    Quality of life

    For the second year in a row, Australia has topped the OECD’s Better Life Index. Australians enjoy healthy, politically engaged and stable lives. Their personal security, job satisfaction and earnings, education and subjective well-being all rank considerably higher than the OECD averages.

    At USD 32,000 a year, Australian wages are 21% higher than the OECD average wage. While money is not the sole determining factor in happiness, it does afford individuals the opportunity to meet and fulfil their basic needs, as well as those of their families. Also worth noting, life expectancy in Australia is 82 years – two years higher than the OECD average.

    Facts and figures are all well and good, but some of what makes Australia great cannot be quantified. Beautiful landscapes, a population with a pervasive love for the outdoors and a diverse culinary and viticulture industry are just some of the things that make Australia a preferred immigration destination.

    A stable economy

    Australia has enjoyed an unprecedented period of economic growth over the last 50 years. This has enabled the economy, traditionally based on mining commodities and agriculture, to become more diversified. It is now one of the largest mixed market economies in the world.

    As a result, the Aussie Dollar has been able to weather the recent collapse in commodity prices much better than other commodity-linked currencies and there is a wide variety of work for anyone with the requisite skills.

    Shortage of skilled workers in Australia

    The diversified and growing economy means that there is currently a skills shortage in Australia. There are loads of opportunities for highly-skilled immigrants to receive visa sponsorships from Australian companies. The government actively encourages this and has created some highly specific visas for highly skilled immigrants.

    In a lot of developed and developing countries, it is becoming increasingly difficult to secure quality employment. This is why so many move to Australia and make life for themselves and their families.
