Australia is a country of migrants. As Australia is the fourth happiest country in the world (Prosperity Index 2012), you are sure to enjoy your time here. Australia is admired for its cultural diversity, personal freedom, education system, natural beauty and career opportunities. This is a favorite destination not only for students who want to study abroad, but also for professionals from different fields, researchers, teachers and many more.
According to Australian Bureau of Statistics (abs.gov.au), more people immigrate to, than emigrate from, Australia. New Census data (2011) has revealed that almost a quarter (24.6 per cent) of Australia’s population was born overseas and 43.1 per cent of people have at least one overseas-born parent. This reflects cultures diversity and people adapting to this diversity. Australia gives a platform for migrants to live, enjoy, work and grow.
In short, Australia is a dream land where opportunities are endless. However, to migrate to a country like Australia is a not an easy task. The first step after deciding to migrate to Australia, is finding the right visa option from the vast array of visa subclasses. This step on its own is perplexing though there are official government sites available with the required information. Here is where you might need the guidance from the experts. We, at Rights & Associates value customer’s need and give you comprehensive guidance through the entire process of permanent residency application. Even though applicants can apply for any of the available visas by themselves, getting help from registered migration agent is recommended. As the visa application process is very complicated, a slight mistake can lead to unwanted hassle or in the worst case scenario, it may result into visa rejection. We have more than 95% of success rate and we have assisted over 10,000 applicants including students, professionals and their family members.
