Settlement service

Canberra is a city that welcomes everyone.

If you’ve received ACT nomination for your visa, you’ll have access to some exclusive settlement services offered through the ACT Government’s Welcome to Canberra team, to help you settle into life in Canberra.

The Welcome to Canberra team will meet with you (by appointment only) when you first arrive in Canberra and give you some initial settlement support and advice. This informal meeting will give you the opportunity to ask questions and for us to provide additional information to assist your job search. We will also follow up with a phone call or email.

If you would like to meet with the Welcome to Canberra team, you must email at least one month prior to your arrival.
