Working Holiday Maker Visas
On an international holiday and want to stay longer in Tropical North Queensland? A working holiday could be right for you. The Australian Government has strict laws surrounding who can work in the country, so there are a few things you need to know.
If you want to work in Tropical North Queensland you’ll need to apply for a Working Holiday Maker visa before you arrive in Australia. This applies to all kinds of work – full-time or part-time, casual and volunteer.
You must be aged between 18 and 30 when you apply for a visa.
Not all countries are eligible for the Working Holiday Maker visa. You can see the full list here.
You can stay in the country for a maximum of 12 months and are able to work for six months per employer.
If you want to stay even longer, you may be able to extend your visa by another 12 months by working in a regional area – like Tropical North Queensland! Find out more here.
