If you’re thinking about applying for a PR (Permanent residency) in Australia, don’t give up. It’s a fantastic idea for your future. We’ll explain why.

Australian PR for International Students

Australia is consistently ranked as one of the most desirable and livable countries in the world, due largely to its high human development index and high quality of life. Australia is a country of personal and professional opportunities, with a universal healthcare system, a high-quality educational system, world-renowned scenery, and a pleasant climate. It should come as no surprise that Australia attracts a large number of migrants and skilled workers seeking to live in one of the world’s most multicultural and open-minded countries.

Australia has been one of the most sought-after study-abroad destinations for students from all over the world. Thus, Australia has become a melting pot of cultures, attracting some of the best minds from around the world and propelling it into the twenty-first century.

If you want to study in Australia or are already on a student visa there, becoming a Permanent Resident in Australia is something you should think about. Let’s take a look at the advantages of becoming a Permanent Resident in Australia.

Benefits of Getting a Permanent Residency (PR) in Australia are:

1. Remain Indefinitely in Australia

Applicants who apply for Australian PR are granted the right to live in Australia for an indefinite period of time. Although the permanent visa is only granted for 5 years, you can continue to renew your permanent visa for another five years each time it expires.

Australian PR has a limited period of validity after which it expires; however, if candidates wish to stay in Australia longer, they can renew their visas. In order to maintain their Australian PR Visa after it expires while traveling abroad, applicants can renew their visa by applying for a five-year Resident Return Visa (RRV).

2. Work anywhere you want in Australia

Australian permanent residents are permitted to work in any region of Australia, in any chosen occupation, and for any employer. They are free to work and have the same rights as an Australian citizen. In comparison to other countries, Australia’s industrial laws are very smooth and simple to follow.

3. Pursue your studies in Australia

If you are a permanent resident of Australia, you will be considered a domestic student. According to the “HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPORT ACT 2003,” Australian citizens and permanent visa holders have the option of receiving financial aid for their studies from the government through the Higher Education Loans Program known as ‘HELP.’

This is especially useful if you run into financial difficulties while applying for higher education as an Australian PR student. As Nepalese or any other international students’ fees are much higher than domestic fees, the PR visa allows you to save a significant amount of money. It is much easier for students to apply for student loans through ‘HELP’ and pay them back only after graduating and getting a job.

4. Enroll in Australia’s national health scheme, Medicare

In general hospital bills and medical care in Australia is quite expensive. Australian citizens have the right to healthcare. As a permanent resident of Australia, you have access to government-run health insurance programs known as ‘Medicare,’ which provide free medical treatment at subsidized prices in government-run pharmacies and hospitals. Typically, Medicare policies cover the following:

  • Consultation with a primary care physician or a specialist
  • Tests and scans, such as x-rays
  • The majority of surgeries and medical procedures
  • Optometrists (perform eye exams)

Furthermore, as a PR, you have the option of having Medicare coverage or opting for a more comprehensive private health insurance policy.

5. Sponsor eligible relatives for Permanent Residence

You will be able to sponsor your family members for a Permanent Residency in Australia two years after emigrating to the country. However, keep in mind that this is subject to meeting the Australian government’s prerequisite conditions.

The best part about being a Permanent Resident in Australia is that if you end up having children in the country, they will automatically become Australian citizens by birth, entitling you to a plethora of government benefits.

6. Apply for Australian Citizenship

If you obtained permanent residence after July 1, 2007, you may be eligible to apply for citizenship, as well as if you have lived lawfully in Australia for at least 4 years and for at least 12 months as a permanent resident.

This comes with additional benefits to permanent residencies, such as the right to vote, easy travel and re-entry, government and defense jobs, deportation protection, and access to one of the world’s strongest passports. The Australian passport is one of the most powerful passports available, allowing visa-free travel to approximately 181 countries.

7. A boost to your credit rating

As a permanent resident of Australia, your credit score will quickly improve, allowing you to easily obtain approval for personal loans, car loans, home loans, and credit cards. Not only will you get faster approvals, but your interest rates will also decrease as your credit score improves, so you will pay a lot less out of pocket when you repay your loans. Plus, Permanent residents will be qualified for a $10,000 First Home Owners Grant, which can be used to buy your first house, apartment, unit, or townhouse worth $750,000 or less.

These are just a few of the significant advantages you will enjoy if you are granted the status of Australian Permanent Resident. However, achieving this status is not always easy, and it may take years, but with these long-term benefits in mind, many people are willing to go the extra mile.

Many people wish to obtain permanent residency in Australia, and there are several options available. To migrate to Australia, skilled immigrants must first pass a point-based system in which they must meet the minimum required score in areas such as education, age, work experience, and language proficiency.
