Working Visas

Work abroad with a working visaIf making money abroad is music to your ears, you’ll want to make sure you hit all the right notes in your job preparation. One of the most vital elements you have to get in place before you head off to work overseas or jet off on a gap year is ensuring you have the right visa to take you all the way up the job scale until you hit the high notes.

Whistle while you work…

If you get set with the right visa, you can finely tune your job search abroad and make sure you’re soon humming along on the road to job success. If you want to doodle about Down Under, score yourself a sought-after Working Holiday Visa and give full voice to all your work wishes. Available for British travellers aged 18-30, a Working Holiday Visa gives you a full twelve months of amazing earning potential, and is on offer for those wanting to visit Australia or New Zealand for up to a year at a cost of around £150. This must be set up prior to travelling and can only be done once, so make the most of the fantastic job opportunities and get in tune with the working world!

Sing while you’re winning…

Get into the working groove in the good old US of A and snap up the chance to get your hands on a prized J1 visa. By far the best way to get hold of one of these tickets to a new life in the free world is to sign up for a job search program, which can smooth the way to a sublime-sounding working visa. Valid for 6, 12 or 18 months, at a cost of USD180, and available for travellers with a British passport aged between 18-38, a J1 visa requires that you have a job role in place and preferably that you are a graduate with 1 year’s working experience. A job program can give you all the advice you need to get with the working beat. You and your employer then fill out the visa forms and next thing you know you’ll be singing from the same hymn-sheet and soaring all the way to the top.

Make sweet music…

Do you want to hit an exotic note on your international job search, on an Asian adventure? In order to get the pitch-perfect job placement in Asia, you will need to sign up with a tried and tested job program, such as a TEFL paid teaching placement, to guarantee your visa. Working visas only come attached to established jobs and courses and otherwise are not easy to come by. For example, you can enter Thailand on a 60 day tourist visa but then need to have your employer extend it so you have an ED visa which enables you to teach for up to a year. If you want to work in India you need an employment visa, again easily available if you join up with an established program offering professional paid internships. You’ll soon be dancing in the streets (or at the very least working in an office…)!
