How to get past the currency rental and immigration process
Register with the Australian Taxation Office (known as ATO) before you plan to travel to Australia. You should also be prepared to register with the Department of Immigration and enter your quarantine periods upon your return to Australia. The Australian Taxation Office is located on the South Circular Road in Sydney, New South Wales. The address is 12 Commissioner's Place, Sydney.
When you register with the ATO, you will also want to make a travel declaration. This is a document that contains all of the information that you have about your trip to Australia. It is usually filed along with your passport application. The Australian Taxation Office does not issue these statements automatically. They are required for all travellers, regardless of whether you are flying to Australia. Even if you're just arriving in Australia, you can file the Australian travel statement.
Include all details of your passport, including your name, passport number, and expiry date, when you file your Australian travel statement. Passport details include name, date of birth, nationality, residence, contact numbers, destination and arrival and departure dates. If you are travelling outside of Australia, include the country of citizenship and passport number. The declaration also includes the air carrier that will be used to connect you to your flight.
After you have completed your Australian travel declaration, you will need to send a final payment via direct deposit to the Australian consulate-general. You can also send the payment via direct deposit. This service allows you to use your bank account to make the payment. Electronic funds transfer systems are quite secure, so you can rest assured that your confidential information is protected at all times.
You will be required to reply to the Australian Embassy or consulate within twenty-four hours of your filing with them. You must cancel your flight plans 14 days before departure. To avoid any delays, keep a copy of all correspondence. You can easily get through the hustle and bustle of life without feeling pressured.
When travelling outside of Australia, it is important that you comply with Australian customs and immigration requirements. You must wear a suitable costume consisting of loose fitting clothes and sandals when travelling to Australia. Shoes that are appropriate for the season, and at least one that is white, must be worn. Your shoes must be worn along with socks that have been washed clean and dry before leaving on your flight. Your passport is valid for a minimum of ninety days once you have received the declaration from the Australian embassy.
