You have near-unlimited access to permanent opportunities in the work force and your rights as a resident are extensive (while you cannot vote, you are effectively entitled to a range of benefits including access to Australia’s healthcare system, social services, schooling and higher education options, and the ability to join most government organisations – for more information click here).

Standard Processing Times range between 3-6 months.
