Australian Government online help
One of the most important online destinations for migrants is the Department of Immigration website. Keep up to date on visa requirements and allowances such as what kind of work you can do on your visa, things to be mindful such as travel restrictions, documents needed and more.
Settle in Australia
The Australian government has digital resources to help you start your life in Australia. The Settle in Australia page is a directory of services and information that will prove helpful for migrants and their families.
Support for new arrivals
There is a section of the Human Services website dedicated to supporting migrants that are new to Australia. It’s important to understand the different types of assistance available to you as an Australian resident.
It's never to early to learn about, and plan for, your pathway to Australian citizenship. Stay current with citizenship requirements and processes at the official Australian government website.
Information in your language
The Australian government has created a page specifically for those who prefer to access information in their native language. This is a fantastic resource for any migrant or migrant’s relative who feels more comfortable researching in a language other than English.
