Moving to Brisbane Australia

Is a move to Brisbane, Australia is in the near future? Here are a few things to consider in preparing for the move.

1. Make a list of things to accomplish and the time-frame to accomplish them.

2. Get all documents in order.  Australia requires a visa or electronic travel authority
and a work history. A police certificate from any country lived in the past {10} years
showing proof of good character. The National Police Check Application must be
completed. A “Marriage Certificate” must be presented if applicable. If entering a
hospital, health care, or classroom setting; or in excess of age 75, a physical
examination is required. A passport or photocopy along with photo, date of birth,
documentation of any medical condition and chest x-rays must be presented.

3. What items are you moving? Moving companies charge by weight. Some items might
be more easily replaced than shipped.

4. Are children involved in the move? Enrolling in schools and providing updated
immunizations will be required.

5. Along with shipping household items, is a vehicle going to be shipped? Vehicles are
another costly item that may be cheaper to replace in Australia.

6. Make travel arrangements as soon as possible. It is usually cheaper if reservations
for travel are made far in advance of the actual departure date.

7. Moving can be stressful. Plan ahead and try to allow free time before and after the
move to deal with unforeseen events.
