My girlfriend and I are hoping to move to Brisbane in the new year. This is our first time living abroad. As a pointer what are priorities upon arriving in Australia - do we need to register for social security numbers etc...?
Somebody has reccommended National Australia Bank? As they do not charge you for banking services? Is this the case? |

|In reality, you want to open a bank account, get a TFN (tax file number), medicare number.
As far as the NAB not charging... I've not heard that. I get free transaction with ANZ, but that's through my work|

NAB don't have any bank charges on some accounts....we have one where as long as you deposit $5000 per month into it there are no charges.
Probably best to contact the banks direct as they can tell you what might work best for you!!
Hope that helps |
