WHY Australia?

Australia is second happiest country in the world.
The famous and well-recognized journal “The Wall Street Journal” gave this title to Australia after analyzing eleven welfare variables used by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that created the Better Life Index.
Australia has high values in all variables assigned by the index: employment, income, housing, community, education, work-personal balance, environment, citizen participation, health, life satisfaction and safety.
It is well-known that Australia has an active economy that has been strengthened over the last decades. International commerce is orientated to the fabrication of high-value products and services.
It has a skilled workforce, the socio-political backing of democratic institutions, social harmony and a lifestyle that is an example throughout the world.
The visa approval process of the qualified migration program takes, on average, 18 months, which is considered fast compared to other countries.
For the practice of several occupations in Australia, a professional validation prior to the granting of the visa is required, which facilitates the insertion in the local labour market.
The Australian educational level is recognized worldwide for its excellent quality. This gives credit to the high proportion of foreigners who make up the student population of Australian universities, who represent more than 10% of the total number of students enrolled in these institutions.
The Australian climate is quite tolerable. It varies according to the different regions. While the North is tropical, the South has seasons. Winters are mild compared to North America and Europe.
The Australian lifestyle favours the enjoyment of free time with family, friends, sports and contact with nature. Work is a fundamental value of society but must be accompanied by the necessary time for rest and recreational activities.
