Australia’s economy and beauty has always transfixed people from across the world. Many people travel to this enticing country every year on different visas. Sometimes people know the exact category of visa for which they should apply for and sometimes they seek help from visa experts for the same. There are many Australian visas, such as- travel visa, business visa, family visa, skilled migration visa, business visa, retirement visa and many more. But, Australian working holiday visa (Subclass 417) and Australian work and holiday visa (Subclass 462) which are commonly known as Australian work visas are the visas which tend to confuse applicants a lot. Though, both of them have different purpose and purport of visit, but their almost alike names make applicant to think twice or may be thrice before applying. |
There are some major differences between the Australian working holiday visa and Australian Work and holiday visa, which every applicant must know. First of all, people who are aged between 18 and 30 years and are from Republic of Korea, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Taiwan, Belgium, Canada, Republic of Cyprus, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Japan, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, and United Kingdom can apply for Australian working holiday visa, whereas Australian work and holiday visa is for people who are nationals of Turkey, Malaysia, Thailand, Chile, Indonesia and the USA.
Secondly, the holder of Australian working holiday visa can apply for a second visa, on the expiration of his visa, whilst it is not the same with Work and holiday visa holders. Another requirement that differentiates work and holiday visa from working holiday visa is territory education. People who want to continue their studies after high school, while doing some job hither in Australia can apply for the Work and Holiday Visa.

- Applicant’s age should be between 18 to 30 years. - Applicant must have a valid passport. - Applicant must have sufficient funds to support himself when he arrives in Australia. - Applicants are also required to satisfy certain health and character requirements in order to meet the visa Criteria.
