Thousands of people each year choose immigration to Australia to secure a better life for themselves and their families.
From 2009 to 2019, the average number of migrant arrivals was 493,000 per year. The COVID pandemic decreased the number of arrivals, but in 2021 more than 100,000 people arrived in Australia again.
It’s no surprise that so many migrants choose Australia. It consistently ranks as one of the best countries to live in the world.
That’s thanks to Australia being family-friendly and safe, offering excellent employment opportunities, having well-developed public education and health systems, and having some of the best universities in the world.

Australia has various visas and immigration pathways that provide temporary and permanent residence.
There are also visas for visitors who want to come to Australia for a short time, such as tourists and business travellers.
Intergate Emigration assists with the following visas and immigration pathways:
The Business Innovation and Investment Visa lets migrants own and manage a new or existing business, conduct business and investment activity in Australia, or carry out entrepreneurial activities in Australia.
Partner Visas lets the de facto partners and spouses of Australians and eligible New Zealand citizens live in Australia temporarily or permanently or travel to Australia to marry their prospective Australian spouse.
Visas for Returning Residents are for Australians who’d like to live in Australia after being absent from the country for an extended period and eligible permanent residents and citizens without valid travel validities.
Let’s take a closer look at immigration to Australia:
Australia’s immigration requirements are visa-specific.
For example, to apply for a Skilled Independent Visa, applicants must be under 45 and work in an occupation on a skilled occupation list, or to apply for a Partner Visa, the applicant must have a spouse or de facto partner who’s an Australian or eligible New Zealander.
However, some requirements are universal. For example, all visa applicants must meet Australia’s health and character requirements.
Please see our website for each visa’s requirements or book a consultation call with our licensed advisor to discuss the criteria for immigration.
While the immigration application process is visa-specific, migrants can expect the following:
Hopeful migrants can determine their eligibility to immigrate to Australia by completing an assessment with a licensed immigration advisor.
While there are free online assessments available, these aren’t reliable. Online assessments don’t ask all the questions they should and aren’t always up to date on the latest immigration regulations.
People who want to live and work in Australia can immigrate without a job offer - provided they get enough points to apply for a work visa and subsequently get a visa before departing to Australia. A work visa is necessary to enter and stay in Australia legally.
It is possible to move to Australia if you’re over 50, although migrants over 50 have fewer visa options. These visa options are as follows:
Some Australian visas require sponsorship, while others don’t. Whether an applicant needs sponsorship to immigrate to Australia will depend on the visa they qualify for.
