No matter what you are looking for you can be certain it is here in Australia and the Gold Coast visa is one of the best places in Australia. Younger people may visit or move to Australia with their family. Often a visit to Australia for the first time for young people is with an International study tour, where they study with a high school, improve their English, and learn about Australia. If you are a student, you can enrol in an Australian school and study. Many students come to Australia to study English at an ELICOS school.

For those students who pass an English test, they often go onto university in Australia. They are able to work part-time while they study and bring their partner and children too whilst studying. After graduation, many students stay on in Australia to work. Currently there is a high demand in Australia for those who can obtain a visa and work for a business or company. The business sponsors visas for workers who commit to work for the business.

For work visas, there is currently high demand for skilled workers who are qualified to work in a number of professions. This offers exciting opportunities for International people who are qualified. Particularly if you already have a relevant qualification in your country and some work experience in that area, as well as English language ability. This would put you in an excellent position to receive a visa to live and work in Australia for you, your partner and your children.

If you are young and want to visit Australia, backpacking is popular. Young people enjoy travelling around Australia staying in youth hostels. They often travel by bus and stay in share accommodation. If they want to stay a second year, they can gain work experience in Australia.



Australia is the sixth largest continent by continent area and the largest island in the world and the Gold Coast is one of the most beautiful areas with a nice all year round warm and sunny climate. The natural beauty of this vast country, the diversity and multi-cultural lifestyle offers an abundance of rich opportunities for the astute traveller, worker or business person. Australia’s’ land is wide and vast from the outback plains to deep rainforests, crystal white beaches to the large, modern, liveable, coastal cities; Australia has it all.

Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world. The economy is number 12 in the world. Australia has the world’s fifth-highest per capita income. Australia ranks among the highest in international performance, quality of life, health, education, economic freedom and the protection of civil and political rights. The Gold Coast has recently been named a regional area of Australia meaning that there are new skilled working visas and opportunities for students to stay on after they graduate and work on the Gold Coast.



Older Australians 55 years and over often enjoy leaving their homes in the city and travelling around Australia in a 4WD and caravan. These people are referred to in the tourism world as “grey nomads.” This category of traveller are often cashed up and provide a large proportion of income for Australian tourism, as do the younger “back packers.”

Parents who have children in Australia may want to move to Australia permanently to live with their child or children and their family. This is possible and a decision to move from one country to Australia is obviously a decision of some magnitude. Parents with children in Australia can settle for ever in Australia and enjoy the benefits of living in Australia. If moving permanently to Australia to be with your children is not quite what you are comfortable with, a visit for the purpose of seeing your family is an option you will always have.

For business men and women there are enormous opportunities to bring your business to Australia. A visa for business would allow many benefits for you. Your partner and children can live in Australia with you. Such business people often have their children attend Australian schools.

Elite actors and actresses, musicians, dancers, and academics often visit Australia to work. A short stay is fine for them.
