Australia has recently signed Work and Holiday visa agreements with Austria and the Czech Republic. Australian, Austrian and Czech nationals between the ages of 18 and 30 can now apply for Work and Holiday visas (visa class 462). The visas allow for Australian and partner country nationals (Austria and the Czech Republic) to travel, work and study in each other’s countries for short-term stays. Interested Austrians and Czechs must have either completed a tertiary qualification or have successfully completed at least two years of undergraduate study, among other things. Employers may hire individuals on Work and Holiday visas for up to six months.

Austria and the Czech Republic joins 22 other countries that have work and holiday visa arrangements with Australia, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Peru, Poland, Portugal, San Marino, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, the United States, Uruguay and Vietnam.

Australia’s current Work and Holiday program allows foreign nationals to visit for up to one year, during which time they may study for up to four months and work for up to six months for any one employer.
