    ccTLDs are bad for SEO, just forget it and get .com or .net

    @OP would this help?

    Code:
    http://www.melbourneit.com.au/help/index.php?faqid=30
    not my site - looking for answer as well for future domains

    keep in mind that most .au domains are .com.au

    I think the question was "how to purchase .au domains as a foreigner" not "are .au domains good for seo?"

    why throw out random comments that have little to do with the thread unless you're just looking to increase post count?

    not sure, I only know what I read

    however private registration should be a way to get around the international requirements

    To register these domains you need a tax id number of ABN. Without it you wont be able to register a .com.au domain. Its a way for the Australia Gov. to keep tabs on everyone using a domain name so at the end of the year you have to explain why you DONT have to pay tax on any money you made from your site. Its another way for them to micro manage every australian to ensure that nobody is getting away with $1 and not paying tax.

    Australia is run by the communists. Even in communist Europe the gov didnt do the things that the AU Gov does. Its amazing.
