Needed to finish farm work quickly

Applied to stay in one of their share houses when I had just 4 months left on my visa. Moved in that week and found a job packing broccoli. Good app, share house is alright and rent is cheap

Not calculating days correctly

I’m confused by the days counter on this app. According to the government website, “full time” hours is 35+ hours per week, yet when inputting my payslips and filling out the hours counter, it classes anything above 30 hours as full time.

This will lead people to believe they have done more days than in reality. Please address this.

Hi Dreva13,

It does not say that on the immigration website. Please read our guide online and you will see our reasoning.

Additionally, from the immigration page for Specified work for Working Holiday Visa - "Example: While on her second visa, Maria works on a dairy farm milking and other duties. Maria makes an agreement with her employer to work 5 days a week (Wednesday to Sunday) from 4am to 7am and 1pm to 4pm each working day (a total of 6 working hours per day) for 6 months. These hours are considered normal for this role and Maria is paid the correct legal wage. Maria can count every day of work towards the 6 month specified work requirement, which she meets."

Maria is working 5 days a week 6 hours a day, totalling 30 hours a week in this example. Immigration count this as 7 days a week, we have confirmed this with Immigration ourselves. There is no such thing as a 35 hour cutoff, this is probably the most widely spread falsehood in the backpacking community.

Kind regards,
The 88th Day

Fix your calculator!

I have been trying to add my hours and weeks for 30 times and it’s not doing anything! The app is faulty and not working properly! The idea of the app is very good but in reality it’s nearly impossible to track anything.
