Now you have arrived in Australia, Welcome abroad. Things are pretty much new around here. Some of the most important stuff you need to do that will make your life fairly easier in here are as follows.
- Get a sim card
First things first, get a sim card. Any will do. But you will need your number to fill up multiple forms and without it, you cannot do anything.
- Apply for TFN Number
The next thing is you need to apply for your Tax File Number. Without this, you cannot start working. Follow the link to file for the number.
