Local Bank Account

Now that you've arrived in Australia, we suggest getting a local bank that is fully compatible with all jobs. TransferWise is great, but some employers don't recognise it to pay you. That's why we've partnered with CommBank!

FAQs

When Can I Go?

Although things are a bit up in the air at the moment with Covid, Australia are still processing visas and taking applicants into the country! This means that you could go as soon as your visa is approved! You'll definitely need to keep an eye on flights as they are regularly changing.

What Jobs Can I Get?

We have a ton of jobs available in a wide range of sectors. At the moment, we are on the hunt for talented individuals in construction, hospitality and health care. Take a look at our available jobs under the 'work' tab. You'll be able to apply for the job after signing up for a free Over2Aus account.

There are also a ton of jobs available that don't make it onto our site - so if you can't find one you like, send us your cv and we'll find a job for you!

Do You Do Working Holiday Visas?

Yup - we sure do! In fact, working holiday visas are the main visa we process! The Working Holiday Visa is typically valid for a year and grants you full working rights during your stay. With that said, you don't have to work and you can use this visa to travel around and see Australia.

Once your one year is up, you typically need to complete 3x months regional work (farm work or other specified work in a regional area of Australia). You can also explore our wide range of student courses and other visas to help extend your stay.

If you find a job during your stay on your working holiday visa, you may be eligible for sponsorship (dependent on your skills, job title, qualifications and various other factors). At Over2Aus, we can assist with the everything - from getting your first working holiday visa, to becoming sponsored at your dream job.

Can I Get PR or Citizenship?

Australia offers a number of residency and citizenship programs for individuals, families and businesses. Permanent residency allows the holder to live in Australia on a permanent basis. Citizenship comes after permanent residency, typically after 4 years of holding PR.
