Social Security in Australia
When you first move to Australia, there is a two year waiting period before you are entitled to receive social security payments including sickness, unemployment and student benefits from Centrelink (the Australian Department of Social Security). It is therefore essential you have sufficient funds to support yourself (and your family) for at least your first two years in Australia. You should ensure that your Australian spouse or partner is fully aware of their sponsorship obligations.
