Interested in Migrating from Australia to Canada?

Migrating from Australia to Canada

Migrating from Australia to Canada is usually easier than migrating from many other countries to Canada. The unique relationship that these two countries have as members of the Commonwealth makes the immigration process easier. However, in spite of this special relationship, Australian citizens will face challenges during the complicated Canadian immigration process.

Applying for the Right Visa

Australians who wish to move to Canada have several different options. They may be able to enter the country as a skilled worker if their trade is listed as one of the eligible occupations. They may be able to enter the country under the entrepreneurial visa program if they have money to invest and they meet the requirements for that visa.

Alternatively, they may be able to enter the country though the province nomination process or they may be able to be sponsored by a relative who is already living in Canada.

If you are unsure of which category applies to you, you may wish to speak to an immigration attorney. They will help you determine which visa is right for your scenario. They will also be able to help you gather the right documents to ensure that your application process goes as smoothly as possible.

Working Holiday Program

Young Australians may be able to move from Australia to Canada under the working holiday program. This program is not intended for people who wish to obtain permanent residency in Canada, but it is ideal for people who wish to try out Canada for a while. In order to apply for this two year working visa, the Australian applicant must be between 18 and 30 years old.

Applying for a Canadian Visa

Once you have determined which visa is right for your situation, you will need to fill out the corresponding application and submit it. Most visas require the applicant to submit an array of supporting documents in addition to their application. The supporting documentation will vary depending upon which type of visa the applicant needs. You may need to include things like medical reports or financial statements. Typically, the financial statements will be used to prove that you will be able to support yourself while in Canada.

Applying from Australia or Canada

Some people who want to migrate from Australia to Canada start the application process while they are still in Australia. Other applicants do not start the process until they are in Canada. Canada allows Australian citizens to travel freely throughout Canada. Thus, many Australians simply enter the country, find a job, and then, start the visa application process.

Regardless of where you are in the immigration process, you have probably noticed how difficult it can be. Luckily, there are lawyers who specialize in navigating the immigration system. An immigration attorney can guide you through this complicated process.

    I’m Australian currently in the USA. I was trying to permanently emigrate but circumstances have made that very difficult.
    As it stands I’ve overstayed and can’t get back to Australia without facing a ban from entering the US. Canada is a very attractive alternative for me as my family lives in northern USA and can easily visit.
    Is there any way for me to migrate to Canada direct from the US? If I’m banned from the US I’ll be separated from my family again.

    Hi, I’m a Canadian citizen (born and raised here), and my girlfriend is an Australian citizen who wants to migrate to Canada. She studied here for a few years in University and is looking to come back to work. Is there any way I can sponsor her despite not being a legal relative or is there any way her previous migration for study can be used to her benefit? She currently has no job offers but is hoping to find one after arriving, if she is unable to prior.

      Hello Faisal. You will first need a job offer from a Canadian company. You can search the Canadian job boards such as http://www.monster.ca or http://www.indeed.ca . Once you have your job offer, we can help you obtain the work visa that you will need to come to Canada.
