New Work and Holiday Visa

VietnamOn 18 March 2015, Australia and Vietnam signed a Work and Holiday Memorandum of Understanding, establishing a reciprocal Work and Holiday visa (subclass 462) arrangement between our two countries.

This arrangement will allow up to 200 young adults from Vietnam and up to 200 young adults from Australia to enjoy a holiday in each other’s country, during which they can undertake short term work and study.

When a commencement date has been announced, eligible young adults from Vietnam and Australia will be able to apply for this visa.

In the coming months, Australia and Vietnam will work closely together to implement the necessary legal and administrative processes to bring this visa into effect. The work and holiday arrangement will not commence until a start date has been agreed by both countries.
