Working Holiday Australia Visa untuk backpacker muda Indonesia

Akhir2 ini saya dikontak beberapa mahasiswa yang ngebet backpacking. Entah ke Asia atau negara lainnya. Kabar bahagia nih buat yang mencoba peruntungan di Aussie. Pihak imigrasi Australia dengan Indonesia sedang mengupayakan visa kunjungan yang bisa dipakai untuk bekerja (working hoilday visa untuk usia dibawah 30 tahun masa 12-24 bulan). Sementara ini pihak Indonesia baru membatasi orang Australia bekerja di sektor turism dan mengajar bahasa Inggris. Sedang Australia membatasi pada sektor2 skill tertentu (lihat di link assesment dibawah).

Indonesia secures working holiday visa with Australia

Australia will begin a working holiday visa scheme with Indonesia
which will allow people to holiday and work in either destination.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the two countries have an
agreement which is similar to others already held by Australia.

Senator Chris Evans, the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship,
told the newspaper: "This will facilitate the capacity of young
people from each country to work and holiday in each other's
countries." He added that the scheme will allow young people from
both countries to learn about the other's culture.

Australians visiting Indonesia will be restricted to jobs in tourism,
teaching English or working in a hospital. However, those visiting
Australia on the visa will be allowed to work in several sectors.
Before this arrangement residents were only allowed into the
countries on tourist visas, which meant they could not legally work.
Indonesia and Australia have also entered into a new computer project
which will increase security across the countries' borders.

Australia needs skilled workers: Anyone applying for an Australian
visa should begin by completing the Australian Visa Bureau's online
Australian visa application to see if they meet the Australian visa
