Climbing Mountains..... of paperwork
The paperwork is crazy. 56 pages for Matt's application and 50 pages each for the remaining applications.... over 200 pages of almost complete and utter rubbish. Would love to know what they get paid in the offices that hold this kind of power of people.
Overall, though the paperwork is extremely tedious, the experience of working in this beautiful country is worth all the fuss. The things you can see ....many of which we have already... makes every step of the process worth it. Just make sure that, when you plan your own stay like ours, you gather as much info and support as you can along the way. The road to success was never completely unbarred for anybody.... though the journey is worthwhile, it is also tiring at times.
Never give up!!!
