Tips on moving overseas
If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident planning to move overseas for any length of time, you should register with Smart Traveller. Smart Traveller is a special service of the Australian Government through which you can access information about events in Australia (such as natural disasters or elections). It can also help to protect you in your new country should you need help with adverse social or political circumstances.
Remember, when you leave Australia, you’re leaving behind many services and entitlements you may take for granted. Be sure you have a contact number of an Australian Consular service in or near your destination.
