Visas, Immigration, and Trying to Work in Tech/Games

My entire life has been governed by visas and the immigration system - controlling where or what I can study, work, live, travel, and much more. I have found that many employers and organisations do not really understand the limitations or opportunities faced by people dealing with visas - such as rights and restrictions on work, the costs of migration, life as an international student and much more. Here I'll talk about my experiences dealing with visas (as a tourist, international student, and permanent migrant), dispel assumptions about what people like me can or cannot do on a visa, and provide strategies for companies or people to be better at working with immigrants & visa holders.
