For those who plan on moving to Sydney from New Zealand, a real effort should be made in learning as much as possible about their future new home. Such a big move is without a doubt exciting and challenging at the same time, and Transworld International Removals can help with the entire process.

Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and is currently the home to four and a half million people. The city has many tourist attractions, and it is well-known for its famous landmarks such as the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Surrounded by the roaring Pacific Ocean, the city is blessed with over 100 hundred beaches and year round sunshine. Due to its close proximity to the ocean, the city has a temperate climate throughout the year, with warm (sometimes very hot) summers and mild winters.

Sydney's heart is the harbour. Sydney started as a penal colony when eleven convict ships settled, in 1788. Since then the city has graciously expanded and continues to blossom every day.

Visitors can find their bearings, get an overview, and become familiar with the layout of the entire city when they get on top of the Sydney Tower and sit at over 800 feet above ground level. Central Quay is Sydney's version of Grand Central Station and from there people can get just about anywhere by ferry, water taxi, or train.

New Zealand citizens don't need a visa to live and work in Sydney. When shipping cargo in a 20ft/40ft container to Sydney, Transworld will provide the necessary documentation to you for completion so that as your appointed international moving company we will be able to clear your goods through customs & quarantine on your behalf.

Regarding shipping to Sydney from New Zealand, household goods that were in the possession of the owner for more than 12 months don't require any importing duty & tax fees. On the other hand, fees need to be paid when bringing alcoholic beverages and cigarettes to Australia for instance.

Many people ship cars to Sydney from New Zealand as this can be quite viable option. You need to do your homework to make sure your car will be allowed to be driven on the Australian roads. To be able to import a car to Australia, the owner needs to show proof of current or future permanent residency, and the car must be owned and used for at least 12 months prior to the applicant's arrival to Australia.

Pets must be vaccinated and have a veterinary clearance in order to be imported to Australia via ship or plane. 

Firearms owners must have the appropriate license and certifications, and need to declare all the firearms and ammunition when departing and arriving from overseas. 

Certain goods are prohibited or restricted for import into Sydney, Australia. Some interesting examples are: dangerous breed dogs, stem cells derived from human embryo clones, or suicide devices.

These goods are also restricted: antibiotics, cat and dog fur products, toxic material, cosmetics, chewing tobacco and oral snuff, cigarette lighters, counterfeit credit cards, drugs and narcotics, chemical weapons, asbestos, toxic material, pornography, toxic, toys, and more.
