Why the time is ripe to apply for business migration to Australia
Few countries top Australia as a destination for business migration. The Australian economy has a reassuring state of stability, education and healthcare benefits are among the best in the world, and the lifestyle is precisely what everyone envisions when thinking of a better life. With so many things going for it, it should be more of a spoiler than a surprise that Australia is the destination to go for if you are looking for business migration opportunities to move to pastures new.

Australia reforms Business Innovation and Investment Program for business migration
The Australian government has announced it is reforming the country’s business and investor visas in order to maximise economic benefits from business migration to Australia.
In the Migration Program for 2020-21, the number of business migration places available under the BIIP has been almost doubled from last year, with 13,500 places up for grabs in 2020-21 compared to 6,862 allocations in 2019-20.
Moreover, the Business Innovation and Investment Program (BIIP) will be simplified to having four streams instead of nine under the reform.
Speaking on the reform, acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alan Tudge said the changes are designed to boost investment and create new jobs in Australia’s key sectors.

New Zealand Immigration
Experts urge border exemptions for skilled migrants to New Zealand
New Zealand needs to review its immigration settings and allow border exemptions for skilled migrants to NZ in key tech sectors, says NZTech chief executive Graeme Muller.
Since the pandemic started, New Zealand was forced to close its borders and impose travel restrictions for skilled and business immigrants moving to and from New Zealand, which has “starved the country’s economy of critical skills and investments”, according to Mr Muller.
A reduced influx of skilled migrants to NZ, combined with a lack of suitably qualified local workers, has created a significant skills shortage which has left numerous Kiwi tech firms unable to find skilled employees in the country – especially data analysts, software programmers and cybersecurity experts.

Five reasons to migrate to Australia!
Choosing a new migration destination can be a daunting task. To help you choose the right migration destination for you and your family, here are five reasons why you should move to Australia!
- Pathway to Citizenship
- Every permanent resident in Australia eventually qualifies to become an Australian citizen. Australia recognises dual citizenship, and children born to permanent residents in the country can apply for Australian citizenship as well!
- Subsidised healthcare
- Australia’s subsidised healthcare system, Medicare, provides access to a wide range of healthcare services to residents, including free medical care in public hospitals and lower prescription fees!
- Free education
- The Australian education system provides free primary, secondary and tertiary education, with the country having several globally renowned educational institutions across all levels!
- Most livable cities
- Australia is home to a number of the most livable cities in the world – as judged by The Economist. Melbourne, in particular, has occupied a top position for seven years in a row – and was named the undisputed most livable city in 2017!
- Terrific weather
- Australia’s East Coast has a temperate weather, and residents can experience all four seasons in the country’s East Coast region. Moreover, because Australia is in the Southern hemisphere, the seasons are inverted – meaning winter comes around from July to August, and summer lasts from December to January!
