Welcome To South Australia
The moment when we land abroad, we might feel lost on seeing new people and a different culture around us.

Airport Pick up
Our VHP family member will be waiting for your arrival at the airport to pick you up and drop at the designated accommodation. This is done in the sense of welcome and to make you feel that you are being taken care in a new land.
A general information session will be conducted to make you aware of the accommodation facilities and utilities, emergency contacts, consumer and service outlets in the local community and public transport.
This will be conducted soon after the date of your arrival. Other queries on arrival can be clarified with our VHP team.
People who would like to move from their temporary settlement to a different residence can be helped with finding suitable and affordable accommodation with the assistance of our VHP family members.
Learning road rules
Driving which is a life skill could be found challenging in a new environment. But this panic could be addressed by our team. We are glad to spend our time to make you comfortable driving in Australia by providing the sources of information and different approaches that suits you to drive safely and confidently in Australia.
Applying for Australian identity documents
After you land in Australia, you will find out that an Australian ID proof is an essential requirement. Then the questions like ‘where to apply?’ and ‘how to apply?’ may pop up in your mind.
