The advantages of moving from Hungary to Australia
July 3, 2017
Are you considering relocating to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane? Do you have a job opportunity in Australia? Have you been offered a project there? Moving to a new country isn’t an easy decision and from your partner to your children or parents, you should listen to every available voice.
Australia may be a long way away from Hungary, but don’t let that discourage you, as it's a country full of opportunities!
Check out some of the advantages of living 'down under'!
1. Increasing your income
Working conditions and income are two of the main factors to consider in a relocation, and Australia will not disappoint you on either front. According to OECD Better Life Index, Australians rank 5th among the OECD population in terms of their net disposable income. Moreover, Australia was the first country in the world to bring in the 40-hour working week… so expect good working conditions!
2. Getting away from pollution
Despite its vast size - it has a surface area of 7,692,024 km2 - Australia has a modestly sized population of approximately 24 million, and this goes some way to explaining why it is among the countries with the lowest air pollution.
3. Traveling to unimaginable destinations
In such a big country, there are plenty of landscapes to explore. With hundreds of unspoiled beaches, deserts, tropical rainforests and even snowy mountains, traveling is something you should definitely do for during your expatriate time there.
4. Living in a melting pot
Australia is a multicultural society, with around 28% of the population born in another country. This is a good advantage for newcomers as it means you're likely to find a welcoming and supporting environment. And what nationalities are you likely to find? British, New Zealanders and Chinese are the top three.
5. Almost perfect weather
If you're not a friend of the cold, Australia should be on your relocation list. With even temperatures and mild weather all the year round, ditch the winter clothes and get yourself some T-shirts and shorts!
6. Friendly citizens
When researching information about Australia, one of the first things you'll read is that Australians are easy-going and friendly people, and it's completely true. Starting a conversation at the bus stop or wishing a nice day to strangers is a common occurrence. Australians have a casual style and laid-back approach to life…but remember this doesn’t allow you to be lazy!
