An overview of Australian Migration

An overview of Australian Migration

The Australia Immigration Program gives individuals and families a chance to be a part of a multicultural land with breathtakingly beautiful scenery, numerous career opportunities, excellent education, healthcare, and security.

Out of 188 countries, Australia measures at #2 in the United Nations (UN) Human Development Index (HDI) (2016) which signifies the excellent healthcare, education and standard of living in Australia.

Provided you meet the criteria set out in law, Australia Immigration Programme does not discriminate on the basis of race or religion, which means anyone from any country, can apply to migrate.

Every year Australia’s cultural diversity is celebrated on Harmony Day, March 21. Harmony Day is about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.
