Working holidays are a great way to earn money while travelling. Giving you the opportunity to experience life as a local, meet exciting people, enhance your skill set and make your CV stand out. Working holiday visas vary in price and length depending on whereabouts you’re going. To apply for Australia you must be aged between 18-30 for a 12 months visa, with a second year extension available. Canada is 18-30 for 12 months too and New Zealand is 18-30 for up to 23 months. All visas can be secured from £150 up to £500 – but don’t worry we’ll help you work out the best deal for you.
Before you jet off you’ll need to sort out a few things – firstly you’ll need to save up some money, around £5,000 is a safe bet. You’ll need to prove to immigration officers that you have enough cash to sustain yourself until you find a job, and you can afford a flight home. With our job search section we can help you secure a job before you leave. Next you’ll want to book flights, open up a bank account, find somewhere to live and sort out health insurance – all of which we can assist you with.
Once you’re settled in, you can enjoy a life you once dreamt of. You can do whatever takes your fancy, whether that’s taking a leisurely stroll along the beach, scuba-diving amongst coral or bungee jumping off a bridge – it’s entirely up to you.
But as we all know, time flies when you’re having fun. So, if you can’t get enough of the place and you’d like to stay longer, you can get a sponsorship from your employer for an extended stay. Following that you can even apply for a permanent residency. Come on, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone and experience what life really has to offer.
So lets get your started and test the waters, you may never look back!
