Australia is suddenly the new El Dorado for migrants, skilled professionals as well as experienced business people and investors hoping to explore the new world emerging in Australia.
The world today is a global village and people want to explore new territories and new lifestyles – a different and more exciting way of life. This is one of the major factors driving successful people from all over the globe to Australia along with other factors like space, a quiet life and the ability to fulfill ones fantasies and desires in the land of opportunities that is Australia.
At Synch1 we would rather use the words relocation than migration / emigration / immigration – all words that are part of the old way of thinking about exploring new paths in life and new territories and opportunities.
Acquiring an Australian passport has become a new status symbol among the upwardly mobile, young, skilled migrants and also for others aspiring for a better life.
Australian authorities now adopt a carefully controlled migration system, based on a series of quotas to facilitate easy migration to Australia and yet deter illegal activities.
The new next-generation biometric “ePassport” has an embedded RFID microchip in the center page that stores the passport holder’s digitized photograph, name, gender, date of birth, nationality, passport number, and the passport expiry date. Facial recognition technology is being added to the ePassport to improve identity verification efficiency and curb illegal activities.
Earlier every child born got an Australian passport by right of birth. However, now a child born in Australia gets Australian citizenship and passport issued only if at least one of the parents is an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
A migrant who has proof of at least four years of residence in Australia is eligible to apply for an Australian passport. Passport applicants will however have to provide the originals of all the relevant documents and may have to appear for an interview in some cases with prior appointment.
Every year there is an increasing number of Australian passport seekers and thousands of passport applications get rejected. It is sad to see so many dreams destroyed that could have been approved if your application was handled the right way.
Getting an Australian passport will not be a daunting and complicated task with the right professional help. You can also save your precious money and time. We at Synch1 can help you make the right moves. As professionals in this field with experience and a proven track record, we can help you achieve your dreams.
