10 Great Reasons to Emigrate to Australia

Australia remains a firm favourite when it comes to migrant workers. From the glorious long hours of sunshine to the slightly lesser known employment opportunities. If you’re considering applying for a skilled visa for Australia so you can live and work in one of the most diverse and prosperous countries on earth, then take a look at our top 10 reasons for emigrating to Australia.

The Weather

Is the cold, cloudy, rainy climate of your home country getting you down? Moving to Australia will allow you to enjoy mild, temperate weather throughout the year with plenty of hot, sunny summer days. Even coastal cities such as Melbourne, Sydney and Perth get very hot in the summer – so it’s a good job you are close to the beach for a refreshing swim in the sea.

Work Opportunities in Australia

Boasting the twin benefits of a low unemployment rate and a relatively strong economy, Australia also has some of the best working conditions in the world. A high minimum wage and typically competitive overtime rates are other factors to take into consideration if you are contemplating applying for a Skilled Working Visa to Australia.

Beautiful Unspoilt Landscapes

Nature lovers rejoice! With over 500 national parks and over a dozen world heritage sites to explore, Australia is a haven for lovers of scenic grandeur and the natural world. Highlights include Kakadu, Karijini, Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Litchfield and Lamington National Parks. Expect a diverse range of beaches, canyons, creeks, waterfalls and lush forests to marvel at during holidays or weekends away from the city.

Low Pollution Levels

Australia is renowned for its clean, fresh air. By global standards, Australia has some of the lowest air pollution levels in the world– a breath of fresh air indeed!

Multi-Cultural Society

Australia is proud of its diversity – this is reflected in the fact that an annual celebration called Harmony Day is held on the 21st of March. The country is a great place to learn more about the customs and foods of different cultures.

It's the Third Least Densely Populated Country in the World

With a population density of just 2.91 per square kilometre, Australia is one of the least densely populated countries in the entire world. This is great for the environment and means there are more resources available for everyone as well as plenty of jobs available for skilled migrant workers.

Excellent Healthcare

All citizens are granted basic healthcare via Medicare and there are also private options available as well, affording you plenty of choice should you need it.

Laid-back lifestyle

Australians are preceded by a reputation for being extremely chilled out and laid-back. Strangers are more sociable with one another compared to other countries and Australia also enjoys a relatively low crime rate.

Opportunities for Students

If you aren't quite ready to apply for an Australian working visa, that's no reason to rule out moving over. The country boasts a vast number of options for students from around the globe with the third highest amount of international students in the world.

Ideal for Travelling

Last but not least, Australia is great for travel. As it's such an expansive country there is a lot to see and do from the awe-inspiring landscapes of the Australian outback to the vibrant and multicultural cities such as Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane. If you are planning skilled migration to Australia, it's definitely worth factoring in some time to travel before you begin your new job.

What Our Clients Say

  • Thanks so much for all of your help and support with my application. Everyone there has been so responsive every time we’ve contacted you, it really does make a difference. I should refer our estate agent back in Edinburgh to you for some tips on customer communication! And we certainly would recommend to anyone thinking of making the move to contact the team at OE.
    – James Cooke, New Zealand
  • We have arrived in Brisbane safely, goods and all!! Been here since September and loving it so far. Thankfully our house was not damaged in anyway by the floods, although we have been involved in Volunteering to help clean up after the floods (that was an experience!). Thanks again.
    – Elaine, Kevin and Kim Lawrence, Brisbane, Australia
  • They explained each process of the application and kept us up-to-date on what was happening at each stage; telling us when we needed to be doing things and in what order – they made the whole process very straight forward.

  • Thank you so so much and everybody at OE for everything. We are over the moon! We are all in shock and there are tears! Thank you again.
    – Warren Baldwin-Jones, Canada
  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia
  • Our emigration to Australia is going great so far thanks. Thank you for all your help.
