Australian Working holiday visas (or a work and holiday visa) can be applied for all international peoples aged 18 to 30-years, or Canadian, French and Irish citizens aged 18-35. Under normal circumstances, you can apply for up to three working holiday visas throughout your life, providing all criteria are met under visa subclass 417, simply called first, second and third working holiday visas.
Each application has a minimum application cost of approximately AUD$485 and must be applied for each other’s succession. Processing times can vary, and each visa has additional eligibility perimeters through each of the three visas.
Basic eligibility for a working visa includes, but is not limited to:
- Stay for a maximum of 12-months
- Applicants must have a validated passport from an eligible country or jurisdiction
- Must not be accompanied by dependant children
- You may work in any State or Territory while on an Australian working visa
After successfully obtaining a primary working visa, you will gain the ability to apply for the second and third working visa in succession.
