Enquiry Factsheet

A brief overview of Australian residency.

The Commonwealth of Australia comprises the mainland of the Australian continent and various smaller islands. It is the world's sixth-largest country by area and the only nation governing an entire continent. Australia has a rich history as one of the pioneers in establishing democracy in the modern world. Formed in 1901, it upholds a stable, liberal, and democratic political system, consisting of six states and several territories. The population of approximately 25 million is concentrated in urban areas along the east coast and coastal regions.

As a highly developed and prosperous country, Australia boasts the 14th-largest economy globally and holds the 3rd position in the UN's Human Development Index.

Australia maintains membership in several international organizations, including ANZUS, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Commonwealth of Nations, the G20, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the Pacific Islands Forum, the United Nations, and the World Trade Organization.

For all foreign nationals, except New Zealand citizens, a visa is a prerequisite for traveling to Australia.

There are two categories of migration for non-Australian citizens: temporary and permanent. Temporary resident visas allow individuals to stay in Australia for specified periods, for purposes such as tourism, visiting family, study, work, and medical treatment. Many temporary visas also offer pathways to becoming eligible for permanent residency.
