There are no vaccination requirements (besides children vaccination routine), but i t is recommended to get vaccination against Hepatitis A and B and tetanus. There is no malaria, cholera or yellow fever however, insects- , especially, mosquito-borne tropical diseases such as dengue fever or Ross river virus can cause severe health conditions. Flies cause problems mainly in the Australian outback as hundreds of them can pester the passer-by at the same time searching for protein in your eyes, nose, ears. So, you need to use effective insect repellents when in Australia.

Protect yourself from the sun and UV radiation. As the ozone hole is directly above Australia you can get sunburned more easily. Try to avoid staying in the sun from 11 till 15, use suncream with an SPF of at least 15 and wear protective clothing.
“My mum has lived in Melbourne for ages. Unfortunately, we have not been able to meet so far. And then, a few weeks ago a message came that I could start arranging the documents needed for the travel.
At this point I started to search the Internet for information on the visa process. I contacted several travel agencies but none of them seemed to be helpful-but then I have found Szilvi! She was very helpful, interested and up to date with the regulations- even for the first time when we talked on the phone and she did not know that we would choose her. As I put down the phone I knew that she was the one.:)
When a problem arose, she informed us correctly and started to look for the solution immediately. With her assistance I could meet my mum again!
Thank you Szilvia for everything!”

“We believe that everything happens for a reason. There was a reason for meeting someone who recommended Szilvi regarding Australia. We looked at the homepage and there was no doubt that this is what we need. The style, the professionalism. The detailed but not trivial pieces of information. The beautiful but yet not corny pictures. So, everything is in its place.
Time is money. For Szilvi and for us as well. So, we did not waste each other’s time, there was no beating about the bush.
As we wanted to take our son, during the visa process a personal interview with our case officer could be expected, so when being interviewed nothing came by surprise.
The news that the whole family can travel came the next day. We can live or rather experience one of the biggest dreams in our lives. Do we need anything more?
Anybody who has a question or is in doubt can turn to her. We would choose her once again.
Thank you Szilvi, thank you Irany Ausztralia.

“This is not the first time, when we write an opinion about Szilvi…. and maybe it is not the last one too. I don’t want to repeat myself and others.
We all knows, she is positve, professional, hard working and helpful with facinating, friendly and honest personality. She does her work with high motivation and passion. She doesn’t handle clients as cases rather as families, as independent people, as challenges. Her voice is relaxing and pleasant. She doesn’t leave her clients all alone neither during the travelling and nor after.
We have been in Sydney from February with visa 402. Not too long time ago, we decided to extend our visa with another half year. It seemed easy, since everything was the same as our earlier visa. So we arranged it without agent. BUT when our health examination was done in Hungary, HAP ID systems didn’t exist and IMMI officers required our earlier health records. We asked help from Szilvi even she has been in Hungary. She got in touch with the doctor and our case officer in Vienna. She arranged it quickly and professionally. In this way, she spared time and money for us. Finally, after a week, we hold our new visa in our hand….again….with her help.
I message you, that distance between Hungary and Australia doesn’t exist for her professional work. She can arrange visa in Hungary and Australia too.
Don’t hesitate to contact her!
Thanks Szilvi so much….again!!!
„ A wonderful Christmas present, then loads of worries and sleepless nights. Maybe, we cannot travel. What is even worse, will there be one of the family members’ seats empty on the plane?
But not. Thanks to Szilvi we can spend our freetime with planning our stay in Australia J. When I first visited this page I felt it is a bit overrated and I could not believe everybody wrote contented comments. All of you have met such pages full of self-congratulations.
I do not want to write much. The point is simply the following: what the others wrote was absolutely correct.
Go for it Szilvi, but be cautious, at the end there won’t be any Hungarians left.
Thank you for your professional help.”
It’s very difficult to express how we feel now with simple words. Thanks to Irány Ausztrália and Szilvia above all, we have moved to a city and continent which (with my husband’s words) is like other people’s screen savers. However, you have to know one thing, without a professional your dreams cannot come true. We heard about Australia as a possibility from a couple, The girl quit her job and said they would move to Australia. I immediately checked what is known about Australia: economy, employment possibilities, entertainment, anything about life over there, then I found an article: Melbourne became the most livable city in the world in 2013. This was the moment I realised I wanted to live there. I decided to find an agent by browsing forums on the Internet and this is how I found Szilvia. Szilvia can be described with the followings: she calls you back at once, is professional, up to date and honest. Our case was not simple because of different health issues and without Szilvia we could not have the visa. And the couple whom we had the idea from is still in Hungary! I was thinking about giving them Szilvia’s phone number 😉 . We can recommend her with a warm heart. And remember we could not move to Australia without her! So, go for Australia with Irány Ausztralia!”
