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.

We would like thank all the lads - John. Ian, Rob, Dan, Lee, Clive and Gareth - for helping us to move into our new house. They were absolutely fantastic. If we move again, we would recommend them.Mr & Mrs JevonsStafford
Quick prompt replies and service
Genuinely excellent. The 3 guys on day one were awesome doing the full house pack, so efficient and helpful. Then again the same professional and supportive group with an additional bloke to help. Made the process so smooth and easy and we couldn't recommend them enough.
Used the company because they gave quick prompt replies and service, good online reviews and all at a reasonable cost. Not the cheapest by any stretch but reasonable for the service provided.
