About moving from New York to Sydney

Sydney is the capital city of the state of New South Wales, in the south eastern region of Australia. It is the largest city in Australia, with a population of around 4.7 million. For a country with a total population of just under 23 million, this represents a considerable 20% of the national total.

Sydney is famous for a number of Australian tourist icons, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbour and Bondi Beach. It is also considered the economic hub of Australia, being home to the Australian stock exchange and having many major companies basing their head offices in Sydney.

Visa requirements when moving to Sydney

If you are moving from New York to Sydney, you will need to ensure you have the correct paperwork for your stay in Australia. US citizens have the right to arrive and stay in Australia for a period of up to 90 days without the need of a visa.

If you need to arrange a visa for living and working in Australia, a skilled migration visa is usually the best option. This visa allows people with desirable skills the ability to skilled people who want to live and work in Australia. Applicants who are between the age of 18 to 50 years old and can speak English well, along with their recent work experience can apply for the skilled migration visas. Applicants can check their qualifications on Australia’s Skilled Occupation List (SOL).

The visas related to the General Skilled Migration (GSM) Program are broken down in to two main categories: onshore and offshore. The onshore visa is designed for people who are already in Australia and have an eligible visa to apply with under the GSM program. The offshore visa is the mostly for people who are wishing to immigrate to Australia as a skilled migrant.

Point based system for visa processing in Australia

The Australian immigration office uses a point based system to assess migrants wishing to relocate to Australia. The points system fluctuates, but as at 1st July 2011, the minimum score of 65 points was required to meet the conditions of the program. Some basic considerations are assessed.

  • Age
  • Ability/level of English speaking and writing
  • Qualifications
  • Recent work experience

In March 2012, the Australian federal government announced a major change to the way in which skilled migrant visas will be processed. SkillSelect is an online system that will help manage and streamline the processing of skilled worker shortages across Australia. It will allow skilled workers who are interested in migrating to Australia an opportunity to register an expression of interest (EOI) for reviewing and expediting visa applications.

Healthcare in Sydney

Medicare, the national public health system in Australia, is supported by the Australian federal government. All citizens and permanent residents are covered by the public system for treatment in public hospitals as well as reimbursement for doctor’s consultations.

If you are an overseas national, you can apply for a Medicare card by registering with your passport, permanent visa and travel documents.

In addition to the Medicare, having your own private health cover is encouraged and comes with tax incentives to help boost the take up. More than half of the Australian population has private health insurance. There are varying levels of private cover available depending on the insurance provider you are with and the amount you wish to spend on your coverage. Premium prices vary considerably, and you could expect to pay from $100 per month to $500 per month, dependent upon your personal situation and your options extras.

Cost of living in Sydney

As with most major cities, the cost of living in Sydney is one of the most expensive in the country. Real estate and rental prices are generally higher than most other places in Australia, but it is naturally dependent upon where you wish to live and the type of housing you are looking for. In the inner city regions, harbour areas, eastern suburbs and coastal areas of Sydney, you can expect to pay much more for property.

The tax year in Australia runs from 1st July to 30th June. Your personal tax is calculated based on your total income using a tiered system. The rates are scaled based on the following table:

  • $0 – $6,000 : You do not pay any tax on income up to this amount
  • $6,001 – $37,000 : You pay 15c for each $1 over $6,000
  • $37,001 – $80,000 : You pay $4,650 plus 30c for each $1 over $37,000
  • $80,001 – $180,000 : You pay $17,550 plus 37c for each $1 over $80,000
  • $180,001 and over : You pay $54,550 plus 45c for each $1 over $180,000
