Most of the people who migrated to the country were either Australian citizens or had permanent residency visas. Furthermore, a large number of people who settled in Australia had been born there. Approximately 9,000 Greeks traveled to Australia as tourists and are now trying to find a way to make the necessary adjustments to their visas in order to prolong their stay.
The data was released during an Greek-Australian Welfare Society seminar regarding migration law and the recent changes in Australian visa regulations. The seminar was held in the Greek language in Melbourne, in collaboration with PB & B Immigration Lawyers and immigration lawyer Maria Psychogiou who stressed that “the costs and forms, especially for skilled visas, change up to two times per year.”
During the seminar, Psychogiou spoke of the basic requirements and documentation which need to be submitted for student, partner and work visas.
