BANK ACCOUNT SETUP

If you’re planning on working in the land down under then you’ll need an Aussie bank account to get paid. Take the stress out of choosing the right bank for you, and opt to let us help you choose! Our recommended bank in Australia is Commonwealth Bank as one of the largest banks here and handy access to your account via their mobile app.

We’ll send you a handy link for you to activate an account with them, which means when you arrive in Australia, all you have to do is head to your local branch and collect your card, easy!

TAX FILE ORGANISATION

For everybody wanting to work in Australia, you’ll need a Tax File Number (TFN) to ensure you are paying the correct tax. This can only be applied for once you are in Australia. So instead of worrying about your TFN when you arrive, let us do it for you, so you can land and start exploring Australia straight away!

We will also provide you with Tax reminders and information where necessary while you Work and Travel Australia.

AUSTRALIAN PHONE SET UP

Now having an Australian SIM card is handy for many reasons; great data packages, great signal available in Australia’s major hubs, great for keeping in contact with those in Australia and internationally as well, and very useful when applying for jobs.

Opt for your Australian Phone Set Up essential and we’ll provide you with a SIM card plus a generous data package to kickstart your Australia journey.
