Changing from a Visitor Visa Holder to a Working Visa Holder in Australia.
When in Australia on a Visitor Visa, some people decide they would like to stay, and begin working in Australia.

Changing to a Working Visa is often considered, but it is not as easy as that. The person would need to apply for a new type of Visa that did permit working, and often that means leaving Australia to do so.
