Life in Melbourne

Life in Melbourne is homogenous to life in the United States, but there are many things that make this city a brilliant place to live, and a few that you may want to think about before the move. A few of these include:

Education- The education system in Melbourne is top of the line. While many countries focus on their own citizens when it comes to getting a great education, Melbourne welcomes immigrant children into the classroom where they can take advantage of the same curriculum that is taught to all Melbourne children.

Great Sense of Humor- Those who enjoy a little sarcasm when joking around will appreciate the comedic humor of Melbourne citizens. If you have not worked on it yet, you will want to master a dry sense of humor before heading to Melbourne!

Cost of Living- The cost of living in Melbourne can be high, but then again, so are the wages. It may take time to be able to work out a pleasant financial balance, so be sure to check pricing for housing, groceries and more before taking a plunge to spend money.

Healthcare- Melbourne has world class healthcare and expats can take advantage of this. It is a clever idea to have a good international health insurance policy before moving however, just to ensure you can pay for the services you may need.

Adding Up the Cost to Move to Melbourne

Costs will vary depending on the services you need for your Melbourne move. If you plan to backpack from one place to the next, the cost may come down to hotel stays and an airline ticket. Bringing household goods and buying or renting a home? You will need pro moving services and a good Australian real estate agent. Let’s look at a few other things that contribute to the cost:

Auto Shipping- Shipping a car can range anywhere from $3000 to $6000 from the U.S. to Australia. Price varies depending on the car, weight, size of shipping container and customs and taxes.

Visa- American citizens will need to have an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) to travel from the U.S. to Australia. A travel visa will allow for up to a one stay in Melbourne. Visa cost can range from $89 to more than $200 and should be applied for well in advance of the move.

Import Fees- Some fees will be paid upfront when you move to Australia. Fees to import goods are based on the value of the items that need imported and may include port fees, container fees, unpacking fees, and other fees.
