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 have endeavored to build a complete guide on moving to Australia, including everything from applying for your visa to expat life Down Under.

I’ll be sharing a new post on Moving to Australia every month, 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!
