Permanent Residency or PR in short is a visa status that a non-citizen receives to live, work, study and travel in a foreign country. Citizenship and Permanent Residency aren’t the same as they grant the holder different rights. For instance, a Citizenship holder has rights to vote but a Permanent Resident doesn’t have the right to vote until they receive a citizenship.

Permanent Residency in Australia

Thanks to the booming economy, multicultural community, and the title of the most livable country, Australia has always been one of the most popular destinations for moving and settling down from countries all over the world. And, the Australian PR Visa allows those individuals to relocate to Australia.


A PR Visa has a 5 year validity period and allows you to work, live, study, and travel in Australia with your family within the validity period. However, PR holders can apply for Australian citizenship after 3 years in Australia.

Australian Points System

An applicant applying for PR in Australia must have at least 65 points or above to be eligible.
