Everything You Need to Know About Australian Skilled Migration


The mesmerizing beaches, quirky skies, and laidback lifestyles are majorly attractive for those who choose to move to Australia. The country was not as popular as it used to be. However, according to the Central Statistics Office, in the 12 months to April 2017, only 5,300 people were moved from Ireland to Australia. That’s just over a third of the total in 2012 when numbers peaked at 17,400. It also shows a dramatic jump in the numbers moving back from Australia to Ireland.

But Australia’s east coast reflects the different stories. The Sydney skyline is crammed with cranes, clear evidence that the construction boomed continues in New South Wales. So it doesn’t matter how attractive the Big Country may be, it is important to be armed with thorough research in advance before making a big move, especially if you are taking a family with you, and preferably have a job lined up.
