Migration Advisory Services

Australia is a highly desirable destination for those seeking who are looking to migrate. 

However, the Turnbull government’s 2017-18 abolition of 457 visas, and its replacement with a new category of temporary visas, will impose tighter conditions, reduce the number of qualifying occupations, and necessitating a much longer waiting period before permanent residency might be granted.

This being the case, it is paramount that you access first-class legal and financial advice. Not doing so could delay your migration by several years – or even compromise it altogether. Additionally, the financial decisions you make before, during and post your migration will have a life-long impact.


Many prospective migrants to Australia have accumulated significant wealth, are well educated, and have strong income earning potential. The decisions you make before, during and after leaving your home country can therefore have far-reaching consequences.


From a financial perspective, to change your residency status, what tests must you satisfy? And what are the tax obligations of becoming an Australian resident?

Although the majority of migrants to Australia are satisfied to have left their country, a certain percentage will always be dissatisfied with their decision. Subsequently, it would be remiss not to consider your resettlement options should you want to return.
