Hi all

I'm planning to go to Oz for a working holiday early next year. Never been travelling before so v. nervous like lots of people on here...

I've worked in bars and pubs in UK for years and i'm a personal licence holder for the next 8 years here. Does anyone know if that licence carrys over to Oz or do I still have to do the Oz equivilent??

Thanks in advance for your help

I believe you'll have to do the RSA in Australia.

It is mandatory that you hold a RSA in each and every state in Australia. It is ludicrous that you have to do it in every state but you do and you ned to show it upon starting work. It can be done on line though.
Cheers
