FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a visa to come to Australia?
Yes you do! If you’re coming here just as a tourist to visit Australia, you’ll need a Visitor Visa.

If you’re coming here to work while you’re on holiday, you’ll need either a Working Holiday Visa (417) or a Work and Holiday Visa (462), depending on which country you’re from.

You can find more information and a list of the various visas HERE.
How do I apply for a visa?
We recommend organising this as soon as possible.

The application can be completed through your travel agent, or directly through the same Australian Government website as above.

We always recommend checking Australian Government website for any specific enquiries.
If I’m not on a Working Holiday Visa, can I still do the tour?
Absolutely! It doesn’t matter if you’re coming to this beautiful country to work, visit friends or family, study, sunbathe with the kangaroos or perfect your Australian accent.
Will I be part of a group?
Your guided portions of the 4 day trip can run pretty much every day of the week, so we take this opportunity to keep the numbers low for a more personal experience.

There can be up to 5 people in your walking tour group, or it could be just you and your guide exploring the city on your terms for the day.
Which parts of the trip are guided?
With your guide you get a full city walk complete with facts, great food tips and ideas for the rest of your time in Melbourne. You also have your personal one-on-one session with your guide for work and travel advice
Is my itinerary fixed?
Due to the nature of the 4 day package, sometimes the Explore day may come before your city walk or you can request a ‘relax’ day the day after you land if you’d like. Once you’ve booked we will send over your personalised itinerary, which takes into consideration our varied work week and what the best layout would be for you.
Are there certain days the package can start?
You can fly in any day and we are able to collect you from the airport and then will arrange your 4 days for you from there. You will get an email laying out your plans.
Will the guide collect me from the airport?
We have an Airport Shuttle Service we use to collect you (Make sure to pick the drivers brains about 7/11 and it’s coffee joys). We don’t use buses or taxis, so don’t leave the airport for the bus lanes. Your driver will contact you when you land via WhatsApp.
What happens at the end of my 4 days?
Whatever you want! We will go over what your plans are in your one-on-one session and can get you firmly on the right track. Whether it’s more accommodation in Melbourne, buckling down into work or planning the trip of a lifetime to some of Australia’s top destinations – we will make you feel 100% ready and informed.
How do I begin to get work in Australia?
We will help you with this, including CV assistance, tips and tricks for interviews and our special Employment Guide which has work contacts for various fields all over Australia. This will all be gone over during your one-on-one time.
How much money would you recommend bringing to Australia?
This depends on trip length, your travel style (backpacker or flashpacker) and what you are wanting to experience here in Australia.

According to the Australian Government, you need $5,000AUD in your bank account on arrival if you’re coming on a Working Holiday visa. This is a good savings target if you are wanting to either travel for a month or set yourself up for working and living in Australia after your time with Welcome to Travel.

However, everybody is different and to give yourself the best chance of experiencing as many things as possible in Australia, we would recommend just saving up as much as possible before you come travelling.
What is a Tax File Number (TFN)?
This is basically a personal identity number created for you by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). It is required if you want to work in Australia, so that you can be correctly taxed on your income from day one.

You will provide this number to each employer you have while you are in Australia and your tax will be deducted from your wage accordingly, just as it would be in your home country.
Why do I need a bank account?
If you’re travelling as a tourist for just a few weeks, you don’t need one – a pre-loaded travel cash card will work just fine!

If you’re here for a longer period of time (for example, on a Working Holiday Visa) then it’s highly recommended to open an Australian bank account. Not only will you save a lot on exchange/transaction fees, but employers will only pay wages into an Australian account. It’s also an extremely easy process that we will organise for you.

You can fast-track the whole process by creating a Transferwise account, so that you can already have Australian dollars in your account for when you get here. But don’t worry about all of this now, we’ll explain it all soon!
What is Medicare and how do I organise it?
Medicare is Australia’s health care scheme, which allows Australians and some overseas visitors to access certain health services at little or no cost. Only a handful of countries are eligible to apply for Medicare in Australia, including:

Belgium, Finland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, The Republic of Ireland, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom
