Disillusioned Brits seeking an escape from the UK recession and dreary weather are increasingly focusing on a brighter future down under, according to a worldwide Australian visa specialist.
Online PR News – 07-September-2009 – – The international immigration consultants, Global Visa Ltd, has reported an enormous 123% jump in British customers asking about applying for Australian work visas during the past twelve months.
"We’ve experienced a massive rise in enquiries about living and working in Australia," says company founder Liam Clifford, "as the gloomy economy and weather prompts people to look for a better lifestyle overseas, and in response we’ve now opened a new Australian office which is already incredibly successful."
With endless beaches, sunny skies and a warm welcome, Australia is perceived by many to be the ideal new home, offering an attractive lifestyle, stable economy and a low crime rate. All this adds up to an enticing package for UK immigrants, who may be professionals such as engineers, doctors and nurses, accountants or dentists, or those with a skilled trade like carpenters, electricians, bakers or hairdressers. Australia has a surprising number of skill shortages in industry sectors which UK immigrants are eager to fill, so up-to-date information on visa requirements and processes is invaluable.
Starting a new life in other destinations such as South Africa and Canada is also of interest to UK immigrants at the moment, and overall Global Visas has seen its turnover grow by over 40% last year. This is due to the unique position and experience the company has to offer.
"Global Visas provides the in-depth knowledge of a multinational network of staff to our clients who are looking to emigrate," continues Liam, "combined with sound advice and a fast and efficient visa service. Whether clients are qualified professionals or have a desirable skill or trade, we are best placed to help them achieve their Australian dream!"
