Moving to Perth Australia?

If you’re considering emigrating to Perth in Western Australia and don’t know where to start, then join our online community at www.perthpoms.com

Perth Poms was formed five years ago to provide help and support to people looking at making the move to WA and also to act as a place where expats who’d made the move down under could socialise and make new friends. After all, rebuilding your social circle and support network is one of the hardest tasks newly arrived migrants face.

The forum has over one thousand active members who regularly participate. Help and advice is available on all aspects on the emigration process such as visas, flights, removals companies, shipping insurance, shipping pets, transferring money etc along with post arrival issues such as where to live/which are the best suburbs, which schools are the best, where can I find work, meeting friends etc

With over two and a half thousand posts made each and every month, the forum contains a plethora of valuable information. If you’re considering making the move to Perth or have already migrated, we’d love for you to joing our ever growing community.

Registration is quick and simple, so what are you waiting for 🙂 Join the biggest Perth migration forum on the internet.
