I'd go with this as it keeps your options open :)
You can't put your life on hold because of a visa. Get the aramco job first.

Cheers!

And should I pay the remaining expensive 6K USD for only 10 % chance. In fact I lost the interest to move but don't know . I am afraid to regret. ???!!

I understand your predicament, most immigrants face similar doubts. I guess you are a little overwhelmed because of the job offer you just got and all the money you have already spent on this process.

Nobody can give you a straight answer here. The 'value' of an Australian PR/citizenship is measured by your own standards and goals in life. I guess at this point, those 6K are a safeguard in case you change your mind in 1-2 years. Remember that if you get the PR, you don't have to move to Australia immediately, you can just make an initial entry while you work out with your family what's best for you.

What was the original reason why you applied for a PR?. Try to think about that for a second and assess if 6K USD are worth an investment for that.

Cheers!

Thanks very much bonkler. Got confused. In fact I just seek Australian citizenship and can't life in Australia forever. Just looking for passport. Please advise if it is really worth it and if I will end up paying tax even if I work outside Australia ?? Can u share me with some basic calculation. Let's say I skip Australia plan, I can open some small private business for me by working with that company as I can safe a lot of money. How can the value of PR highlighted?

Thanks

Hero,
You will have to make a decision yourself.
Question: why do you want Australian PR?

Hero55 07-07-2013 03:57 AM

To change my passport only. I just want Australian or Canadian passport then I will back working in Middle east.

bonkler 07-07-2013 06:11 AM

If it's just for the sake of the passport, I'd say no.

You'll be highly taxed on your income for benefits you might not use on a 5 year time span.You will spent a lot of money on moving countries.If you think 6k is a lot for a PR, the money you will spend on moving and settling in Australia will seem like a small fortune.

As far as I know, you won't get any significant benefits with an aussie passport while being overseas. It's going to take you at least 4+ years to get your citizenship, so the ROI doesn't look that good on this one.

Cheers

Much appreciated for your comprehensive info. What is ROI. And if I work overseas do I still pay tax to aussie government. And is that more or less similar to candian immigration. My single objective is passport and traveling visa within countries. 100% I will not exceed 5yrs in Australia it just getting passport and run away lool

Cheers

I guess I'm confused as to what the point would be of having a passport for a country you never plan to live in...

ROI = Return on Investment, by the way.
