Studend Visa / WHV


I currently have a student visa because I did an exchange with the University of Melbourne and my home university in France for one semester. The problem is that , in order to valid my diploma I have to do an internship that I found in Melbourne but I need to have the Working Holiday Visa in order to work more than 20 hours per week. I would like to know if I have to leave the country to apply for this visa or if I can apply for this here because I have already lived in Melbourne for 5 months now. I think It would be unfair that I have to leave the country just to apply for a visa.

you have to lodge your first WHV outside Australia. You also have to be outside Australia for visa grant.

You do have another option. As the internship is part of the requirement to complete your. Diploma course you can a apply for an Occupational Trainee visa (402). You can then save your WHV for another time.

I did some research about the second option, some websites say that it requires an Australian sponsorship...

That is correct. You will need to discuss this option with the organisation offering you the internship.

I'm going to leave Australia to go to Bali for applying for the working holiday visa and my boyfriend would like to apply for a tourist visa in Bali because we would like to travail after July. Is it possible ??
