Voice of Travelers to Australia
Admission to University of South Australia
I am Danesh from India, I secured an admission to study Arts at the University of South Australia last fall. This was the first time travelling abroad, and I was excited by the prospect of experiencing a new culture in Australia. My family and friends helped me secure a study visa and ticket to Australia. To receive a visa to Australia, I had to present a valid passport, travel ticket and ticket for accommodation. My father purchased an air ticket from a travel agent after referral from a friend on where to find the cheapest ticket. Things moved fast, and within two weeks prior to my departure for Australia, I had my passport, air ticket and accommodation ticket ready. I boarded a KLM flight to Australia and their service was incredible. As a student with a study visa and a ticket, I could check in an extra bag. I'm really enjoying my time studying in Australia.
Job relocation to Australia
I am Victor from Estonia. I arrived in Australia last summer after securing a skilled worker visa. I had a very smooth transition and pleasant experience after arriving in Australia. I only had four weeks after receiving a job offer to accept the terms and relocate Australia. With the help of my friend Leah, I managed to find the cheapest possible ticket to Australia. She searched online for the cheapest ticket two weeks prior to my departure to Australia. The ticket to Australia is cheapest weeks before your travel time, and it is advisable to purchase your ticket six weeks before travelling. British Airways offered the cheapest ticket; at the time I purchased my ticket to Australia, they were offering a 10% discount on the ticket. In general, relocating to Australia was a pleasant experience. The flight attendants were exceptionally friendly and offered great food that everyone loved.
