I was just wondering which countries (if not all) you need to have a working visa for? I think I want to work as I travel so I can travel for longer, and really get a sense of living in various countries abroad as a local for a while. I'm just not sure if I'll need one and/or how hard they are to get? I'm planning on travelling around Africa, Asia and Australia.

Grateful for any help. Thanks.

Not sure about Africa and Asia, but the Australia one is easy to get as long as you fulfil the basic criteria (eg. are no older than 30 when you apply; won't be travelling with any dependent children etc etc). For full eligibility criteria and to apply, check out the website (don't bother overpaying through a 3rd party)

You will need a work visa to legally work in all African countries as well, however it is not so easy to obtain - a very long, expensive process.
