- Purchase the complete Expat Arrivals Adelaide Guide (PDF)
Expats considering shipping items to Adelaide will first need to decide what to lug along on their move to Australia. Shipping can quickly become expensive, and Adelaide has plenty of resources to purchase items upon arrival.
Shipping smaller items to Adelaide
Expats moving to Adelaide should remember that if they have less than 20 boxes it is not worthwhile shipping through a commercial shipper. The private companies are more expensive than local post offices, so it’s vital to consider all the options and conduct the proper research beforehand. Expats should consider air mail when they need items delivered quickly, or if they don’t mind higher costs.
Shipping pets to Adelaide
Shipping pets to Australia can be a complex process. The relevant bio-security regulations relating to one's country of origin must be met, and a microchip implanted on the animal for identification purposes. Owners will also need to pay for air transport and the relevant documentation.
