Australia work and holiday visa rules

How it works

Before 1st of July 2019, it was only possible to extend your Working Holiday for a second year if you completed 88 days (3 months) of work in certain regions and specific job sectors. Now, Working Holiday makers on their second-year visa can extend their visa for another year. To be eligible, you must work in a specified job for 6 months in a specified regional area.

To sum it up, you will need to do 88 days of farm work in your first year to qualify for a second Working Holiday visa. Then you work 6 months during your second year to apply for a third year. The type of work you will have to do to be eligible for the third-year visa are the same as the specified work for the second year visa.

If this is of interest to you, we would like to hear from you – so please contact us.

(Please only enquire if you are from either 417 Working Holiday Visa or 462 Work and Holiday Visa Countries)

Considering a working holiday in australia

Access our safe and secure network


If you are considering a working holiday down under to progress your agriculture or equine career, we would love to hear from you. We have an ever increasing list of safe and trusted farming and equine businesses that are as passionate as you are about their industries. They like nothing more than employing people who can commit to a minimum 6 months and have the desire to learn as much as they can.

 In May 2019 the Australian Government announced significant changes regarding the Working Holiday Visa Programme. One of the changes is the opportunity to work for more than 6 months for the same agricultural employer. This also includes the opportunity to get a third-year working holiday visa under certain conditions.

So if you experienced in agriculture and are considering work and holiday visa jobs in Australia contact DroverAg today.
