Emigrating to Australia?

"Destination OZ Ltd. offers genuine comprehensive migration advice and assistance at literally unbeatable prices"

So you've either decided on life in "the lucky country" or you're making initial inquiries. If you're simply thinking about it please bear the following in mind. Australia is the top destination for British migrants but it sets a very high barrier. If you have identified that you are eligible for a permanent visa you are advised to start your paperwork and get your visa lodged as soon as you can. This is due to the fact that Australian migration rules and regulations are always reviewed, lists can change, pass marks can rise and application fees are increased annually. Once an application has been received and payment taken you will not be effected by any subsequent policy shifts.

The Australian standard and quality of living is one of the highest in the world, that combined with the sunny outdoors lifestyle and great job opportunities make it one of the world's most popular destinations for those seeking a new life for themselves and their families abroad. The government of Australia welcomes and encourages new skilled and family migrants but places are limited to around 115,000 worldwide. So our advice is simple - if you qualify don't wait too long before starting your application.

It has never been more complex or expensive in terms of gaining residency to Australia and the government is constantly "tightening" the process so qualifying one day is no guarantee of qualifying the next!

If however you have long since gone past the "do we or don't we" thought process and want to make the most of your life and that of your children down under then we have compiled a collection of encouraging information and statistics for you

  • Life in Britain and to a lesser extent Ireland especially the cities can sometimes be hectic, noisy, polluted, unfriendly, and overcrowded - Australia's entire population is not much greater than that of South East England!
  • Far from suffering economic collapse like other European countries Australia enjoys a strong, stable and vibrant economy with mining and construction booms experienced – especially in WA
  • The entire population of Australia is 21 million and it's as big as the USA! Leading UK migration experts predict that the UK population could reach 70 million within 30 years !
  • Over 70% of the Australian population lives within 10 miles of the coast and within easy reach of the Pacific or Indian Oceans! The country is vibrant and young and as the saying goes "if you can't do it in Oz...You can't do it at all" The cosmopolitan, clean, uncrowded and modern cities offer a lifestyle which is the envy of the western world.
  • Australia enjoys one of the world’s best reputations for education, health provision and sport and this makes it a great place for children to grow up.
  • The Australian Tourist board once ran a series of posters with the banner headline slogan "What are you waiting for?" and it is no accident that the continent still remains the number 1 destination for British and Irish migrants. They have 5 cities listed in the world's top ten (Britain has none) and with an amazing climate, a strong and growing economy and a quality of life second to none there has never been a better time to take the step.
  • Australia experiences most climatic conditions, from tropical monsoons to hot, dry weather and snow. Generally, however, the climate is warm and temperate, particularly in the major coastal cities. This wonderful climate has resulted in a country where people and families spend a good deal of time outdoors at beaches, in the countryside or on sporting fields as either spectators or participants.
