Are you thinking about moving to Australia? There is a lot information out there on shipping tips, money transfers as well as choosing the right school for your children! Here are a couple of things you’re going to want to know before you move to Australia…

The Australian Visa Process

Some expats in Australia will mention that visa processing time will probably take up to 6 months to come through, depending on what type of visa you are applying for. Keep this in mind – make sure you lodge your visa application ahead of your move to Australia with a Registered Migration Agent. You can find a list of all MARA Approved Migration Agents here.

Sunscreen is next to Holiness

The UV rays are insanely strong in Australia, so include putting sunscreen on every single day in the morning as part of your routine! Australia has one of the uppermost rates of skin cancer in the world – so make sure you enjoy all that beautiful weather responsibly.

Aussies Drive On The Left

If you’re migrating to Australia from the UK then don’t inevitably assume you have to drive on the other side of the road! The Aussies are just like the Brits and drive on the left – so no opposite coordination or left-hand drives will be required!

Platypuses Are Poisonous

We bet you already know that there are quite a few venomous critters to watch out for whilst in Australia including spiders and snakes, but did you know the male Platypus is venomous? Well now you do!  If you see one of these indescribable animals don’t think you can go and pick it up – they’re cute, but you’ll regret it.

There aren’t Kangaroos & Koalas Everywhere

These two animals may be spring to mind when somebody mentions anything to do with Australia – however you won’t see them categorically everywhere. Just like most animals they prefer bushland, forests and parks so the only wildlife you’re likely to see in urban areas are possums.
