Your Guide to Moving Back to Australia

  • Sharebar

If you are an Australian permanent resident and have traveled, lived or worked in a different country for a while, you would need to have a resident return visa if you wish to still be able to gain entry back into Australia.

Permanent resident visas, including the resident return visa allow you to travel in and out of Australia as you please within the 5 year validity period of that visa. Once that 5 year validity period has passed, you have no right of re-entry into Australia and so you will need a new visa to enable you to return to Australia.

Moving Back to Australia

Therefore, you need to apply for this visa if you are a current or former Australian permanent resident or if you are a former Australian citizen so that you can either regain or maintain your Australian permanent resident status. You can apply for this visa so that you can go back to Australia before or after your current permanent visa has expired.

As soon as you have secured this visa, you may begin to consider the other aspects of returning to Australia.

  1. Bringing your personal belongings back to Australia. If you want to come home, you need to bring everything, or at least many of your things, back to Australia. You then need to consider a courier that can help you with this. You can look on this page for our recommended ‘International Movers’:

  2. Another consideration is opening up a bank account in Australia. It is good if you still have your old Australian bank accounts open and active so you don’t have to worry anymore. However, if this isn’t so, then you should open an account as soon as possible so you can manage your financial affairs.
  3. Consider getting medicare and health insurance. Now that you are back home, you will need to renew such benefits or apply for a new one to ensure that you have an appropriate level of cover.
