Relocating from New Zealand to Australia

Under the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement, New Zealand citizens are generally granted Special Category Visas automatically, upon entry to Australia. This visa is issued on arrival and there is no need to apply, prior to entering Australia.

To obtain a Special Category Subclass 444 (SCV), a New Zealand citizen must present a valid New Zealand passport, and an incoming passenger card to immigration officials upon arrival in Australia.

The Special Category Subclass 444 Visa allows New Zealand citizens to stay in Australia indefinitely plus work full time here.

Epworth offers support to you with relocation assistance. A reimbursement scheme that you can use on flights, temporary accommodation, rental bond, removalist costs – allowing you to get ready to commence work with Epworth HealthCare.

We can talk this through more, if you’re successful.
