Australia, how much is the dream of moving?
Over the years, Australia is on the top list of living standards among countries. The country has a really high standard of living, and with it prices for goods and services. Since immigration is a service for the government, it also costs money. You need to cook at least half a million rubles to start the process of paperwork and finish moving to some Australian city.
Half a million rubles!
Here is an indicative list of costs: (calculation at the rate of the Australian dollar at 57 rubles):
Test of English 19.500���. You will be very lucky if you can surrender the first time. Many people succeed in this from the tenth and even from the fifteenth. And for every attempt to pay. Confirmation of professional qualifications requires from 20,000 to 60,000 rubles, depending on the office in which you will do it. Submission of application for the main applicant for permanent residence 200,000 rubles; for a spouse who also rides, another 100,000 rubles, and for each child another 51,000 rubles. Plus the cost of medicine and postage, this is a trifle compared to the rest. Take into account and unforeseen expenses.
As you can see, there are a lot of expenses, half a million at a minimum. You will have to find this money yourself, no one will pay them forward even if you are a very good specialist, the situation to this day is such that there are a lot of good specialists in the world, and many of them are ready to move to another country, for example to Australia, if there you can get a decent job. Of course, if you are specifically invited by some firm, then it will most likely pay you. But in general and more often – you will have to pay for yourself.
Therefore, there is no point in dreaming about living in Australia, if you now get 20,000 rubles in your country and you can not take them anywhere else. If, for example, you can sell an apartment and you have money for this whole event, then you must find a way to communicate with the native speaker, otherwise it will be very difficult for you to pass the language exam before passing through IELTS, and re-examining several times is expensive.
Do not forget that after moving you will also need a fairly large amount of money. And read about it in the next article.
