Did my initial entry last month and have been to Melbourne and Sydney. Both places are good but sydney is high on cost of living.

All i can say is take it slow .. as its a completely new place .. Finding a job in your field will be challenging.

Get the initial stuff sorted like bank accounts, TFN, Medicare etc ..

Find an accommodation, settle down and start your job hunt.

You should be on saving mode :) try to minimize expenditures in all ways possible till you land up in a job :)

Good luck ...

I am planning to travel in August mid, heard that with start of new financial year job opportunities will be more. Will be relocating to Sydney initially as IT jobs are more in number there.
Any suggestions for something like part-time work, till I do not get permanent job in my field.
@MysticRiver

Thanks!

both are very good cities. I think the cost of living in Brisbane is comparatively lesser than Melbourne. Melbourne and Sydney are getting congested (but don't compare the congestion like Bangalore or Mumbai :) ).

I live in Adelaide, less traffic, less people. but at the same time, less employment opportunities compared to MEL or SYD.
Is there any opportunities for Pharmacists in Adelaide?

How easy is to get a job at a vineyard for an Indian in Adelaide ? Have completed 3 Levels from WES - which have some value!
Are there jobs in the field of Design/Graphics/Animation in Adelaide ?

Yes..!!

Any info regarding the life and expenditure in the Adelaide (SA) region, feel free to tag me. :):)
I'm considering moving to Australia, and was interested in Adelaide.
My domain is IT Infrastructure and Information security.
As there are many defense related industries in and around Adelaide, most of the Job postings mention Citizens with NV1 clearance.
Will it be very difficult for someone on PR to find a job?

Don't know if this information going to help someone or not. Just sharing my experience.

  • So I left my489 Tas visa for 190 NSW visa and moved here. Transportation is expensive here. I got enrolled in college. If your college is eligible you might want to apply for concession OPAL card which cuts down your transportation price to almost half.
  • And acc to my experience when you got enrolled in any college, you are not eligible for HECS HELP but you are eligible for CSPs which is the subsidised fee which you have to pay upfront to college. Govt pays 60% of your fees and you just have to pay 30%.
  • You can't drive in NSW with international license after 3 months of getting PR. Within 3 months you have to apply for NSW license. For that you have to pass DKT then again you book for driving test. Then you would have NSW license.
  • If your workplace or college requires you to have any kind of vaccination, MEDICARE won't cover that. tHEY said you'll have to pay for that.
That is all I have to share until now. Also people with PR I suggest you to share your experience and benefits which we can get. Thanks
Hi mate,

Just saw your old post and had a question:

Did you apply and get two grants - TAS 489 and NSW 199??

Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
