Travelling and Working Holidays in Sweden
10 years ago, November 15th 2008 No: 1 Msg: #54625  
Hello All,

I am planning to go to Sweden in June 2009 for 1 year on a working holiday visa.
I was just wondering if there were any Aussies (or non Aussies) here that have been to Sweden on a working visa recently, if they could share their experiences, recommendations etc etc.
Was it hard to receive a working visa?
Is it hard to get a job over there?
I will be staying in Helsingborg where my boyfriend lives, so i have no problem with accommodation, its just i would like to holiday there for a few months, but then to continue staying there for the full year, i would need keep my funds coming in, which means i would need to find work there.
Im also starting a Swedish language course in February that runs for 9 weeks, will this give me an advantage in getting a job over there?

If anyone can provide any information on the above, and maybe some stuff i havent mentioned that you think i should need to know and is relevant, it would be greatly appreciated 😊

Cheers! Reply to this
