Australian visa information

Moving to Australia is a big decision, and being prepared will help relieve some of the stress of the move. Before you book your removal to Australia, you need to ensure you've got your residence permit and work visa sorted.

Once you've made the decision that you want to make Australia your new home, securing a visa is the biggest step of your move. We've gathered together some general information on Australian visas to help you determine if you qualify for a visa for Australia and get you started on the process of securing one.

There are four main types of visas for Australia: skilled visa, business visa, partner visa and family visa in addition to several other types of Australian visas. Your individual circumstances will determine which one is appropriate for you and your family. Below a very brief overview of the various types of visa available.

This information is not emigration advice. Visa information can and does change. For professional advice and the most up-to-date information, we suggest you contact a qualified migration specialist or the Australian embassy or government.

Are you eligible for an Australian visa?

Would you like to tell us anything about your move team?
Both when they packed up my stuff and when they delivered it 4 months later the teams were friendly and helpful. It made a stressful experience so much better.

A bit better integration on the online system for paying, but honestly the whole process was easy

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about your move?
Moving my stuff into storage without knowing how long it would take for the house sale to go through, my experience with Britannia Goodwins made a tough situation so much easier and better. They packed up my house quickly and efficiently, with a great attitude. Then when it was delivered it was so fast, and they remembered me even though it had been 4 months. They were able to transport tricky items up and down stairs, and didn't break or lose anything. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but if I do I know who I am calling to help.
