              I am moving to Gibraltar and have heard that you can buy a sim card to put in your phone to make calls cheaper (my uk mobile wont let me make calls there for some reason). How do you go about this and does it mean that you keep your number and your uk contacts like your whatsapp etc?

                Hi Clare,

                Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

                Your UK mobile phone might not work because it is locked to your current telco provider. To unlock your phone, you would need to talk to your provider. If it is not possible, then you might need to buy a new phone in Gibraltar.

                Once you’re in Gibraltar, you can then buy a local SIM card. The place only has one telco provider, Gibtelecom. Thus, you won’t have a hard time making up your mind. Of course, you can still use your UK phone and even UK SIM, but the roaming rates may cost you a lot of money in the long run.

                If you’re going to use a new SIM, then you won’t be able to keep your current number. You can copy your UK contact to your new SIM or phone. Regarding Whatsapp, you will be able to keep your contacts as long as you are using the same account.

                By the way, you can learn more about the prepaid SIM card in Gibraltar on this page.

                I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

                Have a wonderful day!

                Cheers,
                Joshua

              How do I open a bank account in Australia on a tourist visa?

                Hi Alison,

                Thank you for your comment.

                There are banks that often have migrant services with staff who can speak a range of languages. This makes it a lot easier to open a bank account and avoid miscommunications. If you are on a tourist or visitor visa, you can open an Australian bank account by visiting a local branch and providing your passport.

                Once you’ve opened an Australian bank account, you may want to transfer funds from accounts in your home country to your new account through your bank.

                Hope this helps.

                Regards,
                Jhezelyn

                Hi Alison,

                Thanks for your inquiry

                Opening a bank account with an Australian bank is a simple process given that you’re migrating, studying or working. If you reside in another country and don’t intend to migrate to Australia, you’ll need to speak to a local bank who has international ties with a bank in Australia. Those on a tourist or visitor visa can open an Australian bank account by visiting a local branch and providing your passport.

                Hope this information helps

                Cheers,
                Arnold
