Will these jobs help me get my second year visa

You will need to understand the second year visa requirements set by the Australian Government, we suggest you visit http://www.border.gov.au/Trav to understand what you may need. Many of our farmers have employed backpackers before so it’s worth asking the question. Please note that some roles are NOT suitable for backpackers, this is usually noted in the job description.

Are these paid jobs or volunteer roles

Some of our jobs are paid jobs whilst others are purely for volunteers. In many cases even if the role is non paid the advertisers are willing to provide accommodation, meals or similar offerings. You will need to check with the advertiser for clarity on what this role is offering.

Do I need my own insurance?

All properties should have public liability insurance and if they are accepting workers and volunteers then they will have insurance coverage for you should anything happen. Please check with the farmer or property owner if you have concerns.

2nd Year Visa Requirements

If you are looking to stay in Australia for a 2nd year you will need to comply with these requirements.
