Expat Health Insurance News: Australia 'is ideal location'

International healthcare policyholders considering relocating abroad may wish to move to Australia.

It is the only developed nation on Earth to have been relatively unscathed by the recent global financial crisis, according to Australian Visa Bureau spokesman Tom Blackett.

He noted that the USA has a joblessness ratio of 9.1 per cent and UK's is 7.8 per cent, while down under this is just 5.3 per cent.

Corporations in the country are taking on new employees and its job prospects are currently better than anywhere else in the developed world, the expert asserted.

English-speaking expatriates particularly appreciate Australia as its inhabitants speak their native tongue and appreciate sarcasm and wit, Mr Blackett said.

He added they also share "a love of pub culture and cricket" but enjoy better weather – what he called a "perpetual summer" with at least 10,000 beaches to visit.

It reached number two on the United Nations Human Development Index, which ranked how the populace can "develop their full potential and lead productive, creative lives in accord with their needs and interests".

This demonstrates how the lifestyle offered in the country is rewarding and healthy, the expert asserted.

In combination, these factors have made it one of the world's top migration destinations, with Brits particularly common arrivals to its shores.

"You can see why Australia is such a great place to move to," Mr Blackett concluded.

The Australian government's Department of Immigration and Citizenship claims expatriates tend to be attracted to its pristine rainforests, ancient rock formations, clear blue waters and beautiful beaches.

Its culture represents a "rich tapestry of nationalities", with the Aboriginal Dream Time forming the basis of many thousands of years of culture and art, the government body stated.

It noted that many of the species and plants found in the nation cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.
