1st Step : Visa of Australia
The first leg of the migration journey is a visa. In most cases, you should apply for a visa through the Australian Embassy or consulate before traveling to the country. A visa is a travel document inscribed on your passport that gives you the right to enter, exit or stay in Australia for a specific purpose and period of time.
There are a variety of Australian visas, including visas for study, tourism, business and work .
2nd Step: Australian[PR] Permanent Residency
Visas are only temporary and do not allow you to live and work permanently in Australia. To do this, you must apply for permanent resident [PR] status. Note that in some cases, it is possible to enter the country as a permanent resident.
When you are changing your status to a [PR] permanent resident, you may need to apply for a bridging-visa, so that you do not live in Australia unlaw fully. This type of visa is granted when your visa has expired & you are waiting for a new status.
