Established in 1975 the Australian visa provides people with the opportunity to live and gain employment in Australia. The visa restrictions have been relaxed in recent years to provide any past or present visa holder who has spent a minimum of three months working in Australia to apply for a second visa.  The visa must be validated within one year of being granted the visa and it allows people to stay up to 12 months from the date of first entry, and you can even leave the country and return it will not affect the visa status. If you are in Australia on a work visa you will be entitled to the same pay and work conditions as Australian nationals. You also have the option of leaving the employer at any time and looking for fresh employment. 

These visas are relatively quick to obtain, making them popular with young people travelling before moving on to the next stage of their working or educational lives. There is also a skilled migration visa. The General Skilled Migration (GSM) programme is the only way for skilled workers to emigrate to Australia, but in order to qualify for this visa applicants must first meet the basic requirements for GSM and pass the Australian immigration points test, which scrutinises skill, age, work experience, language and sponsorship requirements. Whilst skilled independent visas are for people who can offer an immediate skills boost to the country and is the most popular skilled immigration process. Skilled sponsored is another route; this is where a skilled worker has family residing in Australia or who is sponsored by an Australian state or territory. Skill shortages are a common way to gain entry into the country; jobs and skills that are in short supply can be filled by people from other countries including the UK.



You can apply for a 12 month working holiday visa for Australia if you are aged 18-30 and come from selected countries like the UK and Ireland. You can apply for any types of jobs in Australia on this visa and there is the possibility to extend, to enter Australia you will need a funds in your bank to support your stay. If you apply for a visa through a sending agency they will usually make the process easier and help with accommodation and job hunting on arrival. This can be the best option if you are traveling solo in Australia, its your first trip away and if you want to make your trip down under easier. They offer structured packages where you might go on a group flight where you'll meet new people and experience the true Aussie experience. You might also like to view our seasonal jobs in New Zealand.



If you are applying for employment independently then you should be able to arrange your own accomodation. Living conditions can be basic too, sometimes dorm rooms but this is a good opportunity to socialise and really get to know people. Other times you might get your own room, kitchen facilities and privacy. The local staff will be really friendly too. You will need to decide how long to stay, a lot of people choose 4 weeks and longer to really settle into a placement but other only stay a short time.
