In simpler terms;


You can work, in any job, except those requiring high level security clearances (i.e Federal Gov, Military), or the judiciary (judges)

You can stay indefinitely, as long as you are good :-)

You will need to get a proper job and pay taxes

You get a medicare (National Health) card

You can sponsor a partner or family member to live with you

Your time as a PV counts towards Citizenship (4 years)


You can not vote

You can not hold elected government office

You will need to spend the majority of your time (not all) in Australia

You will need to be of good character for the term of your PV (no criminal convictions at home or in Australia)
