Working in Australia

 

Working in Australia

 

There are different ways to get to work in Australia:

Work and Holiday Visa, Student Visa, Sponsored Visa, room and board, undeclared work.

 

Undeclared work in Australia

Tip 1: Take a look on Gumtree for the offered jobs in your area.

Tip 2: Don’t tell the world you’re doing undeclared work! (for example, don’t post it on facebook or twitter) When the Australian immigration service finds out you’re doing undeclared work without a visa, you’ll be (in most cases) escorted out of the country! Check here what the consequences are for doing undeclared work in Australia and how to prevent getting caught.

Tip 3: Nowadays the Australian immigration service does random checks on farms to see if there are any illegal workers working there. It’s not just in the big cities, but also in the smaller villages and even in the desserts. Keep this in mind!

Tip 4: Jobs like babysitting or cleaning are the perfect jobs. You can hang notes on bulletin boards or look for notes.

Tip 5: Keep an eye on the local newspaper, usually there are small advertisements in it from people asking for help!

Tip 6: A devious way (which of course has its risks) is to tell your employer you haven’t received your TAX file number yet, but you could possibly hand it to him later. Some employers agree to these terms. It’s pretty obvious you can’t work there for long or they’re going to figure out you don’t have a visa.

 

 

(Preventing the) Consequences for doing undeclared work in Australia

When you’ve found a job in Australia, without registration, there’s always a chance of getting caught. The Australian customs is really strict, so (if) they find out you’ll be escorted out of the country immediately. In most cases ,they’ll ban you from entering the country for at least three years. A lot have people have done this before you. In the worst case scenario, they’ll ban you from entering the country for an even longer period of time, if it isn’t permanently.

 

How do you prevent getting caught?

That’s a question that isn’t really easy to answer. The Australian government regularly does these random checks on farms to look for illegal workers. But they could also be having dinner in a restaurant (incognito) or walking around a company. There’s no way to know.

 

Your biggest chance of not getting caught is to work for individuals. What does that mean? You can offer to clean or babysit in other people’s homes. After every shift, they pay you in cash.

 

You really need to remember that when you’re leaving the country temporarily you burn everything that was even slightly related to your undeclared work.

1.Delete all your emails

2.Delete all your text/whatsapps

3.Delete all (written) documents

4.Delete your browser history on your computer/laptop/Ipad

 

PAY ATTENTION!!! When leaving the country temporarily, remember to bring all your baggage with you, unless you can trust somebody enough with your stuff to send it back to you if immigration doesn’t let you back into the country.
