Online applications for Working Holiday Visas

  • Sharebar

There are two different types of working holiday visas to Australia. They are:

  • The Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417)
  • The Work and Holiday Visa (subclass 462)

The one which is appropriate for you depends on the country of your passport. This article explains the information for the Working Holiday (Subclass 417) Visa.

What is the Working Holiday Visa?

The Australian government has agreements with a number of countries that allows young people to obtain a visa which allows them to spend 12 months living, working and having a holiday in Australia. This visa is a great way for young people to experience Australia on a budget.

In some cases, you could be eligible for a second year on your visa if you complete three months of “specified work” in “regional Australia” during your first working holiday visa.

How do I know if I am eligible?

If you have one of these passports and are aged between 18 and 30 (inclusive), you may be eligible for the Working Holiday Visa (417). You can check your eligibility for the 417 Visa here.

For USA passport holders, you are actually eligible for the Work and Holiday (462) Visa, but because you can apply online, the process for you is almost the same as for the Working Holiday 417. You can get started here.

What if I don’t have one of the listed passports?

You may be eligible for a Work and Holiday (462) Visa instead. You can read more about the Work and Holiday (462) Visa here.

What are the requirements?

There are a number of requirements for the Working Holiday Visa. Because these applications can be made online, you do not normally need to provide many documents. To be eligible for this visa, you must:

  • Have a passport from one of the eligible countries listed above;
  • Be aged between 18 and 30 (inclusive);
  • Have sufficient funds to start your trip;
  • USA passport holders must have completed high school.

Can I apply online?

Yes. Our services can guide you quickly and easily through the process.
