Aust High Commission warns of visa scam
November 28, 2014 4:12 am
There have been some visa scams relating to fake work visa permits for the Seasonal Worker Program and Work and Holiday Visa Program between Australia and Fiji.
Senior Manager Media and Communications Merewalesi Nailatikau says some migration, recruitment and travel agents are producing fraudulent letters or permits intended to look like they have been produced by the Australian High Commission.
Nailatikau says while Australia has invited Fiji to join the Seasonal Worker Program, and the Work and Holiday Visa program, neither of these arrangements has yet been implemented.
This means that, while both the governments of Fiji and Australia are working on these arrangements, no such visas are yet in place for Fijian citizens for these programs.
An announcement will be made as soon as these programs are finalized.
Nailatikau says the High Commission is strongly recommending that potential applicants for visas obtain information and assistance regarding visa applications from our Australian Visa Application Centre service provider TT Services.
