I have left Australia for many years and plan to return to Australia for good. However I need to rent a flat first in Sydney, open bank account, transfer money from overseas, get Medicare, open Tax file, get driver licece, and then look for buying a house later etc. It takes time and I need to go back overseas to settle everything from time to time (say back and forth every few months a couple of times)before really settle down. My question is when will I become a tax resident? 
Thank you for your help!
