There are a few things to keep in mind before organising your shipping to Australia.
If you are not a citizen of Australia you need to obtain an entry visa before thinking about hiring an international removals company.
You can find all the information you need on the Australian Immigration website which will tell you whether you qualify for a visa before hiring an international removals company.
Another fact to keep in mind is that Australia has strict quarantine regulations so your pets may need to be quarantined for a period of time when they arrive when shipping to Australia.
It should also be kept in mind that moving to a new area can be isolating. One way to deal with your transition to Sydney is by joining an online discussion group for those immigrating to Australia. You can get advice and make friends with people who are in a similar situation.
