Australia has this bridge visa while you wait for PR

Post by Wd40 » Mon, 21 Dec 2020 9:38 am

Just came to know,Australia has this bridge visa while you wait for PR.

If you are working there and you apply for PR, you can just stay and work over there even if you lose your job, until you get your PR result

My sister is there, on work visa for last 3 yrs
She just lost her job, but can stay there while her pr is processed. She is getting job offers also, and getting PR is just matter of time as it is point system.

Australia is a pro migration country. Canada similarly. Very few other countries are.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

I guess much of Europe also is. You live in Germany for 7 years you get citizenship.

The advantage of Singapore is low income tax and zero capital gains tax. So it is a good place to grow your retirement corpus. That is the only solace for lack of PR.

I believe Singapore has a similar overall tax burden so what one is not paying in direct tax is eventually by way of indirect tax

Also worth noting - overseas cap gains aren't taxed in Australia when residing on a BIIP/investor stream provisional visa.

BIIP is 4 year visa. PR can follow after this.

SG is great for business, but it's not great for residency, generally speaking.

I think you are a bit cherry picking your notes in Europe's immigration friendliness. It's minimum 7 years in Germany of legal residence (Australia still has 5 if I'm not mistaken and was 2 years not that long time ago), need to still also pass language test etc. And similar in rest of Europe with not so major languages to pick up, so that's some commitment to learn (fluent in Chinese, Malay and Tamil by any chance?). Similar 5 years minimum residency is common in EU countries but not guaranteed though.

In general in all Europe nationalist anti immigration parties are getting more popular, which makes all parties more careful about immigration.

That kind of continues French tradition of foreign League service that gets you into fast track for citizenship. But yeah good call from the French government to point out foreigners who contributed to the country

UK is going to become pro immigration very soon. It is going to be an easy points system and an Indian is not going to be disadvantaged v/s an EU person. So I am going to follow it quite keenly from now.

WD, I don't know when you were in Europe last, but certainly the western part of Europe has, rather clearly, been quite pro immigration for a good number of years.
