Hey guys I've just finished work on a peach farm in qld. I gave my employer the form to fill in and she said my start and end dates were 24/10/14 and 22/12/14 which is true, but in the actual days worked she entered 91. Has anyone got any idea why she would do this because there obviously not 91 days between those dates?! Would this be accepted as enough regional work? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!!

So it's just a mistake, right? She meant 61, yeah?

And no, this is not enough. You need 88 days.

That's what I first thought, but I asked someone that started a day before me and the day after and they had 92 and 90, weird that she made three mistakes as normally she's pretty spot on!

She must have had a long day then ;)

Did you work massive amounts of overtime.Perhaps every eight hours counts as a day.

Have you considered the obvious & ask your employer?

Or better yet - phone the Australian immigration people. They are the ones who are going to give you a hard time if the form is wrong.

Haha maybe she did just have a long day, it was coming close to xmas! But ye all days were 12 hour+ which is what made me think that you could count 12 hours as a day and a half which would make sense, 1.5*60=90???

Honestly don't think Immigration will look at it like that. Pretty sure they only go by days, not hours. Safe than sorry etc...
