Relocating to Sydney Australia

No Comments

I have always had fond memories of Sydney ever since my first visit whilst backpacking Australia.  Returning home to Auckland after 4 years on a 457 Temporary Visa made me realize that Sydney is where I want to live.

If you have never been one of the 8 Million international visitors that visit Sydney every year, then chances are you will fall in love with it and won’t want to leave.  Sydney is not just a good city; it is actually an amazing city.

Here is a checklist that may help you if you are thinking of moving or relocating to Sydney:


Financial feasibility

You would want to make sure that you can support yourself once you have made the move to unfamiliar territory, so sit down and write a list of your monthly income and expenses, be realistic.  You should also include a budget of 6 months’ worth of living expenses.


Finding a place to rent

It is not wise to purchase real estate until you have settled in your new environment.  Relocating is a big deal and purchasing a house or apartment is an even bigger deal.  So don’t stress yourself out, renting enables you to be more flexible, giving you time to become certain of where you want to be located permanently.  It is definitely more manageable to find professional removalists Sydney rather than having to deal with all the stress of purchasing prematurely.


Change your address

Ensure your mail is able to get to you.  There are all sorts of significant letters and documents you would receive in the planning of this relocation; it is a good idea to come up with a list of people and organizations you will need to notify of the change in address.


Enlist in the services of recruitment agent

It is important to utilize services from a recruitment agent. They work on time constraints; therefore once they understand what you are looking for, they can effectively match your skill set to the job opening before it even is advertised.



You will need to decide if you will be using public transport or getting around in a vehicle.  Weigh up the expenses involved including parking.  There are car share options out there where you can rent a car cheaply from your neighbours.
