australian-working-holidayThere have been whispers for some time, but now finally travelers from Spain and Portugal are eligible for the Working Holiday Visa (462).


The Australian and corresponding governments have signed mutual agreements enabling applicants between the age of 18-31 to travel & work for up to one year.


The expansion of the Working Holiday Visa to include Spain & Portugal is to encourage cultural exchange and closer ties with Australia. The 462 Visa enables successful applicants to stay in Australia for up to 12 months, work in Australia for a maximum of 6 months with one employer, and study for up to 4 months. Please note that successful applicants for the visa must hold a tertiary qualification or have satisfactorily completed at least two years of undergraduate university study.


The opening up of the 462 Visa for Spanish and Portugese citizens now makes it possible for applicants to complete an internship in Australia ! Our service is fully established to cater for applicants from Spain and Portugal who have a strong English level and are motivated to enhance their skills & training in their industry.


We look forward to assisting applicants from these countries with arranging internships and welcoming them to Australia!
