Australia's DIBP issues new travel advice to visitors
New travel advice has been issued by the Immigration Department of Australia to the people who are planning a visit to the country on a working holiday visa.

The travel advice suggests the people to be sure of carrying their travel insurance with them before they visit Australia, so that they can meet the expenses of medical treatment, theft or loss of any of their individual belongings or any such event happening during their stay in the country.

According to a spokesman of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, the travel advice suggests that the working holiday makers are liable/subject to the same laws of the work place as Australian workers. These laws outline the basic rights of workers during their stay in Australia. One must make sure to study the information provided in the grant letter of the visa because it has some important and useful information and also the details of contact information of whom to contact, for any problems that might be faced during their stay in Australia.

The list of advice also suggests that working holiday makers have enough finance to support themselves, especially during the time of looking for some work. It is considered worthwhile to check the expenses in Australia and compare it with the home country. This would give an idea of how much money is needed .The travelers are also advised to be conscious of their personal security .This includes being sensible and being aware of any suspicious behavior.
