Tourism included in occupational trainee visa
Visitoz today announced the widening of the Occupational Trainee Visa to include tourism, hospitality and adventure categories.
VisitOz have been using the Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s subclass 442 visa since June 2011 to allow young people from overseas to fill positions in farming, machinery and agricultural work.
The Occupational Trainee Visa now includes agritourism, farm tourism, rural resort tourism, hotels, resorts, island tourism, general hospitality tourism, rural events organisation and general adventure tourism.
Joanna Burnet from VisitOz said she was extremely pleased with the news which is win-win for travellers and employers
“This will certainly help hotels looking to recruit staff who can stay for more than six months and adventure tourism businesses who need qualified crew for their boats for instance,” she said.
