Australia Travel Preparations
It is easy to become overwhelmed when planning a trip to a new place. However, we have assembled a guide to help you narrow down the list of tasks you need to do before you head overseas.
Below you can find a list of some of the things you might need to complete after accepting an offer to study in Australia and applying for your student visa.
- Double check that your student visa will remain valid for the whole time you are studying in Australia
- Make sure your passport expiry date does not expire during your trip to Australia. It is also a good idea to make sure it is valid for an extra 6 months after your studies are complete, should you require more time in Australia or wish to travel.
- Book your flight to Australia online.
- Organise your accommodation in Australia. You can organize living on campus with your educational provider, or you can also book temporary accommodation through your institution. You can also book accommodation directly through another accommodation provider.
- Organise an airport pick-up service with your educational institution.
- Make sure you arrange to have medical, dental, and optical checkups before you head overseas.
- Have a copy of your important documents translated into English if it is not originally in that language.
- Create a contact book or list with details of relevant friends and family members in case of emergencies.
- If you wish to drive in Australia, it makes sense to get an international drivers license.
- Organise for your mail to be redirected to someone responsible for the duration of your stay overseas.
- Make sure you understand Customs and Quarantine regulations in Australia should you wish to bring over foodstuffs or local materials.
- Research your host city for activities and customs there.
- Pack your bags and make sure they are securely locked.
- Bid farewell to friends and family.
Enjoy your trip overseas!
