The process of obtaining a visa to migrate to Melbourne Australia can be complex. This
depends largely on the type of visa being applied for and the evidence you have in support of
your application. Immigration to Melbourne Australia, or Move to Melbourne should help you
understand the process.

If a potential tourist to Melbourne holds an acceptable passport and has no adverse
immigration alert against their name, they may apply over the internet at the Australian
government site for an Electronic Tourist visa. They can only do this whilst
they are outside Australia.

Alternatively, you need to speak to an immigration professional in Melbourne. These
professionals can research your status and eligibility if you have any concerns. If you do not
meet the criteria of these stream line passport holder processes, you may still be eligible for
a tourist visa but have to submit documentation in support of your application.

If you have health issues, have a background that Melbourne Australian authorities may
consider unacceptable (you will not know this until you try to enter the country and your
name is picked up on the immigration computer systems) or been previously excluded from
entry to any country, you may need help. Get this help well in advance of your travel. You will
also be denied entry to Australia once you arrive if immigration authorities suspect that you
are not a legitimate tourist who will depart the country within 3 months of arrival.

Student visas in Melbourne could be mean by which an applicant can eventually obtain
permanent residency in Australia. Melbourne Australian guidelines for student visas and
their possible conversion at the end of the study to permanent visas do change on a regular
basis. For instance, you may start a course of studies with the intention of, at the completion
of those studies, applying for permanent residency in Melbourne based upon your academic
qualifications only to find the government at the end of the study no longer needs those

Applicants for the spouse visa, partner visa, skill visas and business visas in Melbourne
have to go through a rather long and at times complex process of collecting appropriate
evidence and submitting documents in support of their application.

Some people feel confident in doing the process themselves, others rely on the expertise of
trained and experienced migration professionals.

Here are the general Requirements for entry to Australia: In general business visa
applicants must have an employment background, be that background of success at a
senior executive level in a company, or have prior successful business ownership in order
to be eligible for a business visa. They then have to submit business proposals and get
approval from both the government immigration authorities and the local area they wish to
set up their business.

The skill visa to Melbourne requires an academic background and experience in the chosen
occupation. The government of Australia is discerning about which occupations they want
and require the academic training and employment history to meet their standards.

The spouse visa to Melbourne and the partner visa both rely on a sponsor being a
permanent resident or citizen of the country they intend to move to. Evidence of co habitation
and possibly witness statements are also required to back up the application.

For Melbourne Australia, candidates must meet health requirements and character
clearances prior to any visa being granted. In every case, visa applicants must have
sufficient funds to support themselves.
