Australia working holiday visas don’t have to be a once-in-a-lifetime thing. You can apply for a second or third working holiday (subclass 417) visa by doing three months of ‘specified work’ in regional Australia during your previous visa. ‘Specified work’ can include farm work and construction in regional Australia, tourism in remote parts of Australia and bushfire recovery work. Find out more here.
Your Australia working holiday visa allows you to work for up to 12 months doing most types of work - from casual backpacker jobs to career-related professional work - anywhere in Australia. You must apply and have your visa approved before you enter Australia, and once approved, you have 12 months to enter the country. You must have submitted your visa application before your 31st or your 36th birthday - depending on your nationality. Check out our visa FAQs for more info on the serious stuff.
