Occupational Trainee Visa

If you have already applied for a Work & Holiday visa before, you still have the possibility to travel with an Occupational Trainee visa. This is the common visa used for participating in an internship/traineeship in Australia. The procedure is more complex as the companies have to set up a training plan in order to guarantee that you will be educated sufficiently in your field during the internship/traineeship. Moreover, the company needs to ask permission of the Australian consulate for accepting an intern/trainee. Stage-Australia will guide you and the company through this process and will ensure a fast execution. The Occupational Trainee visa allows you to stay in Australia for a maximum of 2 years.

With Stage-Australia you can expect:

  • A  training plan in line with your internship, graduation assignment, or traineeship
  • Professional guidance in putting together your personal documents
  • Information about the visa that is suitable for you
  • 24 hour a day support before and during your stay in Australia 
  • The possibility to extend your visa (subject to certain conditions; please contact a Stage-Australia representative for more information)
