Hey Everyone, I applied for my second year visa on the 19th of Dec and haven't heard anything. My boyfriend and I worked on the same farms for the same time and he got his visa approval back straight away. The only question we answered differently was that I had been outside of the UK for more than 6months. Is it because I out this that it is taking longer? We wanted to fly back out on the 23rd of Jan bit worried it will take ages as some people have said they are still waiting 2/3months later? My mum is flying out in the 4th of Feb so I hope I get it! Please help with any other similar stories or why you think it is taking so long? I am really stressing!
jm21 posted a topic in Careers and VacanciesHi all, My wife and I will be moving to Aus next year. She's a permanent resident and I'll either be on a spouse visa or WHV. We've looked at a lot of different types of jobs and we're thinking at least for the first year in AUS that working remote would be a good way to do things. We'll need to recoup moving expenses and really wanted a year just work and figure out our life in Australia. Remote jobs seemed a good way to put away some cash. Just trying to get a bit more info. Seemed like you can get the jobs relatively easily, but maybe that's just the recruitment agencies trying to sell things. Are the jobs really that easy to get? Even on a WHV? What if one of us doesn't have a job, can they come along? If so, how much extra would we have to pay for room and board? Really, any information would be much appreciated at this point. We've found a lot of places to look for jobs but it's been hard finding much about the actual conditions people live and work in. Just that it can be long hours and not much to do besides work.
The Pom Queen posted a topic in Working Holiday VisasIf you are looking for some experience on a cattle station in an isolated location in South West Queensland maybe we can help. The Station Manager would enjoy some company and you'd get some free accommodation and see the real bush. You could give the manager a hand and have a great life experience. The property is located between Bourke in Western NSW and Cunnamulla in SW Queensland on the Queensland side of the border. You'll need your own transport to get out to the station but it would be worth the drive. It's desert and scrub with plenty of wild pigs and kangaroos, emus etc and some beautiful lakes with birdlife. Camp out or stay in the quarters/cottage with the Manager. Stay a short time when passing through or a bit longer if you like. If interested contact Mark by email email@example.com
Not sure if information about the 'Great Australian Outback Cattle Drive' has been posted here before, but thought I would mention it in case anyone was interested. It had been advertised on the Aus Tourist Commission website 'australia.com' but it is not there at the moment. You can google the name as I have given it above and get into the website giving all the details. It was done a few years ago by the South Australia State tourism, now it is a regular event. A fantastic experience for anyone looking for some adventure in the Outback.
