Thank you!

In addition to the link Alphadoor posted, I used this

https://www.nationalaustraliabank.com/nabglobal/migrant

When you click "Apply" it opens the same form >>

https://www.nationalaustraliabank.com/australian-account


I have since completed my account opening using my Nigerian address and phone number (no money to send yet cheesy ). It was a smooth process. Your account number is sent to you via email in about 24-48 hours. You'll also be sent your internet log in details via a seperate email (for security reasons) another 24 hours after.
Read the instructions on the PDF attachment containing your acct details carefully.

I believe on every bank's website, there will be an account for migrants. I don't know what NAB calls theirs.

You can open account prior to arrival if you choose the right account. I opened an account before I arrived.

Hi Bellong,

What are the best two banks you can recommend for utilities/daily transactions and savings for a new migrant? From your own personal experience..

Great job you guys are doing on this forum showcasing Australia to the rest of us still planning to relocate for different reasons.

Please I'll like to know how efficient their internet access is and is it cheap?. Cause I saw some houses who doesnt add internet access to their rent option, a situation where you'll have to pay for internet access. What's you guys take on this.

I have no bank to recommend. All the banks are good. You only look for good bank when you need loans.

@OGKush,

Why should a landlord pay for your internet connection when he is not charging you for it?

When you get a house, you will pay for the internet connection of your choice. It is Only in shared house you see internet connection included in rent.

Well!! You're right. Most of the houses where internet connection is inclusive with the rent are shared apartments, which was why I asked how efficient the internet service is and if it's cheap, incase I'll have to pay for my own internet connection. Thanks

I don't know what you use internet for but if Nigeria internet can serve you well, I think you shouldn't worry about the efficiency of internet. It should be the least of your worries among many things to worry about.

For driving in Victoria, you need to pass three tests.
1. The learner's permit test
2. The hazard perception test
3. The drive test.

Everyone (both foreigner or Australian born) who wants to drive in Victoria must pass these tests. Even if you have driven for 20 years in your country and you want to drive in Victoria you must pass these tests. The first is the knowledge of the road laws in Victoria. The second tests how you would respond to various hazards while driving and the third is the practical drive test. But since you can drive with your naija licence for 6 months in Victoria, you have ample time to prepare for these tests. I've done the first two. E no hard. I can post the materials here if needed
