We don’t like these types of pages, however, they are necessary so please take a moment to read.


I created Getting Down Under back in 2006 and have continued to use it to provide Australia migration news and resources to people looking to make the move down under. Any advice shared within our pages is based on published material from the Australian Migration department which is often hidden away, 12 pages deep on a government website somewhere.

With that said, Please note I am not a qualified migration agent and you should consider the information you read on Getting Down Under as general advice online.

Official resources can be found on the department of immigration website here. Alternatively, we strongly encourage you to contact a registered migration agent if you have any doubts about the process.

Please see this article for some tips on how to locate a registered migration agent.
