Tasmania Migration Options

Have you considered calling Tasmania your home?

Maybe now is the time to.

Tasmania is a place of wild and beautiful landscapes, friendly people with a relaxed island lifestyle, wonderful food and wine. It’s also Australia’s smallest state and the most geographically diverse with over 40 per cent reserved as national parks and world heritage wilderness. No matter where you go, whether you spend time in one place or drive around the island, we know you’ll be delighted by what you’ll find and surprised at how much bigger Tasmania is on the inside. Not only does Tasmania provide a great lifestyle , it is also an ideal place for International Students and a great option if you are looking to immigrate under prospective Subclass 491 and 190 Visas.
