Here at Expat International, we’ve had a busy start to the New Year. With Sydney and Melbourne housing prices continuing to fall, and the demand for skilled workers increasing in Australia, we’ve been taking on many new assignees excited to move down under.
It’s no surprise business is good for clients in Australia, considering the many reasons that make it an attractive place to live.
Here in Australia, we have one of the lowest air pollution levels in the world. This, paired with an exceptional health care system, has resulted in most expats, who’ve relocated to Australia, experiencing considerable improvements to their health.
The fresh air also draws people to Australia for a different reason. Such fresh air is generally a consequence of unspoilt nature. Even in big cities like Sydney and Melbourne, you’re never more than a stone’s throw from a park or garden, let alone sparkling beaches and national parks. We even boast 14 World Heritage areas! With all this nature around, expats have reported spending more time outdoors upon their move. In doing so, they are inadvertently reducing their blood pressure, stress, and susceptibility to depression and anxiety – all of which can be serious concerns for people moving internationally.
With low crime rates, and a stable economy and political atmosphere, it is no wonder people choose Australia for the quality of life it offers. We have one of the world’s highest life expectancies, as well as a high average gross income. Australia offers a high standard of education, both public and private, and many tertiary institutions and courses to choose from.
Anyone who has lived in or simply visited Australia would tell you that the lifestyle is very laid-back. Work-life balance is highly valued, but don’t think that means the people are lazy. In their free time, you’ll find Australians are out and about being active.
We are also widely known as one of the most multicultural countries in the world. Over 40% of the people who live in Australia were born elsewhere. This gives us a uniquely diverse culture in every faculty of the word.
Having maintained our position in the Top 10 countries for expatriates (HSBC Expat Explorer Survey) in 2018, we are excited to continue welcoming and relocating people to our safe and sunny shores throughout 2019 and beyond!
