Getting a 2nd Year Working Holiday Visa

Hi,

I am from the UK and am in Australia on a working holiday visa. This visa will expire in February 2014 and I'd like to get a second one.

I will have undertaken the period of work in regional Australia, and will complete a medical, but I am 31 years old. Does anyone know if I will be able to successfully apply with my age issue?

Many thanks,

Becky

Hi beckyrose,

Unfortunately due to the age restriction on the visa you are ineligible. You must be between 18 and 30 years of age at the time you lodge your application. Everything you need to know can be found on the link below. Sorry to be the barrel of bad news!

Working Holiday Visa (Subclass 417)

Hey thanks for getting back to me, does that mean even though I have one visa its like applying for a whole new one? Ie it starts from the application of the new visa?

Unfortunately SonicBlue82 is right. You have to be 30 or younger by the time you apply, also for your 2nd year

OH thats such a shame but we thought that may be the case. My partner is probably going to apply to stay does that mean I could stay but not earn? Is there any way around it?

You could apply for a Visitor Visa which can allow you to stay for up to a year... Visitor Visa (Subclass 600)

BUT seeing as you've just been on a Working Holiday Visa you will probably need to convince them you are in fact returning for a holiday - i.e. you might need to show that you have funds for the length of your holiday, address you'll be staying at when you arrive, return ticket etc.

There is also the possibility of an ETA, but this will only allow you to stay in Australia for 3 months at a time: ETA (Visitor) (Subclass 976)

EDIT: And yes, either of these visas would mean you will not be able to work.

You have to be between the ages of 18-30 when you apply for either the 1st or 2nd WHV.

This means you have to be below the age of 31.......in other words you can apply right up until you are just before your 31st birthday.




"How do I qualify for my Second Year Working Holiday Visa?"

"Getting your second working holiday visa is easy; as long as you're still under 31 when you lodge your application you can get your visa at any time during your first year simply by working for three months - or 88 days - in a specified work role in a regional area of Australia"
