Moving to another country can be somewhat daunting and more than a little overwhelming, but it might also be one of the best things you ever do. When I moved to Australia in 2012, I intended to stay just long enough to complete my degree and have a bit of fun along the way; six years and four visas later, I am finally taking steps to make Australia my permanent home (stay tuned for an entire series on applying for PR through the 820/801 Partner Visa).

Whether you’re looking to accept a new job overseas, enjoy a working holiday, enrol as an international student, or even just study abroad, I want to provide you with a complete guide on moving to Australia, including everything from applying for your visa to expat life Down Under.

I’ll be sharing new posts on Moving to Australia throughout the year, but if you have burning questions about a subject I haven’t covered or if you are looking for more detail, please reach out and suggest a post topic at!
