Take the time, resources, knowledge required for a successful immigration process into consideration.

What is more difficult, to get Permanent Residence Visa in Australia or in Canada?

Australia and Canada are well known for their immigration programs and high standards of living and resources provided to assist new migrants’ assimilation into their new communities. However, the current immigration process to Australia is considered more restrictive than Canada. Australia places more scrutiny on the migrants’ ability to integrate into local society and gauges their chances of success in current labour market. It is not possible to accurately measure and compare the migration processes of one country with another as each country targets specific types of skills and migrants. Please keep in mind that required processes of each country changes on a regular basis.

What is ‘sponsorship’?

Sponsorship is defined as the undertaking of applicant for an Australian visa by an Australian Permanent Resident or Australian Citizen. The sponsor is responsible for specified commitments to an applicant for a visa, such as provision of accommodation or financial assistance to correspond with his or her arrival, in the event that a visa is granted. Different visas entail different commitments to different parties. For example, under the Employer Nominated Scheme, an employer is required to provide evidence that the applicant is able to contribute highly sought after skills that is hardly available locally.

What is Skills Assessments?

To apply for General Skills migration, it is required that you put forth your skills and experiences gained (qualifications and work experience) to be assessed by the appropriate Skills Assessment Bodies to justify your nominated occupation.

How long would it take before I can get a PR status?

After completing a complimentary Official Assessment with Worldlink Business Consultants, we will provide a comprehensive response to cater to your specific case. This is due to the varying processing times allocated by government bodies to different visas. For example, for Australian offshore applications, it could take anywhere from 1 ½  to 3 years. The time required for a successful application highly depends on the priority processing currently practiced by DIAC. Please contact us for a more comprehensive explanation.
