FAQ

Please read the frequently asked questions below
before emailing us.

1

Is this event open to all nationalities?

Yes, you can apply to attend the events regardless of 
your nationality.

2

Can I apply to attend if I live outside of the United Kingdom or Ireland?

You may apply to attend the events if you are within Europe, however, preference will be given to those who live within the UK or Ireland.

It is important to note that the focus of these events is on providing you with information about the Australian migration program and the opportunities across the country to empower you to make the right next step. Australian Futures is not primarily a recruitment event. While employers may be present at events attendees should not expect to secure employment
through attending.

For the reasons given above, we strongly advise against travelling to the event unless you live nearby. Most of the information we provide at the seminars can be obtained from our individual State Government migration websites (see: Victoria; South Australia; Queensland; Western Australia)

3

Are you planning to host events outside of the UK and Ireland?

Currently Australian Futures is focussed on the UK and Ireland.

4

How much does it cost to attend Australian Futures events?

Australian Futures is an Australian State Government initiative and is not a commercial enterprise. Wherever possible we will provide access to events for free or at a minimal cost to the attendees. Where Australian Futures is running a seminar program hosted within a commercial expo, attendees will be required to pay the entry charge as set by the event hosts.

Please check the ‘upcoming events’ tab for further information relating to specific events.

5

Will I get a job from attending the Australian Futures events?

The focus of Australian Futures events is to provide you with information about the Australian migration program and give you insight into opportunities within Australia to enable you to make the right next step. While some of our events may have potential employers present, attendees should not expect to secure employment through attending these events alone.

6

Can you give me individual advice via email?

While we understand that the process of migrating to a new country can be overwhelming we are not able to respond to individual requests for information via email.

The good news is there is a wealth of information available online and a good place to start is by looking at our State Government migration websites (see 'States' section for links) and also the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Alternatively, register your interest for one of our events and you will have the opportunity to attend an informative seminar and discuss your situation with State Government representatives one-on-one.
