Working Holiday Visa Eligibility Update

A raft of amendments made to the Migration Regulations took effect from 1 July 2017. This includes machinery provisions that increase the ‘eligible age’ of a Subclass 417 Working Holiday and Subclass 462 Work and Holiday visa applicant as up to, and including, 35 years of age.

However, as indicated in our February update, the increase to the age limit of 35 years is only available for those countries where Australia has negotiated a similar bilateral age increase. To date, there have been no such bilateral agreements enacted.
