If you are a Chinese citizen who recently visited Australia for business or pleasure, you might be wondering how to start driving legally. It is possible to visit various tourist attraction sites using public transport, but you may want the convenience and comfort conveyed by a personal car. There are two major ways to start driving in Australia if you have a Chinese driver’s license.
Have a NAATI Translator to Translate Your Driver’s License
Translating your Chinese driver’s license is the easiest way to start driving legally in Australia. Of course, the license must be valid and not be expired. Translators have no power to correct negated documents, and you may have to consult traffic authorities for such services.
Once you are ready to have your document translated, be sure to hire a NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) accredited professional. NAATI is a recognized organization mandated to maintain a high quality of 驾照翻译 and interpretation services. Thus, if their certified expert offers their service to you, the Australian government will classify your translated Chinese driver’s license as legal.
Note that using a translated version of your driver’s license may only be available to temporary visa holders. Non-permanent residents may also use NAATI translated documents. If you plan on staying in Australia’s Northern Territory for more than three months, you will have to look at an option discussed later in this article.
Possess an International Driver’s License (IDL)
If you have an international driver’s license, you can drive as easily in Australia as you do in your home country. However, Chinese citizens may have a problem given that China is not an FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) member. Thus, its government fails to recognize IDLs.
Some Chinese citizens prefer applying for a Hong Kong driver’s license and use that to obtain an IDL. As you might imagine, the process is long, relatively costly, and unfavorable to people visiting Australia for less than three months.
As mentioned, the Northern Territory requires foreign drivers to use translated licenses for up to three months. After the period, one must obtain an Australian driver’s license. Depending on your state of residence, you might have to attend a driving school. The same applies to persons in possession of a permanent residence visa for longer than three months.
Remember to carry your driver’s license, its translated version, and a visa at all times to avoid trouble with traffic authorities. If you feel that driving in Australia is awkward due to unfamiliar infrastructure and rules, be sure to seek guidance from a qualified local driver. Undoubtedly, it would be best if you observed standard rules such as putting your seat-belt on and never driving under the influence.
Not only can adding a citrus tree to your property increase its curb appeal but it can provide you with plenty of nutritious and delicious produce for years to come. Many citrus trees originated in southeast Asia but have been adapted to many different climates for cultivation all over the world. Keep reading for the top three rare fruit trees that are chosen by homeowners just like you. They add a little color to your garden and can satisfy your taste buds as well.
- Hirado Pummelo Tree
Pummelos (also referred to as ‘pomelos’) are the biggest kinds of citrus in the world. With a pale green exterior, this fruit grows to a diameter of 6-12 inches and hails from the hot and sultry climates of countries in southeast Asia. This tree can be found growing wild on the banks of bodies of water in Malaysia, Thailand and even parts of China. This tree has been cultivated to grow outside in the soil or as a houseplant, rooted in a deep planter and given quite a bit of natural light.
- Sanbokan Sweet Lemon Tree
When people think of citrus trees, lemons and limes are the fruits that primarily leap to mind. While rarer than your average lemon, this sweet variety is no less pleasing. The tree gives off a pleasing fragrance and the fruit itself tastes very sweet, reminiscent of fresh-squeezed lemonade. It is widely considered to be the most appetizing and most delicious of lemon species. This lemon comes from Japan and is self-fertile, meaning it can pollinate itself and create its own clones with very little effort on your part. This tree can be grown inside but it is especially effective when used to give color and flavor to your landscape.
- Osceola Tangelo Tree
For those who want to mix it up with their favorite attributes of two different fruits, a hybrid like the tangelo is perfect. With this tree, the cross-pollination is done for you. This is a mixture of the clementine orange and the Orlando tangelo. It is smaller than an orange, but larger than a clementine. It is orange in color but has a taste that is comparable to that of a grapefruit. It is acidic but also sweeter than regular grapefruits. If you would like to preserve your tangelos, it is recommended to mix them with a favored blend of other tangelos or mix some temple into it.
Having a patch of citrus fruit trees on your property is an excellent way to add some fragrance and color to the space. However, these are also specially cultivated to be grown inside. Whichever you choose will be sure to give you years of joy.
They look kinda funky, right?
