Differences in residency
Hey! A lot of people been asking questions, such as "can you buy a second hand house with student visa", "can my children enjoy free education under temporary visa?" or "do I entitle for free medical services under permanent visa?
In Australia, generally everyone must hold a visa to stay lawfully in the country. A person can hold temporary or permanent visa to stay temporary or permanently in Australia. For those who do not hold a TR or PR, they are considered "non-resident".
Attached is the differences in what you can enjoy as "non-resident", "temporary resident", "permanent resident" and "citizen".
Due to the changes in Australian migration law, I am strongly encouraging you to explore the options you are entitled for Australian permanent residency.
