Moving with your family or alone can take a lot of time and planning. Here are a few tips to help you organise your move down under. Starting a new life in Australia for expats

Create a budget
Find out the costs involved with moving to, and living in Australia. It’s important to ensure you have saved emergency money that you can live off for up to 12 months, just in case it’s needed. Make sure that you will be able to achieve the standard of living you are hoping for, without doing this unexpected delays or surprises can crop up.

Valid passport
Ensure you and all family members you are travelling with have valid passports that are in date for the full duration of the visa you are applying for (e.g. If you are applying for a 4 year visa, you should have at least 4 years of validity on your passport). If it needs replacing, then do so before the move.

Search for job opportunities
Once you’ve decided which visa is most suitable for you, you may want to look at job opportunities, a great place to start is on Australian recruitment sites. Ensure you have all your qualifications and work experience listed and up to date, this will allow you to apply for jobs before you arrive.
Get your trade or qualification recognised
If you have a trade or qualification it’s advisable to have your qualifications formally recognised by the relevant authority in Australia. This may improve your chance of gaining employment in your profession or trade.

Check out your living arrangements
Do you have property? Will you want to sell it, or rent it out while you are in Australia? Once you are in Australia will you want to stay in temporary accommodation, or move straight into a rental? Will you eventually want to buy, and how much is your budget? Take into considerations of these options before the move.
