Hi all,

I'm new to this site and hoping that someone will be able to give me some visa advice for my current situation.
I am American and have been on a Working Holiday Visa (462) for the last 9 months. My visa is due to expire on December 1st and I would really like to do some travelling after this date as I have been mostly working while I have been here. My parents are also wanting to visit me in Australia so we can travel together, but wouldn't be able to do so until February.

I have bought tickets to fly to New Zealand on Nov. 27th and from there I am planning on applying online for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) to re-enter Australia as a tourist. I do not have a "no further stay" condition on my current WHV visa.
My return flight back into Australia from NZ is booked for Dec. 4th.

I would really appreciate any advice or experiences others have had with this. I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work, but I am also nervous about not being allowed back into the country especially if my parents have already bought tickets to Australia for February.

Thanks in advance for your help!

-Leah

462 is not working holiday visa, this is a 417. Subclass 462 is a work and holiday visa .Key differences are in the type of specified work that can be undertaken in order to qualify for a second 462, or 417 visa with one notable difference being the availability of Tourism and Hospitality work to 'unlock' a second subclass 462 visa.
It would not cost you much to apply for the visa you have ib mind, so you might as well apply and see what happens.
