Arranging Your Travel
Once you have received your visa, you will need to book your flight to Australia. You should try to arrive in Australia at least 2 weeks before your orientation to allow enough time for overcoming jet lag, settling in, adjusting to the climate and finding permanent accommodation.
It is recommended that you fly into the airport closest to your campus. Depending on your campus, this may require you to fly into a different Australian city first (Sydney/Brisbane), clear Customs and then continue your journey with a connecting domestic flight. If you require a connecting flight to arrive at your campus, it is important to leave at least two hours between your arrival and departure times to allow for any unexpected delays.
Before you arrive in Australia, you will need to know how to get from the airport to your accommodation. Depending on your city, your transportation options may include private car service, taxi, train or bus. The cost of each option will vary depending on the distance and time you travel and the route taken. If you have not booked a private car service prior to your arrival, you can visit the Information Desk at the airport for assistance.

If your campus is not listed, or you would like further advice about airport pickup options, please contact the International Student Support Team at least one week prior to your arrival.
