Permanent residency (PR) is the right to permanently live and work in Australia. It is affixed on your passport. As soon as you are granted Permanent residency you become immediately eligible for state medical care. 

In order to qualify for the social welfare assistance, that is availing the unemployment benefits, you must have been residing in Australia for at least two years. It is noteworthy that permanent residents do not enjoy the right to vote.

Permanent residents can apply for Australian citizenship after two years; this entitles them to an Australian passport.
