Down Under!When I went to Austraila, I had to summoned the consolent for cetain visa's within that country for the right to work. It would also suggest to anyone traveling to work. To summoned the government for any special education visa's or special passes to move freely about. The problem is not really getting to another country the problems most times is getting out. Why? We do not stay on top of the current travel arrangements. Some education visa's and work visa's are only good for 45 days some countries it is only good for 6 months. Just depends. Be well prepared from educational variaties.
Worst problem American Chef's have isnot understanding the foreign countries policies for work citizenship and our lack of knowledge. Call a international travel agent in America. Ask many questions. Also, handle your banking before you leave and if at all possible. Take a cell phone and computer.
