Working and holiday visa for indonesian passport

Hi everyone,

I am french and I plan to apply for work and holiday visa in Australia.
I'm planning to get there toward the end of this year. My girlfriend is indonesian and want to apply to the same visa (or same type of visa, not tourist visa).

I would like to know if it is easy or not for indonesian passport holders to get this kind of visa. Are there some limitation / quotas? My girlfriend is 22, has a 3 year diploma in IT management from university and is currently working in Jakarta. If she applies, what are her chances to get visa?

All info and advices are welcome

Salut,

The working holiday visa application will be easy for you (it's done online, you don't need to prove anything), but a little bit harder for your girlfriend. There are some extra requirements:

- You must hold tertiary qualifications, or have successfully completed at least two years of undergraduate university study.
Tertiary qualifications include the following: Doctoral degree, Masters degree, Graduate diploma, Graduate certificate, Bachelor degree, Associate degree, Advanced diploma, Diploma level qualifications.

- You must have functional English and provide documentary evidence of your English level when you lodge your visa application. Otherwise, you may be refused the visa.

- Government support
You must include a letter of support from your home government with your application.
This letter is issued by the Directorate General of Immigration.
See: Ditjen Imigrasi RI - Bhumi Pura Wira Wibhawa - Halaman Utama

Lastly she may or may not need to undergo a medical.

You can see all these details from here:
Work and Holiday Visa (Subclass 462)

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for answer. Regarding diploma, she has a 3 year diploma so I think it's ok. I hope her diploma is recognized by Australia.

She has good english and may pass IELTS exam when applying.

What I'm the most worried about is money in bank account (will Autralia check her bank acccounts) and quotas (I heard that only a small number of visas for indonesian people are granted each year).

Any advices to make her chances to get visa bigger are appreciated!

Her diploma makes her eligible, and the IELTS should be fine.

They won't look into her bank accounts, but they will want evidence that she has enough funds to support her stay. If you are also going to support her, you should give evidence in her application of your funds, explaining that you will help her too.

I remember that some countries have a limited number of this visa, but I can't remeber for Indonesia To make a good application, she should show her ties to Indonesia, and her intent to leave Australia at the end of her stay.

Hello Sarah,

Thanks for advice!

My girlfriend suggested that she could apply first for tourist visa. Maybe the fact that she came in Australia as a tourist first could help to get work and holiday visa after end of tourist visa?

On another note, I have some members of extended family living in Australia. Do you think they could help in some way (sponsorship...)

Actually, it would look strange for her to come on a tourist visa and then apply for a working holiday:
- I don't know if it's possible since she'd have to get things from home (ie: letter of support from the government)

Yes there is a sponsored tourist visa:
Sponsored Family Visitor visa (Subclass 679)
But the sponsor has to be a relative of your partner.

I guess apart from that, she could always come on a regular tourist visa, but that would mean no working

There is a limit to the WHV visa grants to Indonesians, as follows:

The annual limit on the number of Work and Holiday visas granted to applicants from Indonesia is 100. The annual limit is based on the Australian financial year (1 July to 30 June). For information on the current status of the visa ceiling please contact the Australian Embassy in Indonesia.

That's fromthe DIAC website, at the following link:

Work and Holiday Visa (Subclass 462)

I was also of the understanding that WHV's can only be applied for offshore, but couldn't find where it is specifically stated, apart from that you have to apply for the WHV through the Indonesian Embassy. May be worth calling the DIAC to clarify that one. Suffice to say that with a limit of 100 per year, there is by no means a guarantee of obtaining that visa even if your girlfriend meets the eligibility requirements

Hi everyone,

I sent an email to [email protected]​dfat.gov.au to ask about the current status of the visa limit. I wanted to know if all 2011 visas for indonesian people were already granted and, if yes, is it possible to apply for a 2012 visa.

All I received is an automatic email response that is absolutely not answering my simple question...

Could anyone give me a contact person who could answer this?

Thanks!
