Hi college girl
Thanks for your feedback. Then why people dream to move to Australia and finally end up paying more than 40% tax of thier income. Then they will have half salary. Many people get that passport and back to work in Middle east with triple salary at least of thier current one. I think it should make sense for u now

For your information, unfortunately salary in some middle eastern country is based on nationality.

Hero,
So the reason you want an Australian passport is only to get a higher salary?
You wont get one without living here, someone else may be able to tell you how many years you have to live here before you can get citizenship.

You have to have lived in Australia for 4 years, at least one of those as a permanent resident, in order to get citizenship. That's an expensive investment when you consider how much higher the cost of living is in Australia than many places, the cost to uproot your family, etc. The salary differential would have to be pretty big to offset that. And you will need to find out, as you said, if you'll be taxed. I know as a permanent resident in Australia (US citizen) my fiance pays taxes to both the US and Australia on income he makes over a certain amount. Not sure if it would be the same for you. Only you know, Hero, whether it would be worth it. No one but you can figure that out.


I have to say, though -- I understand that, given the reasons you've provided that you're considering it, this must be something that people do. But it feels wrong to me. DIAC's citizenship website says: "Australian citizenship is an important step in your migration story. Becoming an Australian citizen means that you are making an ongoing commitment to Australia and all that this country stands for." It seems to me that gaining citizenship solely for the purpose of increasing your salary in another country is not really "an ongoing commitment to Australia."

Hi iduno
Not only high salary. It is also traveling most of countries without visa. More flexible and life security and stability. but can't live in Australia forever

Thanks

I fully agree with. Then what could be the attractive reason to move to Australia then ?? Why some one like me, who got or can get a good work with non tax country , think to move there for other reasons ???

Well, many people move there for love or to be close to family. Others move there because there are no jobs in their home country. Still others move because it is a beautiful country with friendly people. I'd say if you see no reason to go, then don't. Australia already has plenty of immigrants who would do anything to be there.

CG,
Highly appreciate your comprehensive details. Seems that no valid reason for my case to move. Non of the all reasons you give match with my expectations. I have love, money, job ...etc. but I am not happy with my current nationally which I need visa to travel to most countries. I though changing nationally will be si easy. Also I was looking for life security in terms of stability and job security. do u think migration to canda has similar concept ?

Thanks

Changing nationality is not going to be easy in any country. I don't know much about Canada's immigration policies, but I doubt they are terribly different from Australia's.
