Hay guys

I am travelling to Perth on the 26th of August from Ireland. I am going with two friends but as they are in a relationship together they are planning to do their own thing while out there. I am planning on doing the regional work first when I get there to obtain my second year visa and would love a buddy to travel with so I am not on my own.

Thanks Leann.

Hey,

I'm arriving in Perth to work there for awhile in early August, as I know next to nobody there it would be nice to make a few connections!

Hi Leanne

I fly from bangkok to Sydney on 7th August and was gonna do the east coast Sydney and Melbourne for a week each before doing exactly as you say heading west to Perth and trying to get my regional work done and out of the way as quickly as possible for my second year visa like fruit picking or something.

I aim to be in Perth by the end of August so that would be great to meet a fellow Irish traveller

ah it would be great to meet people who are looking for regional work or a place to stay to share as I am going out and kind of winging it. :)

No im still in the application process :(

Its taking forever and i was told I would get my card in the commonwealth bank and pick it up in sydney and that your tax file number can only be generated on entering the country which takes up to 10 days?

Im bit worried now if youve got yours already I need to get onto it

Everything I know (including the official ATO documentation on this) tells me that you indeed can only apply for a TFN once you've physically arrived in Australia. I'd be very interested in hearing the details of this not (always) being the case...
