Hi! My name is Edith Kabuya and I found your blog via SWAP website! I'd like to have some information about your experience. I want to go in Australia next year (for work and fun) How long did you wait for your visa? Is Swap a good agency? Simple as that! Ciao!

Hello Edith!
My visa was approved really quickly, I think it was about 2 weeks. SWAP simplifies the application process for you which was helpful. IEP (Swaps partner down under) was really helpful. They saved me hours of frustration and worry and made things like getting a bank account and a cell phone plan easy. IEP sets up events where you can go and meet other travelers, and can help you find a job and place to live. In the end, I found the money I paid for SWAPs membership to be of great value, and so I would recommend it to you.

Any other questions feel free to ask. I'm thinking about making a Q & A section for the blog as I've been getting lots of messages on Facebook and the questions are usually very similar, so keep an eye out for that in the future. And check out my post Prospective SWAPPERS if you haven't already. Have a good one. Andrew
