Hello Ieva 😊

To get the visa for Australia you have to be 30 years old or less. I dont know it it is available to citizens of all countries or not. You could call the Australian consulate and ask.

These forums are not busy enough to have duplicate posts Ieva. If you do not receive the answer in this forum I can move the thread to another forum for you later to try to get more replies.

Hi Ieva,

Welcome to TravelBlog.

Here's a couple of links which should give you more info.
Remember though, that if you are working on a tourist visa it will be at your own risk - and probably at a lower wage than you would otherwise be entitled to.

you need to apply for work visas before entering Australia or NZ; you cannot get one after you are already in the country. If you are on an ordinary tourist visa then it is illegal to work whilst in the country. If caught you will be fined and deported. If you enter on a tourist visa and the customs officials suspect you will be working illegally when in the country then you will be refused entry. Reply to this
