WHV 2nd Year Help Urgently Needed!!!

Sat, 20 May 2017 05:53:48 GMT

I have a bit of a problem and I'm really confused. I've just moved to Mildura to start my three months (or 88 days) work in order to get my second year visa. I'm staying in a working hostel...the hostel itself is fantastic and I think I really got lucky. However, in terms of working I'm finding things a bit of a mine field. I started working yesterday in a juice packing shed, but I only worked for three hours ... [Posted by jameserob - May 19, 21:53]

Working Holiday Visa - Absent from UK for more than 2 Years

Thu, 18 May 2017 21:10:12 GMT

Hello Fellow Travellers! I am currently applying for my Working Holiday Visa for New Zealand and I'm stuck on the last question of the application! I'm a British citizen but I travelled Australia for 2 years and then South East Asia for 5 months. I returned to the UK in February 2017, and the last question asks if you meet the specific requirements for your countries scheme. The united kingdom scheme specifies that you haven't been out of the UK for more ... [Posted by CloClo871 - May 18, 13:10]

Tongaririo Alpine Crossing - a Victim of its own Success

Mon, 01 May 2017 18:48:38 GMT

One of New Zealand's greatest one-day treks through Tolkien's Mordor with a backdrop of Mt Doom is becoming so popular it's no longer a hike in the wilderness. It's quite rightly got such a reputation that it's on visitors' "to do" list before they step foot in the country. Apparently 125,000 people did the walk in 2015 - taking into account the number of days in the year the crossing is walkable, that's almost 1000 per day. ... [Posted by Borisborough - May 01, 10:48]
