Hope you guys enjoyed Part I of this series. Here is the second part:
The fourth benefit that the Australian permanent residents will enjoy is the health care entitlement. As a permanent resident of Australia, you will enjoy the privilege of free medical benefits run by the government called Medicare. Under Medicare, you receive free treatment at a Doctor’s clinic which accept Medicare. Some people also get approved Medicare Card depending upon your income etc. which entitles you to subsidised medicines. Also, your kids may be eligible for dental benefits with a yearly cap.
Fifth advantage is regarding social security benefits. The Australian Government recently changed the rules and now the permanent residents must hold for a period of minimum two years before they are entitled to receive social security benefits like unemployment, medical and student loan benefits that are offered by Australia’s Centrelink. Centrelink is the Australian Government agency which deals with eligibility for various benefits which Australian PRs/citizens are eligible for.
Sixth Benefit: Children of PRs born in Australia directly get Australian citizenship. Those who arrive directly on PR have to wait for four years before they become eligible for Australian citizenship. Australian passport is 6th most powerful passport in the world giving you access to visit 183 countries of the world visa-free. Indians have access to travel 58 countries visa-free.
Other benefits include that they can sponsor your relatives (depends on your eligibility), only PRs can become MARA agents, and they can travel and apply for work rights on arrival in New Zealand.
There are some other benefits as well but I have listed major ones only here. Hope you enjoyed the blog and some of you may have decided to make the move now to get your Australian PR.
