The Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a temporary immigration visa that allows to combine work to travel and discovery.
The WHV in Australia is perfect for the young between 18 and 30 who desire to live an incredible experience on the biggest island in the world, and have the right to work at the same time! You will be able to travel and discover Port Jackson, dive in the Great Barrier Reef or visit the Kanadu National Park, all of this while studying and earning a living during your stay.
You will of course need to adapt to Australian life, and observe the rules of the country. In the home of kangaroos and koalas, we drive on the left hand side of the road, and you will need to have a French license and an international one. You will not be allowed to work more than 3 consecutive months with the same employer. Several websites (Seek, CarrerOne...) and newspapers offer ads to help you finding the job made for you. You will also have to find an accommodation during the length of the WHV. Until you find a place to settle down for a longer period of time, in an individual apartment or a shared one, you will be able to stay in a hotel, or in a youth hotel, the latest being the simplest and the cheapest solution. Once settled, you will be able to fully enjoy this country full of discoveries and activities!
However, in order to have the right to benefit from the WHV, you will need to fulfill several conditions:
- to secure travel insurance for the length of your stay
- to have a French or Belgian passport valid until the end of your journey
- not to have dependent children
- and to justify enough funds on your bank account to support your needs if required.
All the documents to provide will be listed when you apply for your WHV, which is an online request for a departure to Australia.
Now all you have to do is to pack your bags, and go!
