Tips on Moving to Australia

Have you finally decided in moving to Australia? After obtaining your Migration Visas, you still have a lot of things to do in preparation for moving to Australia.

First of all, make sure that you have all financial assistance that your family needs upon moving. Fix all matters before leaving your country of origin. Setting up bank accounts which is usable in both Australia and the country you are departing from is recommended. Also, the country you are departing from may limit the amount of money you bring.

Prepare for your travel itinerary. Contact any relatives or friends who are living in Australia for any assistance you might need in relocating. Having someone to help you when you get there is essential since you need to adjust to the norms of the country and a resident will be the best one to do this.

Bring all your important documents so when you finally need them, you won’t need to ask your remaining relatives to send them to you. These are your birth certificates, school records, legal documents, health records etc. They are needed when you apply for a bank account, school entry for your children and hospitalization.

If you are planning to bring household equipment or food, check if they meet with Australian standards. Each item brought in should be declared, if not, this may cause your entry to be delayed when caught. It would be best if you already have arranged for a house or apartment to live in since renting is a bit costly. Moving to Australia is not as hard as long as you stay focused on what you need and what your goals are after you arrive.

    I’d like to add add another advice – from my personal experience – if you are leaving any unfinished matters in your country of origin, such as a bank account you didn’t close, any funds, an apartment or a house in your name, etc – make sure you have a person with power of attorney who will be able to sign documents on your behalf.
