jasonh2015 has indicated that this thread is about Australia

I was reading you are able to extend your visa as long as you have done 3 months seasonal work so you can stay for another year, and was wondering if anyone had taken this option, or beeb refused?

hey There

I'm currently working the harvest in Bundaberg with the eventual goal of extending my stay :) So far there are about 20 people who've done it and had no problems just in the short time that I've been here

I know of alot of people who have come here and not done the fruit picking, then regretted it, so just incase, I'm doing it so I can come back or stay if I decide I want to, and right now, I definately think I want to stay :)

thanks del, it wasnt on offer when my friend done his WHV so hes not happy it is now, i cant see for any reason i wouldnt want to stay, im planning on leaving in Nov so i get there just before summer. Cant stand the UK for much longer, well not so much the country, but my job isnt as fun as it used to be, and ive been putting this trip off for far to long :) thanks for the info!
