Moving from South Africa to Australia

Australia is one of the most popular choices for relocations from South Africa. With these two southern hemisphere countries, the warm climate and similar seasons help make South Africans feel at home from the moment they arrive. The quality of living, the outdoor lifestyle along with the national love of sport are just a few examples of some common interests that draw South Africans to Australia.

Considering that Australia is the sixth largest country in the world, the population of Australia is quite low. With just over 22.5 million people, the population density is just 2.91 people per square kilometre. Having said that, around 64% of the population live in the capital cities of Australia, making it a highly urbanised country. Much of inland Australia is uninhabited, with around 85% of the population living within 50 kms from the Australian coast.

The capital city of Australia, Canberra, is home to close to 400,000 people. The largest and probably most famous Australia city is Sydney, which is also the capital city of the state of New South Wales, with a population of around 4.5 million people.

Australia is famous for its raw and harsh natural beauty along with a wide variety of unusual flora and fauna, much of which is not found anywhere else in the world.

Visa requirements for Australia
South Africans moving to Australia have the option of requesting a non-immigrant visa or an immigrant visa. Non-immigrant visas are generally quicker and easier to arrange, and have a limited time of stay and may have other conditions linked to them. The categories within this visa type include visitor visa, business visa, tourist visa, student visa, temporary entry visa, transit visa.

The immigrant visa is broken down in to the categories of citizen, permanent or return resident. The type of visa you apply for will be dependent upon your reason for going to Australia and intended period of stay. You will need to visit one of the Australian Visa Application Centers and allow at least 20 working days for the processing. The offices are located in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban. As with any international travel, you should always check the latest rules and regulations regarding your particular situation and the relevant requirements to meet your travel needs.

You will need to become an Australian permanent resident if you wish to apply for Australian citizenship. This process is based on a points system, and a number of other factors are taken in to consideration as part of your processing. It is possible to have dual citizenship of both South Africa and Australia, meaning that by becoming an Australian citizen you do not give up your South African citizenship.
