International Healthcare News: Australia 'is a great place to live'

Australia is "probably one of the best places to live", a specialist has said.

Your Property Club founder and real estate investor Brett Alegre-Wood argued that expatriates might find the first three months in their new country difficult, but this is because "it is a different way of life".

He noted the culture is similar to that in the UK, with both populaces thinking in "the same way".

However, while people can use public transport in many countries, driving is more essential down under because the country is "more spread out".

"It is a lot more spacious and lifestyle-based," the specialist remarked.

Individuals relocating abroad to Australia should consider how they will pay for their new life, as "it has got expensive", Mr Alegre-Wood added.

ExpatArrivals.com points out that people moving to the country will need to have adequate expatriate health insurance if they are asking to live and work through a 457 visa – "the most popular visa category other than the permanent residence option".
