I need your advice... Recently I was caught and charged with drink driving in the Uk... Something I am very ashamed about.

It has always been my dream to live and work in Oz. Now having a criminal record for the offence what will this do to my chances of entering Oz??
I know Oz has very strict laws for tourists with criminal records... Have I blown my chances of working in OZ? Will I be allowed to enter Oz again?

Please can you advise me....

Many thanks

You just have to file for the working holiday visa a long time in advance and hope for the best. Yours won't automatically be approved like most are, but if you get them all the paperwork they ask for and give yourself at least 4 months time to get the visa, they might cut you some slack.... good luck!
