International Healthcare News: Australia visa changes 'could encourage expats'

More people could be considering relocating abroad to Australia in light of changes to the country's visa requirements.

Freelance property journalist and founder Marc Da-Silva explained the nation's government is planning to cut the pass mark for individuals planning to migrate to its shores.

"They are opening the doors," he remarked, predicting that it will "potentially fuel demand" from foreign buyers intending to purchase Australian real estate.

Figures from BIS Shrapnel indicate the residential market down under could be improving after price falls in 2010 and 2011.

Recovery is being seen in the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia, it found.

While the country is a popular choice for immigrants, expatriate medical insurance should be bought by people moving to it, with the flora and fauna containing many poisonous and dangerous lifeforms.

"Australia will always be popular because of the English language," Mr Da-Silva said.
