Work and travel VISAs – For people under the age of 30
If your under 30, you have got it very easy. Basically everyone is able to get a working holiday VISA with no special skills what so ever – as long as your under 30. VISAs are cheep and arrive typically within 3 weeks. Generally, your able to work for one employer for no longer than 6 months.
