Information for Irish people moving to Australia

Australia is an island, a country and a continent located wholly in the southern hemisphere. It is fondly referred to as ‘Down Under’ for that reason. It is the sixth largest country in the world covering an area of just over 7.5 million square kilometres. It is the world’s driest inhabited continent on earth, with approximately three quarters of its area is arid or semi-arid.

The federation of Australia is made up of six states and two territories, with the capital city being Canberra. Australia has a population of nearly 23 million people. Around 89% of the population live and work in the capital cities and urban areas, making Australia one of the most urbanised countries in the world.

Being a country rich in natural resources, mining is a substantial industry for Australia. Some of the main resource industry exports include iron ore and coal, as well as liquefied natural gas. Australia is also a major exporter of wheat and wool. Agriculture and mining make up just below 60% of the country’s exports. The Australian economy is dominated by the service sector, which makes up around 70% of the national GDP. During the recent uncertain economic times, Australia has continued to experience positive growth with low inflation and low interest rates in comparison with many other countries.

Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are the largest cities in Australia and generally have a higher concentration of head offices and larger businesses located there. Employment opportunities are widespread, and the current mining boom is also presenting a lot of opportunities in the large states of Queensland and Western Australia.

Migrants have made a great contribution to the building and growth of the nation. Overseas arrivals make up around a quarter of the total population and have considerably shaped the modern day Australia. Many arrivals come from New Zealand and the United Kingdom, with arrivals from Ireland falling in to the top 20 of arrivals from around 200 different countries. The Irish population in Australia is considerably high, with a large volume of younger Irish people living and working under a 12 month ‘working holiday visa’.

English speaking, skilled workers are in demand overall, and certified tradespeople will often find it much easier to find attractive employment opportunities.

Australian visa issues for Irish people
When you are planning on emigrating to Australia, you will first need to ensure that you have the correct visa for Australia. There are a number of different visas available, depending on your reason for travel and the total amount of time you expect to stay in Australia.

Arranging a visa for Australia could be for holiday, work or study. Irish passport holders aged between 18-30 have access to a working holiday visa, whereby you may work and travel in Australia for a period of up to 12 months. People wishing to study in Australia also have access to special student visas, and recent graduates will also have the option of skilled migrant visas.

Australia uses a points system for approving visa applications. If you are a skilled worker or tradesperson, you can apply for a visa for Australia under the Skilled Migrant program. The following are generally taken into consideration to review your eligibility for a working visa in Australia:

  • Your age – applicants between the age of 18-50 are generally favoured
  • Language skills – English is the official language but others may accrue points
  • Work experience – your skills will be reviewed
  • Education – your highest international level
  • Study – if you have undertaken any study in Australia, this will be considered
  • Partner – if you have a partner, their skills will also be taken in to consideration
  • Sponsorship – you can be sponsored by an employer or family member

The total value of points can vary, and occupations requiring expertise that is in demand due to skills shortages will be favourably considered. As with any international relocation, you should always check with the appropriate authorities to confirm the exact legal requirements for your visa arrangements.
