Ok I know i can apply for a work visa until I hit 31 years old (April 21st) when is the latest I should leave applying for the work visa to recieve it before then?!
I was hoping to be out there the end of this year but housemate moved in with partner so now who i was kind of relying on to look after my place and my cats. Anyway new housemate is moving in soon plus i've had a couple other setbacks.
I need to be realistic and say that it 'may' be the early part of 2013 i go now which is why i'm trying to prolong applying for the w ork visa as then I'll ahve 12 months to use it...
Can someone advise please.....
Thankyou very much
I applied for my Working Holiday Visa on the Oz Immigration Website (http://www.immi.gov.au/e_visa/working-holiday.htm ) on a Thursday night and they had it e-mailed to me by that Sunday...they seem to be pretty efficient...
This visa is for 18-30 y/o so I assume you are safe to apply a week or two before your 31st....
A lot of my mates went through agencies though who were pretty helpful and would be the best to advise...(trailfinders, visafirst, visabureau..)
That's so quick and good to know! I think i'lll probably apply on the Australian Immagration website too.
I'd prefer to prolong it to Mid March but not sure I should chance it.
The best of lunch for your travel adventure when and where are you going if you don't mind me asking?
What matters is the application date; not when they grant it. So you can theoretically really wait till the last day - although they do use the time in Australia to determine the date, so don't wait till midnight!
And of course, there's always a chance of the website undergoing maintenance, or your own internet connection having problems or somesuch, which means that a margin of error of at least a few days would be advisable.
Make sure you use the Immigration site.
I had thought about using one of the agencies, but after a good read on here I realised it was a waste of money!
Immigration website is idiot proof (I used it!) and it took a matter of hours.
