Indonesian students will soon enjoy the opportunity to work three to four months in Australia under a student internship program currently being discussed by the two countries, says an official.
“Indonesian high school and university students can work in Australia for three to four months in various fields of work demanded there,” Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Teuku Faizasyah told The Jakarta Post Wednesday.
Australian students, Faizasyah said, could also enjoy the same internship program anywhere in Indonesia after the signing of the internship program.
“The internship program will be further discussed with Australia’s Minister for Immigration and Citizenship Chris Evans who is currently here,” he said.
Evans met Justice and Human Rights Minister Andi Mattalata on Wednesday discussing immigration issues, particularly the plan to have an agreement on the sharing of online immigration database with the aim to strengthen human trafficking monitoring between the two countries.
