Moving to Australia: Gateway to a good life

  • Sharebar

If it is not convincing enough to say that Australia promises a good life to moving or settling foreigners, then two facts can definitely get the point through: first, Australia has evaded the effects of the global economic downturn in 2008; second, it was dubbed by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) as the ‘happiest developed nation’ in 2013. People looking for a country to spend their family and working life for good also have the following advantages to enjoy:

Australia, a country to go if you want a good life
High standard of living

Australia is undoubtedly among the developed countries with high standard per capita income. In fact, living standards in Australia are considered higher than that of the US or the UK, and this is said to be caused by the country’s continuing economic growth. This high standard of living is also the reason why the Department of Immigration and migration companies ensure that tourists, workers, and students are capable of funding their own travel to stay in the country for the time allowed on their visa.

Job availability

Foreigners moving to Australia can have an easier time finding employment in Australia than in some other countries as there is low unemployment. The country’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.5% (May 2013), which is lower than the 7.6% rate in the US (May 2013) and 7.8% in the UK (March 2013). Australia’s active employment status has been affected by the government’s initiative in opening more part-time jobs for both locals and foreigners. In addition, Australia’s skilled migration ensures that foreigners’ capabilities are assessed before being granted with the appropriate visa.

Easy to set up business

In Australia, people only have to find a gap in the market in order to capitalise. For instance, anyone could put up a ‘dog walking’ business in his or her neighborhood to help busy people extend care to their pets even if they are away. A dedicated business venturer has to register the business with the local government and pay for the registration fee. The business can be successful as long as ledgers are kept and taxes are paid at all times.

Good weather and climate

Depending on location and time of year, Australia offers a good mix of wet and dry season. Some parts of the eastern coast experiences snow at certain times of the year, but generally, Australia has a tropical and temperate climate. The mostly sunny days are characterised by active people bathing in beaches, walking around the city, or having barbecues in their backyards. On the whole, Australian climate encourages outdoor lifestyle. Compared to the mostly cloudy weather in the UK, Australian states have conducive weather for adventurers of all kinds.

Universal healthcare

Australia gives its citizens and permanent residents universal healthcare, which is paid for out of taxes. The country allots 8.7% of its Gross Domestic Product on healthcare services, which are available to everyone regardless of their employment status. Some healthcare programs offer coverage that includes consultations, specialists’ fees, and several tests, among others. Public hospitals offer free treatment, but Australians are also free to acquire a private health insurance to be eligible for exclusive treatment in private hospitals.

Good mass transit systems

Australians rely heavily on public transport, especially due to rising petrol prices and traffic congestion in the recent times. The country has inter-city, intra-city, inter-state, and intra-state railways systems. Buses and trams are also available. Hence, people without car can travel with ease to different parts of the country. Car owners, on the contrary, can drive for long distances without getting frustrated because of well-constructed road networks, which include federal highways, state highways, and local roads.

People looking for a new home country should consider migrating to Australia due to its promise of a good life to foreigners of all colour and creed. It is a multi-culturally diverse nation that has established laws against discrimination of all forms. The country also has a systematic migration system that protects the safety of all citizens and supports the growth of its economy.
