Adelaide - Registration, Permits, and Other Documentation


All visitors, including expatriates intending to work in Adelaide must have a valid entry visa in order to enter the Australian continent. The Australian Customs is the authority that processes your visa entry permits. This is usually completed before you leave for Adelaide.

Expatriates working in Australia who need to apply for a Tax File Number (TFN) can do so online at www.ato.gov.au. Alternatively, you can visit the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) shopfront in person. In Adelaide (South Australia), the shopfront is located at 91 Waymouth Street, Adelaide 5000. Call 13 2861 to make an appointment.

Once you have arrived in Adelaide, your local council is the agency to contact for day-to-day matters, from waste management and recycling to public parks and libraries maintenance. In Australia, the word "city" is prefixed to the name of the council that is in charge of a region or suburb. For instance, the council in charge of Adelaide's CBD is the Adelaide City Council. Their office is located at Town Hall, 128 King William Street, Adelaide, SA 5000. To find out more about the councils and their areas of jurisdiction, refer to this map at www.lga.sa.gov.au.

Household dogs above the age of three months need to be registered with the local council upon arrival in Adelaide. In South Australia, there is a Dog and Cat Management Board that has legislative powers to help local councils in the management of dogs and cats in the South Australian state. For more information, visit their website at www.dogsncats.asn.au. (Tel : (08) 8124 4962/4975; Fax : (08) 8124 4856; email : dcmb@saugov.sa.gov.au). You can also check with the RSPCA for more details.
