Why Migrate to Australia: Top 7 reasons to start your move after the pandemic
Australia has been one the most successful countries in the world in managing the Covid-19 pandemic – there were only 104 deaths by the end of June 2020. Local lockdown measures have been significantly reduced and the economy is slowly coming back to life. The Australian Government has already announced numerous stimulus packages and brought forward construction projects to create more jobs opportunities. The Government has also revealed a national ‘Technology Investment Roadmap’ to spur economic activity in the aftermath of the pandemic.
Australian visas continue to be processed, so it is still possible to apply. It can take over six months to apply for a visa to live and work in Australia. Despite the present border closures, you still have the choice to start your research and planning now. Given the current dire situation that many other countries are in, the demand for migrating to Australia is likely to be extremely high when the country does reopen.
1) Free or Subsidised Health Care from some of the World’s Best Hospitals
The Medicare system in Australia provides access to a wide range of health care services, including free medical care in public hospitals and lower costs for prescription medicines. All Australian citizens, eligible Australian residents and certain visa categories can access these services after enrolling in Medicare.
For eligible patients, Medicare in Australia covers:
- Subsidised or free treatment by health professionals such as specialists, doctors, optometrists, and in specific circumstances other allied health practitioners such as dentists.
- Free accommodation and treatment in a public hospital for public Medicare patients.
For private patients in a private or public hospital, 75 per cent of the Medicare Schedule fee for procedures and services.
2) Free or Subsidised Education
The Australian education system provides free or subsidised primary, secondary and tertiary education. The Australian public education system has a good reputation for its high volume of students and quality teaching methods. It should be noted that the Australian Education system is valued for its emphasis on student participation in extra-curricular activities and focus on student interaction and learning collaboration. It is a more holistic-based system compared to education systems in various parts of Asia for example. While English is the main language of instruction in the Australian education system, many schools offer programs in other languages, including bilingual and exchange programs.
3) The Weather and Climate
Australia is an attractive migration destination because of its temperate weather on most of the East coast. All four seasons can be found on the Australian east coast region. With the tropical climate in the Northern region as well as the snowy blue mountains in the South. The Central region of Australia displays the iconic ‘outback’ with the vast terrain of red sandy desert and mountain ranges. There is also the Western coastline that is known for its turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, and temperate climate.
4) Pathway to Citizenship
All permanent residents can eventually qualify to become an Australian citizen. A big advantage for migrants moving to Australia is the fact that the Government recognises dual citizenship. Children born to permanent residents in Australia can apply for citizenship even if their parents do not yet qualify.
5) Liveable Cities
The Economist newspaper runs a survey every year to rank the most liveable cities in the world. According to these surveys, multiple Australian cities are consistently featured on the list every year as some of the best cities to live in the world. Among them, Melbourne frequently occupies a top position in the ranking, and was most notably given the winning spot in 2017.
6) Australia is a land of migrants
Due to its longstanding, nation-building immigration program, Australia is the true definition of multicultural. A significant portion of the Australian population were either born overseas or have a parent that is not an Australian citizen by birth. This contributes to the immensely diverse cultural practices across the country. You will fit right in!
The Australian economy is solid, and the Australian dollar has the reputation of being one of the strongest and safest currencies in the world. It is no surprise that Australia features so highly on this index as we deliver high wages, a great work/life balance, low crime rates, inclusive healthcare systems and an economy that has easily weathered the storms of past recessions. This allows anyone with a paid job to be able to afford accommodation and food regardless if they are working in a restaurant, retail outlet or if they are a professional.
