Australian Permanent Residence:
Family members of Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or eligible New Zealand citizens can gain permanent resident status with this program.
Do it Right the First Time
A person who falls within one of the degrees of relationship to an Australian citizen or permanent resident is not automatically eligible to migrate to Australia. Eligibility for preferential family visas are closely scrutinised and highly regulated. The classes of people eligible are narrowly defined.
A large percentage of migration applications are unsuccessful. For example, offshore migration requests for 1998 - 1999 resulted in 31,525 visas refused with only 52,798 visas granted the same year (statistics provided by DIAC: family, skilled, business programs).
For the 2009-2010 Family Migration program 7,765 family visas were refused (partners, fiancés, parents, relatives not including skilled and business).
The obligations on sponsors can be heavy, too, as they can include the payment of substantial sums as bonds, which can be forfeited in certain circumstances - for example, if the visa holder relies on the Medicare or Social Security systems in Australia within the first two years of their arrival.
It is necessary to carefully examine each individual's circumstances in order to determine whether they are eligible to apply for a particular visa and their prospects of success in that application. Professional guidance is strongly recommended for this category.
In today's ever-changing, increasingly unpredictable immigration landscape, it's more important than ever to get a case done right the first time -- it's crucial to make a correct, thorough application the first time, with accurate forms, visa category and supporting documents.
Professional Help Makes a Difference
Our clients, the Orkibi's, discovered the difference professional help can make.
Here's what they have to say...
Thank you very much for your most welcome e-mail.
We would like to thank you for all the help and guidance you gave us throughout this very important matter, I'm sure things wouldn't have gone as smoothly if we had been handling it ourselves. We can now look forward to our new life "down under" and have started the process of selling our house etc.
We would definitely recommend you to any of our friends or relatives who were thinking about emigrating to Australia.
Many thanks once again
