One of the major concerns of students and immigrants who arrive in Australia for the first time is how to transfer money from their country to Australia and how to keep the money in the first days of their arrival. To this end, Australian banks allow these newcomers to open bank accounts online, six weeks prior to arriving in Australia. Naturally, Australian banks differ in their rules and procedures regarding this issue, but you can view the full details of the process easily in their websites.
It must be noted that, due to international sanctions against Iran, Iranians are likely to experience certain limitations in opening such ‘distance bank accounts’.
