Working in Townsville

Working in Australia

    There are a number of visas which allow you to work, but most have restrictions about the kind of work you can do. For example:
    ♦ A Tourist Visa will not allow you work at all;
    ♦ If you have a Student Visa and a work permit, you can only work up to 40 hours per fortnight while you are studying;
    ♦ But if you have a Working Holiday Visa, you are not allowed to work for any one employer for more than 3 months.
    Each type of visa has special conditions - make sure you get advice about your particular circumstances.
    Visit the local jobs board for employment options.
