An Australian visa is required to either travel to or live in Australia for all British citizens. The type of visa you’ll need, however, depends on the reasons for travel, and the intended duration of your stay in Australia. For those looking to move down under rather than just visiting, the visa application process can be particularly tricky.
Known for their stringent immigration policies, Australian visas are more difficult to come by than those for most other countries in the world. This isn’t helped by the fact that there are over 50 types of visa for you to choose from! The visas are split out into the following categories:
- Visitor visas
- Working and skilled migrant visas
- Study visas
- Family and spouse visas
- Other visas
With so many types of visa to choose from, and some categories being extremely similar – for example, choosing between a Working Holiday Visa and a Work and Holiday Visa – it’s imperative that you get the right immigration advice right from the beginning when you’re considering moving to Australia.
