that you may not already qualify for. Visa applications take into consideration personal circumstances such as health, finances, assets, family situation and professional qualifications.
When you book a consultation with one of our migration agents, located in either Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne or Perth, you will need to have a basic idea of your lifestyle goals for when you are living in Australia. Questions you will need to ask yourself are:
What types of work do you expect you pursue?
You will inevitably need to find employment to live comfortably in Australia and to take advantage of all it has to offer. Things to consider are what experience you have in the larbour market and in what industry or industries? Do you have any current qualifications or skills that may be of value to Australian employers. If you are a skilled and experienced worker in a particular field you may be advised to pursue an Australian Working Visa. Australia has an occupation list that outlines particular occupations that are in need of skilled workers and if you fall into one of these occupational categories you will have a higher chance of acquiring a working visa.
Alternatively if you are a business owner looking to expand into Australia or plan to start a new business once you arrive you may be eligible for an Australian Business Visa.
Where do you want to live?
Are you intrigued by the fast-faced lifestyle of one of Australia’s capital cities or are you attracted to the easy-going lifestyle of the countryside or a small regional town? Where you hope to live and put down roots will have an effect on which visa you are eligible for. Some Australian visas are based on the condition you live and work within a particular region of the country such as regional sponsored or skilled regional visas. Due to having agents across the country, Mygration is able to put you in touch with a agent that is most-familiar with the region(s) you wish to live.
Do you wish to pursue Government nomination?
Having an Australian government nomination can greatly assist you in meeting the requirements for a visa. A Mygration agent may advise you to pursue a government nomination, which if accepted, would grant you support by the government to have your visa granted so that you can fill a particular role in the workforce that may be having difficulty finding workers locally.
Note: Government nomination is NOT a visa application; it can only assist you in meeting the requirements for Australian visas.
Do you have relatives in Australia?
If you have relatives in Australia they may be able to sponsor you. There are several categories available for family sponsored visas such as parent category, partner category or carer category.
