This Guide to Overseas Employment is a companion guide to the My Guide to Employment for Young People in the Pacific, which was produced by the ILO 1n 2013. Although that book dealt with finding work in your own country, this guide will provide basic information that will help you to understand some of the steps that are required to find a Job overseas

The focus of this Guide is on skilled migration, particularly to Australia and New Zealand, where the rules of immigration can be complicated. The Guide also provides information on labour migration to the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea and Taiwan, where there may be job opportunities for i-Kiribati workers. Many of the opportunities which are accessible to people who are not highly skilled are for temporary work - which is what this Guide focuses on - but remember that temporary visas can sometimes lead to permanent visas (although if you are highly skilled you may be eligible to apply directly for a permanent visa)

The Guide is Intended for graduates, or those who are currently completing their studies and would like to know more about opportunities abroad. In particular, it is specifically focused on current students and graduates of Kiribati Institute of Technology and other technical colleges in Kiribati, and provides Information on employment in trades occupations as well as hospitality and community care. Employment in seafaring and fisheries has specific rules that are not specifically covered in this Guide. The Guide also does not focus on seasonal worker programs

It is important to remember that International labour migration 1 s a complex topic and it is impossible to provide information on everything that might be relevant. Also, migration policies and legislation can change often and therefore it is important to check with the agencies concerned in relation to any maternal provided in this Guide.
