Visa Upsets!

I plan to go to Perth for the months of June, July and August from Ireland. Because I'm a student I'll have to work when I'm out there. Thing is, if i get the 12 month working visa i'll forfeit 9 months of it and i'm told i cannot get another visa if i want to go back when qualified. Any way of working with just a tourist visa????

Nope. Not unless you work under the radar which is illegal. Your best bet is either to save the money before you go, or borrow it from somewhere. The euro > dollar rate is still pretty good. Work out your budget and how much money you'll need to survive.

Sorry Kat..you cant. Have had rellies who tried but the government is clamping down big time on the "black economy" as they call it here..

You do realise its winter here in June, July and August and you wont have the "joy" of sunny weather??
