What is this website all about?

Migrant Ninja is a website created to provide in-depth and invaluable information to migrants (mainly in the skilled category) who are just settling in Australia or maybe in the process of applying for their Visas and need some information about this beautiful country. This is done by way of sharing posts, free eBooks, and a range of books covering jobs, finances, child care, parenting and city guides with important help topics and resources.

I am NOT a Migration Agent.

I am NOT providing any migration advice.

I am just another migrant like you who has taken the effort to gather all the information that I researched (and used) during the process of settling in Australia. The ebooks and the blog posts are an effort to provide what I lacked when I first arrived in OZ.

Who is the Migrant Ninja?

That would be me! A Migrant myself, I moved to Australia in 2014 with my wife on a permanent resident visa.

During the course of our settling-in phase, we had to go through the entire process of figuring out the day-to-day living in Australia, from cost of living to applying for jobs, understanding the taxation system, superannuation and several other nuances of life in general.

The books in the Migrant Ninja series help migrants learn more about the Australian way of living and provide resources and information to help them embrace the new country and its culture in a better fashion.

What is it so different that you are offering?

A personal perspective. An unbiased viewpoint.

It has been my observation that there is no single point of reference for getting information about the various aspects of settling in Australia. Most of the websites are either government portals that although offer great content, yet lack the personal touch, or are managed by commercial entities, be it migration agencies or recruitment consultants who are in a hurry to sell the ‘Australian’ dream but stop short of providing any help once you arrive here.

But you are offering information based on which city you are living in. How can that be unbiased?

That is not entirely true. When I moved to Australia, my wife and I backpacked across Australia in a bid to explore the country and learn its culture first-hand.  Not only did we interact with many Australians at that time, but we also got in touch with several migrants who assisted us with the settlement journey. In fact, I have written a travel book about it. Titled Red Earth Diaries, the book has been well received and is available in print and ebook format on all online bookstores including Amazon.

To add to the above, the research, especially for the book content has been either provided by industry experts or gleaned from official government websites.

Any Disclaimer?

Sure is.  All the views presented here are based on my personal experience and years of research. I have engaged industry experts for some of the blog content and for the ebooks, however, in view of the ever-changing nature of the migration process, it is highly recommended that you check the government websites from time to time and keep abreast of any changes that may affect you.
