Hi all!


What are my possibilities with moving to Australia from England as being a British permanent resident(not a citizen).( I am 55 years old, with economics Bachelor degree and half done cima degree. Can perform all kinds of jobs with numbers: accounting, analyses etc.)

Thanks for all the help

Same as a resident of any other country. However, most of the Skilled migration visas require you to be under 45 years of age; 50 in some visas. You can look for other visa types for which you may still be eligible: Visa Finder

Thank you for the answer.

So there is no advantage of being a permanent resident of England when moving to Australia? What if being a citizen?

Why would there be?

There is no difference to Australia wherever you are from, and the UK does not give any preference at all to Aus residents and citizens - in fact, Britain gives much greater preference to EU citizens.

In answer to noody1's initial question, the only visa he could get would be a (temporary) visitor visa which does nor permit any work, there are no working visas available for people over 50.
