This is a big deal!

One of the biggest advantages of getting an Australian PR is that you can live, work, and study in Australia forever!

Initially, your PR visa is only valid for a 5-year duration. but, you can surely renew it after this period.

As a permanent resident in Australia, you can choose any occupation you are interested in and you're allowed to work in any industry you wish with absolutely no restrictions.

However, exceptions do apply for work types such as public service or armed forces which are only applicable to Australian citizens.


Being on a permanent resident visa entitles you to travel in and out of Australia without constraints.

However, when you travel overseas and return to Australia after your permanent residency expires, you will need to obtain a five-year resident return visa (RRV) to renew your permanent residence.

One of the best advantages of becoming a permanent resident of Australia is that it puts you on the pathway to becoming an Australian citizen according to the latest Henley passport index, the Australian passport is said to be the 9th strongest passport in the world with access to 185 visa-free destinations.


Healthcare is probably one of the most important things to be considered when deciding to settle in a whole new country.

And Australia's healthcare system comes across as one of the finest and the most comprehensive medical setup and is known to be one of the best in the world.

In general, hospital bills & treatments in Australia can be a little expensive however, as a permanent resident in Australia, you are entitled to free healthcare services with the help of medicare.


It is an all-inclusive healthcare scheme that grants Australians access to a wide range of health and public hospital services at a low or no cost.

Medicare typically covers:

  • Seeing a GP or specialist,
  • Tests and scans, like x-rays
  • Most surgery and procedures performed by doctors
  • And eye tests by optometrists.

Additionally, you could also choose to only have a medicare cover

or to also have private health insurance as well.


Two years after emigrating to Australia, you build the eligibility to also sponsor your family members for the acquisition of a PR

However, this is applicable only after you meet the residence and support assurance pre-requisites.

Okay, this one's crucial and is eligible for only those who have been a PR in Australia for at least two years. The government extends its support to those in difficult situations with a range of social security benefits to keep them afloat until they find a solid base for themselves financially in the country. Under the Australian social security system, the eligibility for the benefits is based on the individual's health, employment, education, and financial needs. A master's program by Australia's social security department, widely known as Centrelink, will provide you with social welfare, aids associated with students, sickness, and unemployment which can also be extended to your family.

If you are an Australian PR, you will be considered a domestic student, as per the "higher education support act 2003" Australian citizens and permanent visa holders are given the privilege of receiving financial assistance for their studies by the government. through the higher education loans program called 'help'. this is particularly beneficial if you ever face a financial crunch while applying for your higher studies as an Australian PR student as the international student fees are higher than the domestic fees
