Australian Subclass 175 Permanent Resident Visa Label
Australian Subclass 175 Permanent Resident Visa Label
After all the excitement with finally gaining Permanent Residency, one question suddenly popped into my head: “Actually, wait a minute! What are the benefits of being an Australian Permanent Resident?!” 

I laughed to myself... I had NO IDEA.

To save you from any possible embarrassment, "Read More"

Partial Freedom & Security: 
  1. Travel in and out of the country all you want for the length of your visa (usually 5 years). Even if it has expired, you can remain in the country indefinitely BUT can’t travel out. If you still want to travel, you’ll need a Resident Return Visa
  2. Work for anyone in any industry for unlimited hours a day (EXCEPT Australian Public Service and Defence Forces jobs and those under an employer sponsorship visa)
  3. Sponsor relatives to migrate into Australia, LINK
  4. Travel to New Zealand without a visa

Health & Social:
  1. Entitlement to Medicare (provides heaps of free health benefits, MUST-READ article HERE) and cheaper health insurance.
  2. Assistance from Centrelink (2 year waiting period after PR, with some exceptions) – provides social security payments and gives assistance to the unemployed, retirees, students, families, parents, people with disabilities, etc.


  1. Same ‘domestic’ tertiary education rates as Citizens
  2. Free primary and secondary education in government schools (especially NSW)

  1. Eligible to apply after meeting the REQUIREMENTS
  2. Children that are born in Australia are automatically citizens by birth

Real Estate:
  1. First Home Owner’s Grant – a $7,000 incentive for first home buyers (NSW) and stamp duty waivers
  2. No longer subject to Foreign Investment Review Board restrictions on purchasing residential real estate

Finally, being a new permanent resident entitles you to better credit ($) and terms for personal loans, home loans, car loans, etc.

...and with all the above, you can now stare admiringly at your new visa label and crazily but confidently shout out "WOOHOOOOO!!!"

Hi TheJumpingKoala,
This blog is brilliant...
I have been granted the subclass 175 PR visa. Applied for it without finding out about the underlying benefits of being an Aust. PR.
Now that I'm about to migrate, then I started to wonder how am I better off surviving in Aust.!! Thank you so much for providing all these information. They are by far the most helpful and straight forward, not to mention the most user-friendly. TQ, TQ, TQ.

has anyone ever experienced their PR visa revoked because there was a different visa that you applied earlier and that one was granted thus automatically cancelling the PR visa?

04/25/2013 20:35

Thanks @Sanju!! Yes we try to be as practical and straight to the point with our explanations as possible, glad you find it useful!

@Oscar, hmm I don't feel comfortable giving you an answer for this one because I am not sure and don't know anyone that has, best to check with immigration!
