    Farm work :-)

    Hi there so I came to oz in January on WHV and came back to the UK at the beginning of the month ( bit home sick !) but my plan is to come back in October and do my 3 months farm work so I can apply for my 2nd year visa ! Any one have any tips on where's good to go?! Or anyone who is going to be doing their farm work around about the same time ? ( travelling alone always good to have a buddy !!) Thanks guys !!! X

    WHV Jobs In WA

    Hi, Just a quick background, my partner and I are moving out to Oz on a WHV and will be arriving in Perth in June. We have a few things planned for the first few months and are looking to try and get some of our 'specified work" started around September/October time. I have been looking on backpackers websites for some time now and have failed to find anything completely useful. I was wondering if anyone on here could point me in the right direction for applying for jobs in the Gingin or Perth Hills area although it doesn't specifically have to be there it could be further afield than that. Apologies if this seems a little tedious, would just like some idea of where to look or where to get contacts for applying for jobs as we would like to have some sort of idea what to do when we are there. Kind Regards and thank you for your time
  4. Hi Guys, I have been regularly visiting this site and reading with interest for the past few months but this is my first time posting a thread. I was wondering if anyone could shed a light on our situation and the best option for us. Basically myself and my partner Quinn are both looking to move to Australia asap (potentially just for 12 months). The problem is that he has already used his 1st working holiday visa and unfortunately whilst he was in australia he broke his leg quite seriously and as a result was unable to complete the 3 months work. So we are left in a position whereby i can get a WHV but he can't get an extension. Am i right in saying there is no scope for extenuating circumstances as he was unable to complete the work due to his injury? Also does anyone know what the terms of a 977 visa are and whether he could actively look for work if entering Australia under this visa? We are trying to avoid the skilled migration route as his occupation is on the list but he hasn't yet got enough experience in his field to apply and we would really like to go before we have children etc. Thanks in advance for your help!!

    2nd Year WHV Advice

    Hi all, I was hoping for some advice, I am currently on my first year WHV, which was activated 27th April 2011. During that time I had to return to the UK as my father became very ill, so I have yet to even start my 88 days specified work in regional Australia. I return to Oz on 11th Jan, and will need to find suitable work to extend my visa. How remote are my chances of suceeding, and being able to secure my 2nd WHV? I would be in the country for 111 days, and would need to work 88 of those. I am however willing to travel any where in Queensland, or NSW, and have both farm and fruit picking experience. Are there any agencies that you would recommend that might help secure 3 months specified work? Also, can someone please clarify what documents are needed to secure the 2nd year visa? I have heard that you need to provide evidence of living in regional Oz by providing bank statements of transactions along with employer references, payslips etc...is this true? Many thanks in advance for your help, it would be greatly appreciated! Dave
