Candidate FAQ

Regional Work Visa Extension

Does the work at Labour Solutions count for my visa?

Yes it does.

How long do I have to work to get it?

88 days. The government requires that we only count the actual number of days that you work, so for example, if you take a sick day or a holiday, it does not count towards your total visa days. Also, if there is no work for you on a given day, it cannot be included in your number of days worked.

Do weekends count for my visa?

Not unless you actually work that day.

Do I have to work a minimum number of hours each day?

For the purposes of your Visa there is no minimum number of hours.
