Living in Australia

Living in Australia


This article will help residents of UK to know and adjust according to the Australian lifestyle and policies. Every migrant requires a guiding outline to ensure his or her stay is utilised fruitfully. This guide will help you do just that.


Here is a brief description about living in Australia.




The standard is high for healthcare in Australia. In every city or town there are “walk–in” medical centres where you can receive treatment without having to make an appointment.


In a life threatening or time critical emergency, all you have to do is call 000 for an ambulance.


Reciprocal healthcare arrangements exist between Australia and the UK. Under these, British citizens resident in the UK and travelling on a British passport are entitled to limited subsidised health services from Medicare for necessary treatment while visiting Australia. Pre-existing conditions, or treatment that does not require prompt attention are not covered by these policies though.





Most state benefits are only available to citizens or permanent residents of Australia. If you are moving to Australia from the UK you should inform the International Pension Centre of the change in your circumstances. This will prevent any problems with your pension payments.


If you’ve received a life certificate from the UK Pension Service it’s important you reply as quickly as possible otherwise your benefit may be stopped. You’ll need to get it signed by a witness and send it back as instructed on the form.




You should obtain a Tax File Number from the Australian Taxation Office when you start working in Australia. It is better to start procedures for getting one right before starting for Australia.


Most income including salary or wages and government benefits are paid directly into a bank account. You should open a bank account within six weeks of your arrival, as you usually need only your passport as identification. After six weeks you will need extra identification to open an account. Best suggestion is to let us help you apply for a bank account once your visa is approved.


Social ethics and traditions


The Australian government encourages new residents to learn as much as they can about their new country, its heritage, language, customs, values and way of life, and to apply for Australian citizenship when they become eligible. Applicants are required to sign the Australian Values Statement when applying for selected visas. This requires applicants to confirm that they will respect the Australian way of life and obey the laws of Australia before being granted a visa.


All provisional, permanent and a small number of temporary visa applicants are required to have read or had explained to them information provided by the Australian government before signing the values statement. This information is contained in the Life in Australia book. For more information, see the Department of Immigration & Border Protection website.


On public holidays in Australia all banks and most businesses are closed. Some shops and businesses may open but with shorter hours than usual. On Christmas Day, Good Friday, New Year’s Day and on the morning of Anzac Day (25 April), almost all shops and businesses are closed.


Discrimination on the basis of sex, disability, race, age or sexual orientation is illegal in Australia. Complaints about discrimination can be made to the Australian Human Rights Commission.
