Moving from Canada to work and try and live in Australia?
I just recently graduated from University with a bachelors degree in Communications and will be going to Australia to find work and try and live there and become a permanent resident. Which visa do I need to apply for? I have already used the WHV 457. I plan on staying in Australia and becoming a permanent resident. I have a grandmother, and aunt who live in Australia and many friends there as well. I really need to know the best way to go about this process so that can stay and find work.
