Australia and Poland sign work and holiday reciprocal visa arrangement

Minister Cash has announced a reciprocal work and holiday visa arrangement has been signed with Poland. The arrangement will allow 200 Polish and 200 young Australians to holiday, engage in short term work and study in each other’s countries.

The work and holiday visa differs from the working holiday visa as it requires the support of their government and the applicant must hold or be studying towards tertiary qualifications and able to speak functional English. Over the coming months the Australian and Polish governments will work towards the necessary legal and administrative processes for implementing the visa.  The full media release and further information is available Here.



As the Holiday Season is upon us, we find ourselves at YouMoveMe reflecting on the past year and on those who have helped us shape our business. We value our relationship with each one of you and look forward to working with you in the year to come. We wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with Peace and Prosperity.

Work with your hands?

Tradespeople such as Electricians, Plumbers, Plasterers, Mechanics, Welders and Fitters & Turners continue to be some of the most highly regarded occupations for Skilled Migration purposes.

Don’t miss out- find out if you’re eligible for skilled migration to Australia today.



Australian’s can’t deny how important migrants are to their lifestyle and economy. In fact, according to the 2011 Census of Population and Housing, nearly half of Australia’s population were either born overseas or had a migrant parent. In the 2011/12 Migration Year nearly 185,000 people were granted a visa via the Family Reunification or Skilled Migration Schemes, with the majority of these people coming from India, China, the United Kingdom, the Philippines and South Africa.

For 2012/13, there is room for 190,000 (!) such visas to be granted. Skilled tradesmen continue to be in great demand, and despite what our antiquated advertisement says, women no longer need to stay in the home unless they want to. Get in your application for the 2013/14 Migration Year and bring forth your contribution to Australia’s widespread, multi-cultural population now.





We’ve been on the edge of our seats waiting to see what changes would be made to the Skilled Occupation List in the New Migration Program Year which is set for July 2013. Five occupations have been removed from the list. Hospital and Retail Pharmacists, as well as Avionics, Mechanical and Structural Aircraft Maintenance Engineers are no longer eligible to apply for skilled migration.

As usual, Australia continues to target highly skilled tradespeople, and personnel in the medical and scientific fields for skilled migration. For more information, contact us.
