What It Takes to Move to Australia
It can be a challenge to move to Australia, but we hope to clear up some confusion about the moving process and provide you with important information that can make your move easier.
Make a Plan
Do you know what you are going to do once you arrive in Australia? Do you have a plan to work, study or live there? You also need to think about where in Australia you are going to live. It’s not a small country, by any means, so you need to do some looking and find out where you think you will be most comfortable. There are places in Australia that enjoy long, cold winters and other locations that are made up of mostly sandy deserts. You can even find a tropical climate in Australia, and you need to take into account what kind of weather you would like to experience. Find your ideal location before you get too deep into the moving process.
Apply for a Visa
The moving process is a serious of steps, and one of the most important ones is applying for a visa. It can help to talk to a registered migration expert about what you need to do and what kind of visa will work best for you in your situation. You want to do everything you can to have the best chance of being approved.
Make the Move
A lot of our customers ask us simply how they go about moving to Australia. We provide a relocation service that can prove helpful in ensuring that you get to the country as smoothly and as quickly as possible. We can provide resources that will help you research where you want to go, find a job and figure out where you are going to live. You can even use this resource to plan out the schools you want to attend or that you want your children to attend and what kind of hobbies you can take up once you get there.
An important part of the move is figuring out how to transport everything you will need there. Australia has some laws that are very strict in regards to quarantine and what is and is not allowed into the country. Some of your items may have to be held in quarantine when you first arrive, and you may not get them until much later. You also want to think about hiring a removal company to transport your belongings for you. The best company to choose is one that has a good reputation and an insurance policy that is in your favour. Your removal company could even provide assistance with customs documents.
Some people sell off their furniture and just buy more furniture once they arrive. We recommend Gumtree, if you want a company that sells great used furniture. If you do sell your furniture, that can give you some more money to work with for when you come to Australia.
