WORKING HOLIDAY VISA (Subclass 417)

VISA OVERVIEW

The Working Holiday Visa is a temporary (12 month) visa that gives young adults aged between 18 and 30 an opportunity to experience the Australian lifestyle by allowing them to supplement their travels with casual work and study.


WHO CAN APPLY

Anyone between the ages of 18 and 30 with a valid passport who can satisfy general health and character requirements.


VISA ENTITLEMENTS

The Working Holiday visa is valid for twelve (12) months from the date of first entry and holders are permitted to travel freely to and from Australia during this period. You are entitled to work for up to six (6) months with any employer and undertake up to four (4) months of study or training.

Immediate family members can be included in the application and are entitled to work and study in Australia for the duration of the visa.

At the end of 12 months, you may be eligible to remain for an extended period if you have completed three months specified work in regional Australia.
