Before you leave.

Living in Australia

There are tasks to do before you leave your country to make sure your arrival in Australia is as smooth as possible.

Financial matters

Check that you complete all the financial, taxation and legal matters that affect you and your family. You may need to set up bank accounts that operate from both your old and new country.

Travel plans

Make all your travel plans; find out contact details for relatives, sponsors and friends in Australia ; and inform them of your itinerary; leave your new contact details with friends and family before you leave.

Important documents

You will need some documents a lot when you first arrive. These include the originals of birth, marriage, medical and work records. You can bring school reports for children and your university or trade papers. You will need your passport for travel.


If you plan to bring electrical items with you, check that they meet Australian standards. If you plan to bring personal and household goods with you, check that they meet custom's laws in Australia. We do not allow most animal and plant material and the country you leave may stop the export of religious and cultural items. The country you leave may limit the cash you take out. You must also declare large sums of overseas currency at customs when you arrive.
