You can put your Australian immigration fears to rest here

Congratulations, you've just found what you've been looking for.

Would you go on a long, difficult and important road trip without a map? Of course you wouldn't because the cost of failure is too great.

Yet people everywhere and every day do go without a map - when they move to Australia.

Why not have a detailed and accurate Australian immigration map? A map that shows you the way from start to finish. A map that tells you what you should do and when.

A map that lets you know where there is danger as well as opportunity. A map that provides a solution to every Australian immigration problem.

On the 1st of July 2011 it became harder and more expensive than ever to emigrate to Australia. The previously famous Critical Skills List (CSL) and Migration Occupation in Demand List (MODL) are now history. The new visa system now has more requirements and fewer options for people looking to start a better life in Australia.

But don't lose heart. "How to arrive and thrive in Australia", equips you 100% with the knowledge and skills you need to emigrate to and successfully settle in any part of Australia.

This guide combines the immigration knowledge and experience of people like you from around the world who have successfully settled in Australia. These are their immigration and settling secrets, tips and techniques compiled into a single source. The very private keys to their success.

Australian immigration is a complicated and expensive process compared to most countries. Armed with this guide you will have very little need for expensive immigration lawyers, consultants or agents. All the forms required are in the public domain and the Australian immigration authorities are surprisingly helpful.

The entire immigration process can be difficult and intimidating if you do not have the right information. Problems abound and mistakes will cost you in time and money. Once you're in Australia your problems change to the challenges of settling in and achieving the things you're hoping for.

Securing the correct visa is seen by many as being the Holy Grail in the process. This is true for the early phase of immigration, but it's what happens once you've cleared immigration control that matters most in the long run. Visas are thoroughly explained in the guide, although in the bigger scheme of things the visa is the easier part.

Until now it was very difficult to find out what emigrating to Australia really entailed - this guide changes that. The fact is that no amount of endless scouring of the Web for free information will give you what is contained inside this guide. This guide provides you with not only the answer you need today, but also with the answers you'll need tomorrow and the days thereafter.
