Well our time here is drawing to an end, our Working Holiday Visas expire on the 23rd Dec this year and it looks like getting an extension to this is going to be almost impossible without going back to Australia!
We have just discovered that the Working Holiday Visa cannot be extended while we are in the country, we can’t even get the work permit approved. This all has to be done at Home with the British Embassy to approve the final visa.
So we are not sure what we should do, should we end now and get the last bit of travel in before heading home? Should be go through all the red tape to stay in the UK? Should I apply for a ‘Highly Skilled Migrant Visa’?
This decision is made a lot harder in the fact that work here is not great, the company is small minded and cheap (we don’t even have a receptionist to answer the phones – they pay us £15+ an hour to answer the phones – their loss).
I have started a poll – so let us know what you think.
Anyway we will keep you informed of what we choose to do.
