The process of moving to Australia is no simple task. There is plenty an expat needs to prepare for when it comes to relocating, shipping, and storing their household goods in Australia. For example, if you are planning on heading to Australia, you must know the limitations on the items you can bring into the country duty-free. Personal items coming in with you cannot exceed a total value of 900 AUD (632 USD), and they must have been owned and used for at least a year. No more than 2.25 liters of alcohol is allowed to enter the country per traveler, and only 25 cigarettes or 25 grams of tobacco products can be brought in per person aged 18 years or older.
When it comes to vaccinations required for Australia, there is the main one you need to worry about, and that is the yellow fever vaccine. This is mandatory for anyone coming to Australia from a country with a risk of yellow fever. Routine vaccinations are recommended too, such as the measles vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and yearly flu shot. Specific health requirements and medical examinations will be necessary too depending on your age, the type of visa you apply for, and country you are coming from.
If you intend on entering Australia with pets, you must first figure out which group your cat or dog falls under 1, 2, or 3. Group 1 are dogs and cats coming from New Zealand, Cocos Islands, and Norfolk Island. These pets will not require an import permit when migrating Down Under. Cats and dogs that fall under group 2 and 3 will require an import permit. These are dogs and cats that come from approved rabies-free countries, and approved countries where rabies is absent or well-controlled, respectively.
