Australian Migration Events & Publications

A great resource when you’re thinking about moving to Australia or planning your move is to attend Australian Migration events.

There are a number of migration expos, smaller migration information events and information seminars that are held throughout the year in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Canada, Asia and South Africa. Other useful resources (in addition to the internet) are publications and magazines on moving to Australia and life down under, see the Publications section below for more information and links.

Many of these events are attended by Australian employers looking for suitably qualified people they can employ and sponsor to work in Australia under the employer sponsorship visa categories, other events tend to be more general information on migration to Australia and may only have locally based migration agents and / or service providers in attendance. All these events are a great opportunity to meet with specialist shipping and removal companies, foreign exchange companies, banks, Registered Australian Migration Agents and other service providers to discuss your various aspects of the move to Australia. The various State Governments of Australia’s migration divisions frequently attend the larger migration expos and seminars in the UK, Ireland and South Africa and can discuss their particular skills shortages and state sponsorship for independent migration to Australia.

Migration Seminars

Various companies involved in the migration process and the Australian State Governments regularly hold smaller migration seminars that are designed to showcase their services and hope that you will consider them when you are ready to move. These events usually take the format of a series of presentations by a migration agent, international removals company and a financial services company (bank and/or foreign exchange company), they are also sometimes attended by a representative of one or more of the Australian state governments. They are very useful if you have the ability to meet with and discuss your own situation and needs with the various company (and government) representatives present, so keep an open mind and make the most of the opportunity to ask as many questions as you can. Check the Australian registered migration agents’ websites that are local to you to see if they offer these events. In the UK, some of the Australian banks and international removals companies regularly host events too, so sign up for updates or ask them to let you know when their next seminar is being held.

Remember: There are no obligations to sign up to any of the attending companies, gather the information and use it as part of your research to help you decide which service provider you feel would give you the best value and service when you are ready.
