There are several kinds of visas available for living, working or studying in Australia :
There are 37 classes of permanent resident visas, of which there are 68 sub- classes. The grant of the visa enables the applicant to remain indefinitely in Australia with various conditions enabling overseas travel within the validity period of the visa.
In addition there are 29 classes of temporary visas comprising 52 sub-classes. These visas are granted to applicants who require residence or visitor rights for specified periods. They do not entitle the holder to remain in Australia indefinitely, however some temporary entry visas enable a further application to be made for permanent residence in Australia. The majority of these visas also enable overseas travel throughout the validity period of the visa, but unlike Permanent Residents, Temporary Residents are not eligible for benefits such as free medical, hospital and social security. You will need to provide private hospital and medical insurance for yourself. Temporary Residents will need to pay the overseas rate for their educational needs.
There is 1 class of protection visa comprising 2 sub-classes.
