Australia is always among the top English-speaking immigration destination countries besides Canada, UK and US for Hongkongers due to its mild climate, less time difference and flight time as well as good quality of life and children education. A few of the Australian capital cities including Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide have been ranked among the Top 10 Most Liveable Cities in the World 2020 Report.
There are quite a few immigration visas to Australia including skilled, business, investor and family options under which the main applicant and his / her direct and dependent family members including the spouse and children may immigrate to Australia under the permanent or temporary (provisional) visas. Depending upon which visa categories and subclasses, the main applicant, spouse and children may work, live and study anywhere or in nominated state, as well as enjoy social and medical benefits, free / reduced tuition fees (conditions may apply).
