With striking landscape and rich in ancient culture, Australia is the world’s sixth-largest country in land area and is the only nation to govern an entire continent. Because of its spectacular environment, strong economy, high quality of life and great diversity, Australia has become one of the most popular relocation destinations for expats from around the globe. This vast and varied country is home to many World Heritage sites including the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the Sydney Opera House. Major capital cities Sydney and Melbourne are continuously ranked amongst the world’s best cities to live in and are the primary destination for expats moving to Australia.
Visa and immigration

For citizens of other countries, there are a number of visa categories that can be applied for subject to meeting all regulations set forward by the Australian Government.

It is a country of endless potential with foreign and trade policy that promote its security and long-term prosperity.
