Australia is a lucky country with good employment rates, economic growth and stability, high living standards, world-class education, and social security. It is a land rich with Indigenous culture, full of unique native fauna, breath-taking flora, diverse natural landscapes, and vibrant city life. Australia also has low poverty rates, comprehensive healthcare, and no wars or major conflicts, a life denied to many.

By the end of the financial year 2019, over 7.5-million migrants were residing in Australia, and 29.7% of Australia’s population had been born overseas. Modern Australia is a vibrant young nation built on immigration and multicultural diversity. It is no wonder that Australia ranks in the top four countries to be an immigrant and is in the top 20 places to live in the world.

Since 2003, the passionate and caring team here at Visa to Australia has helped international peoples worldwide work, live, study, and travel in Australia with comprehensive and successful immigration and visa applications services.
