How much money will I need to move to Australia?

I am 18 and really want/need to move over to Aussie. I already have a place to live hopefully. I want to move over at the end of November and just want to know - do I need much money to take with me??

As much as you can really. it depends a bit on what you're going to be taking with you, how you're prepared to live, how employable you are, etc. I am taking $5,000 Australian with me minimum to help cover my expenses until I have work. Try contacting some emloyment agencies before you go to see what kind of work you may be able to get and what you can expect to earn in them.

In that case, I can't see a job being an issue for you. you might want to check out they deal with the hospitality industry and may be able to help you get a short term position to get you started whilst looking for a permanent role. They can also help you get your Tax File Number. You can set up a bank account directly with most of the banks before you leave NZ without needing to use their (goworkabout's) service.
