Before You Arrive

The first few months in a new country will be a big adjustment.

It may be your first time away from home and, like many other international students, you may find it difficult living, working or studying in an unfamiliar language.

Before you start your journey we recommend you read the information below.

Biosecurity Matters

Did you see Hewey the dog sniffing peoples’ luggage when you arrived at Perth Airport? He is helping to keep Australia free from potentially harmful pests, plants and disease. Before you arrive in Australia, we encourage you to learn about what you can and can’t bring into Australia – whether in your luggage, or through mail and parcels from home. Help protect Australia from pests and diseases. #bebiosecurityaware

To understand more about what you can and can't bring into Australia, we encourage you to view The Department of Agriculture website.
