Australia! It seems like a really far away country and to be honest, it is! But its people, culture and landscapes make it worth visiting at least once in your life. Moving to Australia from the UK, it’s relatively easy as Brits have access to different visas such as Work and Holiday Visa or Tourist visas for short-term stays, Student Visas or Work Visas if you are looking to explore more of the country or Skilled Migration or partner visas if you want to move to Australia permanently.
Here are the top 4 reasons we believe you need to move to Australia
1. Quality of life
With a low population level of 26 million compared to 66 million in the UK, low pollution levels but plenty of fresh air – plus some fantastic natural landscapes and beautiful scenery to indulge the senses, these are just some of the reasons that so many expats choose this country as their home. Australians are known for their laid-back lifestyle and as a British Expat of ten years, I myself have also embraced this incredible work- life- balance.
Casual calm parties, community gatherings in a variety of locations that celebrate our diversity and family picnics are important parts of Australian life and it should be a top priority for most people – there is no point earning a living if you can’t enjoy the view or spend it with your nearest and dearest – simple pleasures like a BBQ on the beach (no shrimps!) or a Sunday stroll in the hinterland to find the waterfalls – this is what living is about!
2. Great healthcare system
The healthcare system in Australia is known as one of the best in the world as it covers the hospitalization and medical payments of the citizens in public hospitals. This is free via Medicare and excels in standard and investments in comparison to the funding equivalent of the NHS. Medicare also have reciprocal agreements in place with certain countries, so visitors can access Medicare if needed. Another huge benefit to consider!
3. Low air pollution and fantastic weather
With less air pollution, Australia offers a great and healthy environment for residents and travellers unlike other countries, which have a high level of pollution. In terms of weather – Depending on which state you choose will determine the overall climate, for example, Queensland has two seasons – a pleasant spring and a humid summer – I do remember experiencing a Queensland winter though, last year it was on a Tuesday!
4. High-quality educational system
Australia also includes a fantastic higher education system and it has bagged 8th position in the worldwide rankings. Actually, this country includes numerous reputable universities and schools. You can come to study here and have a pathway to permanent residency or at least access to a work visa.
