Australian job seekers allowance

Hi, I am coming to Australia in 3 days with my fiancÚ who is of Australian decent and qualifies as an Australian citizen, he won't have a job when we get there and we wondered how much the job seekers allowance Is out there.

Thanks

Vanessa

There is Newstart:
Newstart Allowance - eligibility

But you have to be an Australian citizen, if he "qualifies" as an Australian citizen, then he has to get his citizenship in order to get this benefit.
Australian permanent residents are subject to a waiting period before being eligible for benefits:
As a newly arrived resident you will usually need to wait 104 weeks (Newly Arrived Resident's Waiting Period) before you can access most payments and benefits

The payments depend on his situation:
Newstart Allowance - payment rates
They range from $428-625.
