Working holiday fun awaits
Nowadays, it’s trendy for young people to work overseas. Nevertheless, it is extremely essential to get the right visas when working outside one’s homeland. ( Deported from China, August 27)
Many countries provide various kinds of work visas for foreigners.
One very interesting one is the work and holiday visa (WHV) that is offered in New Zealand and Australia.
It is a once-in-a-lifetime visa for people between 18 and 30. It gives young people from around the world the opportunity to travel and work at the same time in New Zealand or Australia for a year.
About 5,000 WHVs from Australia and 1,000 from New Zealand are offered to Chinese.
When your visa is granted, you can go to one of the two countries and start applying for jobs such as a dishwasher, a postman, or a Chinese teacher. You can also work on a farm for free accommodations and food. Landing an office job is hard for WHV holders unless your English is extremely good.
When you have saved some money, you can travel through the country and pick up a new job on the way when the need arises.
I applied for a WHV visa for Australia. My working holiday will start in March 2018. I am looking forward to it. I wonder what job I will find. Kelsey Mo, by e-mail
