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; eight years and six visas later, I am taking steps to make Australia my permanent home.

Whether you’re looking to accept a new job overseas, enjoy a working holiday, enrol as an international student, or even apply for Permanent Residency, I want to provide you with a complete guide on moving to Australia, including everything from submitting 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!
