Departure Guide for people immigrating to Australia

Moving to Australia could be one of the most challenging and rewarding times in your life, so it’s important to feel comfortable with what lies ahead. Of course, international relocation is an extremely stressful time for anyone but being well-prepared could be the difference between having an awful time and actually enjoying this huge process. By working with Global Visas, you will have already saved yourself so much stress and time but there are still so many things that need to be done around this time.

We are a completely comprehensive immigration consultancy, meaning that we are here any time of day for our clients. Not only can we help you with all of the immigration paperwork, visas and applications but we’re also here to help with education and employment, too. Give our team a call right away and they’ll be happy to answer any questions which you may have about Australian immigration.

One invaluable piece of advice that we always give to our clients may seem simple but it’s always worth repeating: You should always wait for your visa or work permit to be accepted before you make any travel arrangements. This is because the processing itself, which is the responsibility of the Australian immigration authorities, may be subject to change and there may be delays. We are not able to give guarantees relating to the practices of a third party but will keep our clients up-to-date with the progress of their case every step of the way. While some visas only take a few weeks to process, others may take years owing to their complexity or changes in Australian immigration law.

You should ensure that you have notified everyone of your departure well in advance; this should include your utilities providers, doctors, schools and other services. There are companies available who can make all of these changes for you but they will charge a premium for their services. But it is of extreme importance that any important documents you may be about to receive are properly redirected to your new address to avoid the loss of sensitive information.

It is always a good idea to plan your currency exchange before you travel. After all, turning up in Australia with no money to spend could be quite a chaotic affair. We can advise you on where best to get your currency exchange sorted and let you know of the best rates, so that you can always get the best deal.

Our team are always here to talk with you throughout your visa application, so if you have any queries or questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch. It’s our customer service which sets us apart from the competition and when you see how far we go for our clients, you won’t think twice before choosing Global Visas to help you with your international relocation.
