Work Visa

what is required: Working on a normal tourist visa is strictly forbidden. In order to collect wages you will need to have a tax file number, which you can apply by filling out the forms available from the Australian Tax Office, also available at post offices and many news agents.

Working Holiday Visas

Holders of this visa can work in a job with each employer for up to six months. This is for applicants aged 18 to 30 from countries that have a reciprocal arrangement with Australia, such as Canada, Estonia, the UK, Canada, Netherlands, Japan, the Republic of Ireland, Finland, the Republic of Cyprus, Italy, France, Malta, Germany, Denmark, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, Norway, or the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

Working Conditions

If eligible, your employer will pay you the same rates of pay and the same work conditions as Australians. The Working Holiday Visa enables those to work with a stay of up to 12 months.

The employer would be required to make tax payments and superannuation deductions, ensure that the work environment complies with Occupational Health and Safety laws and that the employee holds the relevant licences or registration for the job.

Skilled Visas

Workers with skills that are seen as essential to Australia are encouraged to apply for the Skilled Visa. There may be registration or licensing requirements, contact the relevant authorities in Australia for your trade or practice.
