    Hello, So i am heading out to Australia from the UK in September however as i turn 31 in January i have been told by a visa company that i need to do my agricultural work before i turn 31 if i want to stay for 2 years.

    Second year visa wait

    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!
  3. I'm moving out of my houseshare in a week and want to find casual farm work (Farm hand? 1 month approx) in Victoria just to try it out. I've heard there's supposed to be good work up in Mildura and Shipperton but ideally I'd want a place in east gippsland, close to the coast. Does anyone know of any farms there with good work? also a few other things :smile: I'm thinking of renting a camper van as accommodation. Have people had good experiences with this - is the typical cost $40 per day or higher? whats the best way to find out about work on a particular farm - just call them up and ask? Any keywords to use to increase your chances? :wink: any other tips for securing farm work? Thanks a ton! :smile:
  4. We need several backpackers to come and work on a mostly citrus farm in exchange for food, accomodation and 2nd year sign off! Work will consist of picking, packing and other general tasks. No experience is necessary, just a good attitude and willingness to work. We currently have four friendly people staying here and are looking to replace several people who have recently finished their 88 days. It’s an easy place to slot right in and feel at home. The farm is based a couple of hours outside of Adelaide. Immediate start is available, please contact me ASAP by email, phone or txt and I can provide more information. Please leave a message if I don't answer the phone. sebfarmwork@gmail.com 0424 719127 Look forward to hearing from you soon, Seb

  6. Hi All, Me and my girlfriend are looking to do our farm work/ Fruit picking and was hoping someone would have some details of people we could get in contact with to get in touch with to start our 3 months work for our 2nd year visas. We are both 22 and from England, we would prefer paid work within the Western Australia, New South Wales or Queensland regions but are willing to travel anywhere to do it. Thanks for any help anyone can give us. Tom
  7. Hi there, Landed in Perth yesterday & whilst I'd love to sightsee all the places I want to visit right now, I'd rather get my regional work out of the way to hopefully secure a 2nd year visa! I know there are tonnes of threads offering advice but not all of it is relevant! If anyone could advise of regional work going (paid) anywhere in Australia as I am willing to travel it would be a great help. Also, any advice on what websites to visit to look for jobs would be good! Thanks Charlie
  8. I'm working at a fairly big farm in QLD, the owner /farmer has offered me a sponsorship if I can find out how I'm going to fit the visa requirements. The job is mainly driving a tractor in season and labour in the off season. Problem is the 457 visa has skills requirements, whats the go from here? Has anyone had any experience attaining a 457 visa through this kind of unskilled vacancy? "No worries" :happy_face_outlaw_s Aaron
  9. is there anyone who has any info or inside knowledge about seasonal or full time farming jobs in Victoria such as the wheat and oilseed rape harvest to begin in mid October? i am a skilled tractor driver and any help would be great.

  14. Evening all :policeman: Just seen on the news the travellers who live at Dale Farm in Essex have had a reprieve from eviction until Friday, so what do you reckon, should they be allowed to stay or should they be booted off? My own personel opinion is that they should be evicted as i dont think it should be one law for a minority and one law for the rest of us. :unsure:
  15. Hi All, Hubbie may be getting a job in Eagle Farm, Brisbane and I have looked via google maps at the area & it looks like an Industrial Estate near the airport. My queries relate to the finding suitable renting accomadation nearby but want the following: 1 - We are looking for a newish 4 bed detached house to rent, arnd the $400-500 pw mark ,somewhere where its not too busy and there are families arnd but its fairly quiet/country life but there are things to do with kids etc. We currently live in Ireland on 1 acre in the country but know that we will have to live in the suburbs for work and to get to know families etc but we will want a nice sized back garden etc as boys used to so much space, wouldwill there be parks,activities nearby 2 - We will prob only have 1 car for a while so hubby would need access to trains/bus stations to get to Eagle Farm as I will prob need the car for dropping kids and probably look for a part time job once we get the kids settled (aged 3 & 5) or he takes the car & I walk the kids to school etc. Would you be able to tell us the time it would take to get to Eagle Farm from all the area's you suggest as he would not want to be over 40-50mins away really. 3 - Somewhere where there are good schools and creches as 5 yr old would be starting pre-sch, 4 - We intend to rent out our house as we have not ruled out comming back in a few years time and from looking at rental sites, most houses come empty and furniture seems quite exp, on average what money would you need to set aside to kit out a 4 bed house or am I better bringing most off my good furniture and buy cheaper stuff for my house to rent here in Ireland ?? I did look on a discount warehouse website yest and to replace my own bed alone cost about $ 2,500, never mind the other 2 bedrms and sitting room, kitchen equipment and so on See the list of questions are endless!!! :confused: I'll stop now and take a breath and see what ye advise, thanks in advance for all your replies.

    Bri Vegas with a 457!

    After crashing and burning (to the sum of $2300) on a Vic state sponsored visa two weeks ago we thought we'd never be free of Indonesia or the UK (actually the UK was looking to be a better bet), but last week I got approached by a coal seam gas company with a job offer that included a 457. To good to be true? Well, kind of. They decided initial job offer was below spec so they suggested I take a better position, based in the Hunter Valley, NSW. Wow. Just as I'm on the verge of accepting they call again with an even better offer, this time based in Brisbane. So I've already spent a week researching rural Newcastle and because we come from a semi-rural area in the UK I know what to look for, but I'm clueless about cities. I do know that I'll be working in Eagle Farm, just next to the airport so what I'm looking for is a suburb near there (preferably no more than 5ks so I can cycle), that is family friendly with open spaces for a 3 year old boy, shops for a 3x year old wife and transport links into the CBD for fun. Can anyone make any justifiable suggestions please? I'm giving out thanks as a reward.
