Quite often, those with criminal convictions think that this prevents the opportunity of migrating to Australia.
Well this is not true!
If you have a conviction(s) this alone will not prevent you from obtaining a PR or any other visa.
In such cases, you have to declare them as Police checks reveal all any how, and present DIAC with a legal submission.
Hope this helps.
