Emigration is an incredibly time-sensitive process, you are either past the age limit or your profession is no longer a skill shortage. Time is everything. A great age to consider starting the immigration process or be finished by is 30. This may be a difficult goal as many people are still getting on their feet financially but the point is…the sooner the better.
Before my life gets inundated with responsibilities like mortgage, cars and debit orders, consider emigration first. What many people don’t realise when you move to a new country you need to build up those assets again. If immigration is your goal, rather save as much as you can and put those finances towards your journey in a new country.
At the age of 30, you are still building your career. There are many opportunities already at your fingertips. Companies want to hire experienced young professionals that can be moulded into successful leaders. Beyond work opportunities, you are in a better position to qualify for immigration opportunities.
Canada and Australia focus on a points-based system for skilled migration. For Canada, if you are under 30 you will score the maximum points for your age bracket, thereafter you will lose 5 points every year. Australia you get the maximum points threshold up until you are 32.
As we look at the immigration possibilities and timelines, many people don’t realise what is required to get a passport. If you emigrate to Canada through Express Entry, after 3 years of living and working in the country as a permanent resident, you can secure a Canadian passport. Australia is different as there are many different visa pathways, however, once you have a permanent residency status you also need to inhabit the country for 3 years to secure your passport.
As a younger candidate that has immigrated, built up their career and secured a developed world passport now your family seeks assistance. All countries have their own rules, however, as a younger applicant, you have a longer timeline to allow for your family to join you in your new country. You can sponsor your parents for a visa and your siblings can secure opportunities because they have a direct connection.
Unlimited opportunities await you in the prime age of 28 – 32. Don’t waste the opportunity to make a name for yourself. If you go through the immigration journey just for the passport, at least you still have plenty of time to live your best life. Enquire for a free assessment to see if you qualify.
