Looking for work here in Australia whilst on a tourist visa? Well the DIBP may soon be on your tail! A simple check using the VEVO system will lay bare all the details surrounding your visa. A potential employer would need to know your work rights and those approaching employers when perhaps they shouldn’t be may be no different to waving a red flag at a bull, a bull that may soon be on its way.

Remember! The condition on a tourist visa is that you must be a genuine visitor. This means that you are not meant to be seeking employment here. If the DIBP picks up information that you are looking for work your whilst on a tourist visa via a potential employer checking your work rights on VEVO, you maybe risking your visa and possibly future visits to this country. So be careful out there job hunting on visas not designed for that purpose.
