2. Apply for your working holiday visa
We’ll email you an easy online form to complete. Once filled out and submitted, we'll check over your details, apply for your visa for you, and send you confirmation once it’s been granted. Visas usually take 2-3 days to process, but can take up to six weeks if additional supporting information is required.
3. Confirm your flights and insurance
Once your working holiday visa is approved, start ticking off your to-do list. Check up-to-date travel advice so you know what’s what, then book your travel insurance and flights. Let us know your arrival details so we can book your transfer at the other end.
4. Pay the balance of your trip
The balance for your trip is due eight weeks before departure. We’ll let you know when it’s coming up.
5. Check the COVID requirements
Do you need a vaccination passport, pre-departure tests or are you required to isolate on arrival? Stay on top of the requirements for entering Australia so that there are no nasty surprises, and to help keep everyone safe and free to travel.
