Australian Visa Options for People Over the Age of 45 | Australia PR 2024

Do you wish to become a permanent resident of Australia and are over 45? We’ll go over the specifics of getting permanent residence (PR) in Australia for anyone over 45 in this update. Please remember that if you are above 45, there are other options to obtain permanent residence (PR). Nevertheless, we will only cover one pathway in this release. The other is available in our earlier blogs.

Designated Area Migration Agreement Visa

This type of visa allows you to obtain an employer-sponsored visa in certain regional areas up to the age of 55, or under certain conditions, a normal 482 employer-sponsored visa. If you are over 45, you can obtain permanent residency in any part of Australia with a regular 482 Visa, but there’s a catch.

You must earn more than the high-income level if you are over 45 and would like to get permanent residency on a normal 482 employer-sponsored visa. The 186 Temporary Resident Transition Stream then grants you access to permanent residency. Please remember that applicants who are over 45 typically cannot obtain permanent residency.

However, the 186 Temporary Residence Transition Stream offers an exception. Before applying, they must have been directly hired by their nominating employer in their nominated occupation for the entire two years on a 482 Visa, and they must have earned an annual salary for each of the three years that was at least equal to the fair work high-income threshold at the end of that year.

How much is the High-Income Limit?

The high-income criterion is $167,500 as of July 1, 2023. Please note that this will normally increase annually with inflation. Consequently, if you are over 45 and on a 482 visa, you can still obtain permanent residency if your salary exceeds this threshold.

What happens if you don’t earn above this amount?

Please remember that you will need to consider other Visa choices if you aren’t making the requisite amount.
