More Aussies will be Allowed to Live and Work in Great Britain

New visa will give more Australians the opportunity live and work in Great Britain. A new visa deal was being trashed out in response to the migration changes that the British government did two years ago whereby 20,000 skilled people were prevented from applying outside the EU. This has caused a significant drop of 50% less Australians coming to work in the UK. The British Government was concerned that if they make an exception for Australia, it would have to make exception for other Commonwealth nations as well, but Australia insisted to be treated in a special way because of its status and relationship with Great Britain. It was really strict for Aussies to enter the UK and the current British visa system was often called ‘discriminating against Australians’. It is expected that the new policy will be completed for review by a parliamentary committee by the end of this year. Visa First is a leading international immigration consulting company.

The Conditions under the Australian Working Holiday Visa to be revised

Today, the Australian Fair Work Ombudsman announced that the conditions under the Working Holiday 417 visa are going to be revised because of some allegations that the working holiday makers are used as a free labour in regional areas. The working holiday 417 visa is granted to people under 31 to holiday and work in Australia for up to 2 years. Those who want to qualify for the second year working holiday visa, need to provide a proof that they’ve been undertaking work in a regional area and in certain industry for 88 days during the first year. The review of WHM visa will check the issues reported in the specific regions where many workers take temporary job. There were about 2000 requests for help from working holiday makers in the last 2 financial years addressing underpayment in sectors like hospitality, accommodation, agriculture, forestry and fishing. In addition, the Australian Fair Work undertakes investigations in other sectors known to hire a significant number of overseas workers such as horticulture, cleaning and retailing. The purpose of the current review of WHM visa is to ensure all those who work in Australia are treated fairly and that all overseas workers have the same rights as any other worker in Australia.   Visa First is a leading international immigration consulting company.

Working Long Hours: 5 Ways to Improve Your Sleeping Habits as a Travel Nurse

In the medical field, work never stops. Hospitals, ERs and care facilities are open around the clock, and as a travel nurse, you’re probably asked to work swing shifts, night shifts and long shifts, different from week to week and place to place. All these long and shifting hours can wreak havoc on your sleep cycle, which is essential for keeping you healthy and alert on the job. Work the best you can with the schedule you have and improve your sleeping habits with a few lifestyle adjustments. It may take some time getting used to the changes, but the results are worth the effort. 1. Earn an Advanced Degree Adding more work to your already-packed travel nurse schedule may seem counterproductive, but earning an advanced degree or enrolling in an RN to MSN bridge program offered online – discover more here – will give you more clout wherever you work. If you have an advanced degree, you’re not only more likely to earn a promotion or raise, you can also request better hours or transfer to a stable position with more regular daytime hours. If you choose a specialization, you’re even more likely to be attractive to potential employers. Being in demand gives you the ability to pick and choose where and when you work, as a travel nurse or as a nurse with a permanent position. Plus, opting for online courses means you can study when you have the time, no matter the hour. Study on the plane or train. If you stick to your steady sleep schedule, you’ll have plenty of time to study at night on your days off when most colleges are closed. 2. Keep a Steady Sleep Schedule If you regularly work at night, continue to stay awake at night even when you have time off. Staying awake at night is less preferable than staying awake during the day, as the body’s natural rhythms are naturally attuned to sleeping at night. However, changing when you sleep is even more destructive to a sleep cycle than sleeping during the day regularly. If you work...

Connecting Travel with Food: How to Become an International Chef

Becoming a chef is something like becoming an artist. There are hundreds of careers and options, but becoming a top chef is a challenge. You can become a career chef almost anywhere in the world, but there are many advantages to becoming a chef overseas. You don’t have to live in a country for long to gain the advantages of the career. There are both temporary and long-term chef jobs that you can get abroad. If you want to get ahead in the chef industry, try cooking in one of the following environments. Temporary Work Some chef jobs only last a few months, and these jobs are ideal for learning a variety of cooking styles and learning about traditional foods in other countries. You can learn a lot without having to apply for extended visas and deal with other complicated laws. Cruise Ships: On a cruise ship, you have a chance to create some of the most elegant dishes in the world. Cruise ships turn food into art, so if you are looking to land a career in high-fashion foods, then a cruise ship is the ultimate training grounds. Resorts: Resorts in the summer and winter abroad will deliver a wide variety of foods. Learn about cooking hearty foods in the winter and lighter fare in the summer. You can also learn a variety of cooking styles, from the fish and chips variety to high-class foods with the most expensive ingredients in the world. Summer Camps: A summer camp is the best place to start out in cooking abroad. The venue is perfect for learning how to feed a crowd and the timing of dishes. You can learn much about catering and the business of saving money with the right ingredients when you work at a summer camp. Long-term Careers If you want something a little more long-term, you can try for a permanent cooking job. If possible, look to work in places where top chefs from that country work. Even if you have to take a lower position than your qualifications, it is worth it if you get...
