Hi,

I plan on spending 3 months fruit picking or packing so that I can get the 2nd working holiday visa. I'm in Sydney at the moment. Anyone interested in doing something similar let me know, would be easier than going some place alone. I'm from Ireland.

Just make sure your employers are registered. Otherwise they can't sign the form required for visa no.2

Has this scheme started yet?

I am in Sydney on a WHV. My RTW ticket commenced in Nov 04 but I didn't arrive in Sydney until Dec So am I right in thinking that although my flight ticket will expire beg Nov. I could stay in Australia until Dec 05 and therefore, may be eligible to apply for the 1 yr extension if I fulfill the conditions of the new scheme?

I thought it was coming in in Nov but if I did my fruitpicking or whatever shortly, maybe I would still qualify. I am feeling quite at home here now and would love to extend my stay.

Any thoughts on this?

Cheers

Paul
