Australian Immigration Retirement Visas

Emigrate to Australia and Retire...

At Haskew Law our team includes lawyers, ex-immigraiton officers and migration specialists on securing residency and Australian citizenship for Retirees. 

As leaders in residency by investment emigration solutions, Haskew Law is well positioned to provide tailored solutions for our clients who wish to retire to Australia.

Australia is not just a dream retirement destination for many because of its pleasant climate, outdoor lifestyle and familiar culture. A low cost of living, more flexible pension rules and the absence of death duties are just some of the advantages of retiring Down Under.

This year, the Australian government made it harder for overseas citizens to retire there unless they already had family living in Australia, but for those who pass the new, more stringent residency by investment requirement and additional tests, it remains the worlds most popular retirement choice.

Can I Purchase Property in Australia?

With our retirement visa - you can purchase your perfect home on arrival

purchasing a property can often act as a useful economical entry point for people who are looking to retire in Australia as opposed to being forced to rent due to foreign investment restrictions imposed on those who only hold temporary residence.

As a permanent resident of Australia on arrival, you will be free to buy any property you wish free from the foreign investment prohibitions currently enforced by the FIRB.

Do I Need Private Medical Insurance in Australia?

Healthcare is important

Life expectancy in Australia is high and the health and social care facilities on offer are of a very good quality. However, retirees should always bear in mind the fact that while they will be entitled to any government or medical benefits during their retirement in Australia this can be limited.

Therefore, they may wish to secure their own fully-comprehensive insurance policy. We partner with BUPA Australia to provide such medical cover if required.

UK nationals are able to claim on the NHS in certain situations, but we advise against putting this to the test.

What is The Australian Culture Like?

Australia has one of the worlds most social and political relaxed climate

Australia is regarded as having a very low risk of political instability and it ranked second in the world for political stability in the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2017.

Australia has a low crime rate and is a relatively safe country. However, as with most destinations, retirees should act with caution, especially when out in the city at night. Homes and cars should be kept secured when unoccupied.


Australia has a highly developed and sophisticated infrastructure and the standard of communications, transportation and public services on offer here is on par or better than those available in other developed nations.

Is Australian Cost of Living Reasonable?

Australia maintains one of the highest standards of living in the world

Australia has some of the least expensive cities in the world in which to live. As with every other country in the world, there is a variation in the cost of living from city to city. The cities which frequently appear as offering a low cost of living compared to the quality of life on offer are Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. Australia has now won the most popular destination for millionaires and retirees for the third year in a row.

Australia really does have it all, when it comes to cost of living versus lifestyle offered for the money.

What Else Do I Need to Emigrate?

Practical Considerations When Emigrating to Australia

Make sure you fully understand what your financial situation is before you begin your emigration case to retire in Australia. You need to address what to do with your pension, what your tax liability is and whether you are entitled to any benefits. Here’s how…

  • Acquire an estimate of your state pension so that you can work out how much you will have to live on each month.
  • Ask HM Revenue and Customs for information on your tax liability on any income over your UK personal allowance. Be mindful of the fact that UK tax payable from abroad can vary quite significantly from country to country.
  • Seek independent tax advice about the benefits of offshore banking – it could make a big difference to your savings.

Other things to take care of…

Your “to-do” list might seem uncontrollably long, but here are another couple of things that need to be dealt with that might have slipped your mind:
  • If you decide to split your time between Australia and the UK, work out how best to secure it if it will be empty for a number of months at a time. Also, remember to inform your mortgage lenders and insurers that you are going to be elsewhere.
  • Notify your utility companies of your imminent departure and provide them with a forwarding address so that they can send on any refunds that you could quite possibly be entitled to.
  • Contact your local Council Taxation organisation, the Electoral Register, your banks and building societies and make sure all mail will be forwarded to your new address.

Finally, when moving to Australia use a currency exchange specialist rather than a bank to transfer your money could save you thousands. We work closely with our partners to ensure our clients receive the most favourable exchange rates available.
