Episode Summary:

Australia’s migration program was introduced to the world in 1994. Since then it has become home to millions of people from around the world who have moved here to play their trade and a better & safer future. There are now, as a proportion of the population, more people living in Australia who were born overseas than at any other time in the last 130 years.

A fairly large number of highly skilled migrants are drawn to the land down under. But many struggle to navigate the vast landscape of the every changing and complex migration system. Applicants applying for a visa struggle with the PR process: lodging an Expression of Interest, Skills Assessment, English Language Proficiency Tests etc.

In this episode Amitava answers the most frequently asked questions about the PR process. We cover a range of topics that cover many visa FAQs: lodging EOI, skills assessment, IELTS, bringing spouse or partner into the country, living and working in regional areas, getting sponsored by an employer in Australia, business investment for a pathway to PR and more.

If you are considering moving to Australia as a student, skilled worker, business owner, or investor and would like to understand the various pathways available for permanent residence, then think of this podcast as a primer for it. It clearly delineates the migration program and Amitava shares his valuable insights about it as a registered MARA agent.
