Important documents bring to Australia

Good day, ive been granted with VISA PMV 300 yesterday.

My plan is going to flight soon to australia and setlle with my fiance.

My question is:

What documents from my country (spanish language) i need to bring with me, like Curriculum, birth certificate, translation of my driver license, etc.

What else documents i need to start a new life in Australia and get a job etc.

My concern is to get a job fast, because i speak Medium Level english, my grammar is bad () and im not good for understand the australian accent. I have 5 years in client service work. What can i do to find a job (any job)?

Hi there,

First of all, all of us who are waiting for visas for them or their spouses are reallt\y jealous of you right now. Congrats.

You should first look at the DIAC site and read the settlement information they provide. Maybe ask your partner to read through it too so that they know what you are talking about if you ask them about it. Click on all the drop-down sections on the left. There's a lot of useful things here, so take your time.

Citizenship & Living in Australia

I think your CO should give you some settlement information as well, so if you don't get anything, ask them for it. You should definitely get some free English lessons via the AMEP program that DIAC runs, so this will hlep with your English.

It's tough finding a job anywhere these days, and being an immigrant makes it harder I'm afraid. Not just because you're a foreigner, but because of English and lack of knowledge about Australian culture. You can't expect to find the same kind of job you'd get in your country, and you may have take something you would not consider back home, like waiting tables, cleaning, and other low-skilled jobs. You could try find companies set up by people from your country and apply to them directly, but it might be hard to find them in your location.

I'd say bring all of your important ID documents along with translations, as well as resumes and references. You'll need to get your license translated officially to enable you to take a test in Australia. Bring your university diploma and any other certificates as well. You should also bring bank account details, insurance contracts, and any other important documents regarding accounts of funds that you have back home.

maybe try and find a job where your spanish language skills would be useful?? hardly any australians speak a foreign language so if a company needs someone to speak spanish they might have a hard time!!

in regards to ID, in australia the drivers license is the primary form of identification. bring your original spanish license and go into your local government transport office and exchange it for an aussie one when you arrive. the rules vary depending on what state you plan on living in, but here in qld i think you would need to pass a written test on the road rules... but you wouldn't have to do a driving test.
