The Working Holiday visa
The Working Holiday Visa is suitable for you if you are under 36 and want to experience Australia. Allows you to stay in Australia for 12 months, with a full time work permit.
You can request it yourself on the Immigration Department website or we can take care of it. It is not difficult, but sometimes a wrong answer is enough to have it rejected or to incur higher expenses to have it approved. If you don't feel safe, feel free to ask us.
Remember that you need to attach a balance to your visa application that proves you have at least $ 5000 for your first time in Australia and the money to buy a return ticket. So let's say around $ 6,000. Which is roughly equivalent to € 3800.
We have been offering this service since September 2018 and 100% of the visas requested by us have been approved!
The visa can be renewed up to two times, as long as it is always requested within the age of 31 and as long as you have worked in the very famous farms. With this visa you can: work full time, study up to 17 weeks, enter and leave Australia whenever you want!
How does it work?
- Work permit: full time
- Study permit: up to 17 weeks
- Employment contract: maximum 6 months in the same company
- Duration of the visa: 12 months + 12 months + 12 months
- How to renew: 88 farm days during the first year
- How to renew it again: 6 months of farm during the second year
- By the age of 36
- The visa is individual, children or partners are not included
In most cases, the visa is approved immediately. In that case you will receive an email directly from the Immigration Department saying: "Immi Grant Number" .
If the Immigration Department wants to know more, you will receive an email that says " Request for More Information ". They may ask you for a medical examination in a partner clinic in Rome or Milan. Which happens if you declare that you have lived for more than three months in a country considered to be at risk. Or they may ask you for a copy of your criminal record or general pending charges if you have declared that you have a criminal record.
In the worst case scenario, the visa can be refused, "Refused", because the final decision is always made by the Department of Immigration. However, we'll make sure that doesn't happen.
The translation of the license
Do you want to buy yourself a van and travel miles and miles on the road? You need a valid driving license for Australia. Your Italian license is valid and in theory allows you to drive in Australia for the first three months.In practice, the laws are different from state to state and in case of checks, a more scrupulous official could fine you To avoid misunderstandings, misunderstandings or incur penalties, it is better to always have a NAATI certified translation with you, carried out only by translators certificates, recognized by the Australian Government.
Further information: "Can I drive with an Italian license in Australia?"
The answer is yes and no. With a temporary visa (tourist, working holiday visa and student visa) your Italian license should be valid for three months down under. However, it is also true that to avoid misunderstandings and possible fines on Australian territory, then you go and explain, it is better to leave organized. With $ 57 before departure, you can save yourself much higher unexpected expenses.
The other options are: apply for an international driving license from your DMV, cost about 70 euros and last one year or convert your Italian license into the Australian one, cost about $ 70 and last three years.
We have tried them all and in our opinion, the translation of the driving license is the fastest, most effective, convenient, economical method!
