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. Also do watch out for the soon to be published eBooks and will be available on Amazon and other EBook Stores.

I am NOT a Migration Agent.

I am NOT providing any migration advice.

I am just another migrant as you who has taken the effort to gather all the information during the process of settling in Australia and creating products to empower future migrants.

Who is the Migrant Ninja?

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

During the course of our settling-in phase, we had to go through the entire process of figuring out the day today living in Australia, from cost of living to apply for jobs to being familiar with taxation, superannuation and many other nuances of life in Australia.

The Migrant Ninja series will cover books to 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 Asian 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, lack the personal touch. The other side of the spectrum are the websites run by commercial entities, be it Migration Agencies or Recruitment Consultants who always give the impression that migration to Australia is the sure fire way of making all your dreams come true.

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 into Australia, my wife and I backpacked across Australia and we covered most of the cities on the Eastern and Southern Seaboard. You can check out my travel stories at  www.theevolvingbackpacker.com

Additionally, most of the 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 experience and research done over the last three years. 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.

What type of eBooks are available?

At present I am working on three books – Finances, Career and Employment & Migrating with children and Education system.

The following two titles are presently available for sale:

Aussie Migrant: Money – aimed to be your one-stop guide providing information on all matters related to finances – Taxation, Superannuation, Expected Wages, Cost of Living and so much more

Aussie Migrant: Jobs – A first of its kind book created in collaboration with industry experts covering topics as wide ranging as Resume Writing and Work Place Etiquettes to preparing for your first interview in Australia and tapping the ‘Hidden Job Market’. This book has got the thumbs up from some prominent names in the industry as well as fellow migrants. The book has one chapter which provides over 180 links to various job portals, career guidance counsellors, recruitment agencies and industry-specific job sites, all in one convenient location.

If there is any specific topic you would be interested in then please do drop in an email and I shall consider adding it in my next blog post or eBook. As a Thank You, I shall offer my upcoming eBook free of cost to you.

The Blog

Every migrant walks a slightly different path based on the visa type, family status and a myriad of other situations. Most of the content available on this website is generic (Unless specified) and is aimed to point you in the right direction. You are more than welcome to respond, add comments and make suggestions. Even disagree. I ask that we keep our comments relevant to the conversations taking place here so that we can maintain respect for all those involved and add value and depth to the discussion. The ultimate goal is that everyone benefits from the shared learning.

I moderate comments and will quickly remove any that are offensive, disrespectful or irrelevant. That means that if you simply come by to advertise your website, your comment will be deleted. However, if you truly want to add to the conversation and engage, then I welcome your perspective.

Please don’t post any private information as this is a public forum. I might repost your comments and/or try to reach you to add more depth to the discussion.
