I’m heading to Sydney to work!

australian 400 work visa

I’ve got my Temporary Work (Subclass 400) Visa from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection of Australia and I’ll be there for about a week! πŸ˜€

Australia has gone paperless in their visas though, I wish they still issued proper ones. It costs AUD 185 (about RM 555) to get this class of visa. I had a study/work visa when I was in uni – had to apply for it and there’s a limitation of 20 hours per week. It came just like my student visa (like a US 10 year visa or the front page of your passport) – there’s a photo and the description and it fills up the entire page. It’s awesome if you like to collect passport stamps and visa.

I’m flying to Sydney in an hour! I have Internet access so you can follow me and see what I’m up to in New South Wales for my 7 day working holiday! πŸ™‚

P/S – There’ll be a lot of interesting things for those interested in MasterChef Australia!

  1. Have a good trip to Sydney! It is currently our winter, but it is still quite warm in the mid day. So remember a warm jumper for the colder part of the day =)

    • Yup, I used to live in Melbourne where it’s even worse, weather wise! πŸ™‚

      It’s famously said that Melbourne can have 4 seasons in a day, and I find that especially true in autumn…

  2. Damn it! I’ve wanted to buy you a beer for years now, but I moved away from Sydney last year and am in Adelaide now.

    Have fun, though! If you get some spare time, go to Newtown and stop in at Polymorph for a rad piercing of some kind!

    • No worries mate! πŸ™‚

      We can always catch up when I go to Adelaide! I’m in Australia quite often, I like it there, it’s my favorite country, had fallen in love since I studied there from 1999-2003.

    • It’s a bit of both! πŸ™‚

      I was surprised I need a 400 work visa instead of the regular AUD 20 social visit visa.

    • Yeah, us too! πŸ™‚

      We love MasterChef Australia! I watch MasterChef Canada and US too. I’ve never watched MasterChef Malaysia though due to the dietary limitations. It makes the dishes boring coz you can’t work with all the proteins and you’re limited by halal requirements so you can’t even use wine in your cooking despite the alcohol all being evaporated.
