Eligibility

Postby ugly_betty » Mon, 06 Aug 2007 2:16 pm

Hi,

would like to find out if we are eligible to try-out for Cathay, Qantas etc. Cuz for some they put the requirements as 'right of abode' etc, so not sure.. Didn't think that Qatar can, but found out apparently so, from wat i read from the threads.

So would like to find out maybe, which ones we are not eligible?

Thanks All!!!

Australia is very strict with their jobs. They will only offer jobs to residents or those who have a right to work in Australia. Therefore, you must be a citizen or PR to be able to be hired by Qantas.

Not entirely true; if you are skilled in a number of trades, have six or seven years experience and are under 45 there are a large number of openings. You are most likely right regarding aircrew though.

Plavt,

You are right. But you would probably need to apply for a general skilled migration visa before trying to apply for jobs in Australia. Therefore, you would have the right to work in Australia, but not a confirmed job. The cases of someone being hired and the company applying a work permit/visa for them is very very rare.

haha wah girl you remember my post ah! :)

uglybetty, it depends if you're looking at being based in singapore or not. there are many international airlines that hire foreigners.
but whether you are based in SIN or not is a different story.
like for example, CX has bases in UK, SIN, and of course HK. if you're hired under SIN base, then you don't really have to worry about anything. but if you're being based in HK, then you most probably have to see what are the company's policies and the employment laws of that country.

but if lets say you're interested in the middle eastern airlines, you would be a foreigner based in their country. like EK, EY, they recruit you in SIN, but you'll go to the middle east to work. they'll apply all the necessary documents, work permit etc, for you. so its fine to be a foreigner.

Hi Downtown & rinnuwatanabe,

The other airlines which have cabin crew based in Singapore is CX and UA. But both are regional cabin crew.

Cheers!
