I always wanted to meet Australia, but because it is so far and expensive to go only for tourism, I ended up putting off this dream for a long time. In my online research I discovered that it was possible to get a work visa for australia for those who hold a passport of certain nationalities.

As the daughter of a Brazilian and an Italian, I have dual citizenship, and consequently an Italian passport. When I saw that Italy was on the list I almost cried with emotion! I applied for the visa'Working Holiday visa (subclass 417)' online, I paid the fee through the government website and on the same day I received my visa by email.



ZERO bureaucracy!

When I got there, I was a little apprehensive about going through immigration, it all seemed too easy to be true... My turn came and the officer didn't ask me any questions, he checked my passport and my visa was already in their system, I didn't even have to show the email! It really was very easy, and it was true!

I've been living in Australia since December 2014, and I can say that it's a fantastic country both to live and to work in.

Receive a SIM card at your home in España and use unlimited Internet throughout Australia

Are you also tired of only being able to use your cell phone at points that you find Wi-Fi free during the trip? And having to pay per day to be able to use a GPS in the rental car on the trip?

We couldn't take it anymore, especially because we wanted to post real-time photos of our trip on social media. In addition, Google is a great ally to find what we need while on vacation, such as information and places, and you can't just use it where you have Wi-Fi.

So we discovered one of the best solutions to end this problem, that you will no longer have to spend hours of travel in phone stores in the country, speaking an unknown language to get a SIM card. This is one of the tips we love to give our readers: a America Chip.


Write it down: The company sends an international Chip to your home in Spain. When you're on the plane, just change your Brazilian SIM card for this international one. You will arrive in the United States om unlimited internet, using your cell phone at will, as you use in España.


Arriving in Australia, you can use it all day, anywhere. You'll save on GPS rentals, Skype credits, and you'll still be able to use social networks, Google, or search for anything on the internet all day. In addition, you can still call your home to send travel news as many times as you want via WhatsApp or Facetime.
