Australian Visa Refusals Increase By 46% In 2017-18

Migrating to Australia has become more complex than ever with statistics showing visa refusals increased by 46% in 2017-18. As part of their 30 year anniversary special, Interstaff takes a closer look into how the growing refusal rate is impacting individuals wanting to live and work in Australia, as well as businesses requiring migration solutions.

Australia’s Skilled Migration Landscape

The 457 Visa program was historically the most commonly used program to sponsor skilled overseas workers for temporary work in Australia and its replacement with the 482 Visa has meant Human Resources teams and business owners must now navigate new challenges to attract and retain top overseas talent, while skilled visa holders need to meet new restrictive eligibility criteria for temporary and permanent skilled visas.

Top Ten Tips When Planning Your Retirement Abroad

Retiring abroad is increasingly popular with estimates ranging from 10% of people in the UK considering retiring abroad to over 30%. Moving to a warmer climate with a lower cost of living enabling you to enjoy a more active retirement can be a very attractive proposition. We set out our top tips to help you plan for a successful retirement abroad.

Accessing Healthcare When You Retire Abroad

Retiring abroad is a major decision and one of the key issues if we are to get the best out of life in retirement wherever we are is access to good quality healthcare. The accessibility of healthcare should be one of the key factors in the decision on where to retire. There can be a great difference between different countries in terms of health standards, statutory care and emergency treatment. There can also be major differences in waiting times, cost, and access available to expats.

Is Your CV/Resume Up To Date?

When applying for a job abroad your CV or resume, and increasingly your LinkedIn profile, is the first contact that you have with your potential employer or their agent. You only get one opportunity to make a first impression and with most jobs attracting hundreds of applicants you need to be sure that your CV/resume and covering letter will get you to stand out and reach their initial list of candidates to be called for interview. Most CVs/resumes will get a cursory review to decide whether you are a potential candidate.

If you have any doubt about the impact your CV will make you should consider having it reviewed and professionally written to ensure you get every advantage possible.

Downtime In Asia

When you have an expat assignment it provides you with a great opportunity to access a new part of the world easily. Asia is a land full of ancient sites from the temples of Angkor Wat to the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The bustling city of Hing Kong and the historical city of Beijing. The attractions are endless.

If your assignment takes you to Asia, you can travel to these recommended places in your time off? Get away from your work assignment and truly explore your new environment, its culture and unique sights.
