by Guest on Jul 2, 2012

Australia is the world’s 13th largest economy. Highly developed, having a very diverse culture and an enjoyable lifestyle, Australia has become a people’s favorite for relocation. If you wish to relocate to Australia, here are ten essential things you should consider:

Skills

Australia has a growing demand for skilled workers. You should check the Australian Skilled Occupation List to see if your skills match their requirements. The Skilled Migration program offers a variety of opportunities to applicants who possess sufficient expertise and experience in certain professions.

Relocation Expenses

Relocation is an expensive decision. Make sure you can afford the expenses of relocating before you start. The main chunk of expenses include, travel costs, visa and medical expenses, accommodation costs and, finally, money to live on until you find employment. If you have sufficient funds, only then move forward with your decision.

Accommodation and Cost of Living

Before moving, find out whether renting a house or buying one will be suitable for you. The cost of living in Australia is high. Look online for information regarding the cost of utilities such as gas, water and electricity. Also, find out the expenses needed for food and communication. Make sure you have enough savings for your monthly expenses until you find a job.

Healthcare

Seek out relevant information regarding your family’s healthcare needs. Find out which hospitals and clinics are in your locality. You may be required to sign up for medical and dental insurance for your family. Not having insurance in case of any mishap can drain your savings.

Job Opportunities and Employment

If you have been transferred from your host country, then you do not need to worry about finding work. In case you have decided to move and start fresh, make sure you apply beforehand. After getting employed, try to adapt to the new environment. It will help you adjust in a new setting faster.

Education

If you have children, find out which schools are present in your neighborhood and whether they fall within your budget. Also, find out how your children will commute between home and school and if school transportation is available.

Laws and Language

Every country has its own laws and language. Do make sure you have adequate knowledge regarding traffic laws, tax laws and all others. You should also be familiar with the language spoken in Australia. This will aid you in communication.

Crime Rate

Even though crime rate in Australia has decreased over the past ten years, big cities always have muggers, pick-pockets and thieves. Be careful to keep your personal belongings safe and ensure the safety of your family by avoiding insecure places in the city.

Climate

Australian summers are hot. Use a sunscreen and a hat to avoid sunburn when you go out for work or to the beach.

Emergency Phone Numbers
