The Working Holiday visa is for young people who are between the ages of 18 and 31 years of age looking to experience the Australian culture through working and travelling. The visa is temporary and lasts for up to a year. Eligible country passport holders may apply for a second visa. Visa holders are eligible to work for six months with one employer as well as study for up to four months. The visa also grants holders multiple entry to leave and re-enter Australia as long as the visa is valid.
