Sea­sonal work op­por­tu­ni­ties

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Save­naca Vakali­waliwa, Canada Hav­ing lived in Aus­tralia and now visit­ing Canada, Fi­jians who are able to se­cure a visa to Aus­tralia and here in Canada, could set them­selves up do­ing sea­sonal work in both coun­tries. From June to Septem­ber, one could be in­volved in pick­ing blue­ber­ries out here and from Oc­to­ber to March, the dif­fer­ent sea­sonal work avail­able in Aus­tralia. The HSBC World Sev­ens se­ries will be be­come even more pop­u­lar given the in­clu­sion of the Sev­ens Rugby in the Olympic Games. One can use the HSBC World Sev­ens Se­ries

as an ex­cuse to ap­ply for a visa to Canada, Aus­tralia and New Zealand and one could be lucky to get a mul­ti­ple travel visa to th­ese coun­tries if you re­quest to make the visit every year. With Canada, once you en­ter the coun­try, even if your visa is only for one week, you can stay up to six months, un­less if your pass­port is stamped “must leave on a par­tic­u­lar date.” Once you get a Cana­dian Visa, you can also ap­ply for a USA Tran­sit Visa, as it is cheaper go­ing through Los An­ge­les than trav­el­ling through Korea to get to Canada. If you are al­lowed a USA Tran­sit visa, it would be a mul­ti­ple travel visa of up to 10 years. Blue­berry farms still need peo­ple out here and the Serevi In­vi­ta­tional Sev­ens to be held here to­wards the end of this month is one way of com­ing out here, if you want to kill three birds with one stone.
