Hi,

Can anyone advise what and what a new migrant to Oz should do as soon as she / he lands apart for looking for a job and house.

Ta,

Hiya princef

just a few things you need to get sorted asap upon arrival are you need to register for your TFN (Tax File Number) so you can work without paying huge amounts of tax. You also need to register with Medicare and take out private health insurance. Finally, if you have any children you need to register with the family assistance people to get any family allowance type benefit you may be entitled to.

For further information, check out this site: http://www.immi.gov.au/settle/info/arrived_migrants.htm
also do a search on this forum for Tim Sorrell, he's got a website full of useful information but I haven't got his details to hand.

HTH

love sophia xx

Plus get a driving licence. You need to do this within 3 months of taking up
residence.
