International borders remain closed for now, but as the vaccine rollout hits full swing in Australia, travellers can start to get excited about eventually being able to head overseas again soon.

Young Aussies in particular might consider an international escape with a side of money-making to make the most of what's been a difficult 12 months for many people.

At this stage borders will remain closed until at least mid-June, with Qantas CEO Alan Joyce flagging October as a potential restart date for international travel.

“We are now planning for international travel to restart at the end of October this year in line with the day for Australia’s vaccine rollout to be effectively complete,” Joyce said in late February.

Founded in 2008, Global Work & Travel is one of the world's leading work and travel brands and is encouraging Australians to look ahead to when borders might be open and consider their overseas escape but also a potential career path.

If we stay on track, now would be the time to book, to allow at least 6-12 months to arrange the required VISA, background checks, job interviews and travel plans.
