A Home Without Rent?
Last Updated On: July 10, 2017 by The Migration Translators
The idea behind the working holiday visa is to allow people to explore and experience Australia, paying their way as they go. Many travellers go about this task the conventional way of finding a job and a place to live within travelling distance of the job, but there are other approaches. House-sitting is a popular service in Australia as in other countries and is often facilitated by agencies charging minimal fees. Most stays are short-term (to cover holidays for example), although some can be for longer, for example to cover a family travelling abroad. Liking animals is often a distinct advantage since people often use house-sitters as a way to avoid having to put pets into boarding kennels. Generally speaking there’s nothing to stop the sitter having a job as well, just as long as their able to take care of whatever other duties are agreed. For those interested in going down this route, it’s particularly important to use a certified translation service for document translation since home owners are generally very eager to check the credentials of the person who will be living in their family home. Using a NAATI accredited translator will ensure that documents are accurate and give the best possible impression.
