Working Holiday Visas

Young people aged from 18 to 30 years old from eligible countries can apply to come to Australia on Working Holiday visas. This arrangement is to promote cultural exchange and closer ties between nominated countries. Young people can visit Australia and support themselves by working for any employer for up to six (6) months and study up to four (4) months.

Generally, people don’t require immigration help for Working Holiday visas, however we do help people currently holding Working Holiday visas apply for the Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa (or 457 Visa).

Contact Migration Agents Melbourne for all your immigration requirements.
