Re: hi everyone - new to the forum and starting the process now

You can extend your WHV for another year whilst in Australia which'd give you more time to find sponsored employment.

Same(ish) name, different company's, no matter how they try to tell you otherwise.

Definitely won't be able to get an import approval as you'd have owned and used it for less than 12 months.
