If you are looking for assistance on your arrival to Adelaide, there are services that can help you.

Discounted on arrival accommodation

Securing accommodation for your arrival in South Australia can take some time. Immigration SA has secured serviced apartment accommodation options to assist you whilst you are seeking longer term arrangements. Mostly in the Adelaide CBD there are spacious, secure and convenient options that allow you to orientate yourself when you first arrive and see the sights. 

These accommodation providers are offering attractive discounts to state nominated Immigration SA clients. Apartments range in size from one to three bedrooms, are fully furnished and self-contained (i.e. kitchen and usually also laundry facilities).  

Immigration SA does not endorse any specific accommodation provider and all offers are subject to availability and provider discretion. 
We encourage you to actively research all accommodation options to best suit your circumstance. 

For owners/managers of large portfolios of self-contained apartments, please contact Immigration SA if you would like to offer exclusive discounts to skilled migrants (minimum portfolio sizes apply).
