Australia Working Holiday Visas & Packages


Australia is to reduce tax and improve employment conditions for working holidaymakers in a raft of new measures.

Among the improvements are a reduction in working holidaymaker tax rates. 

Working Holiday Makers will also be allowed to stay with one employer for up to 12 months. 

The application charge for working holidaymaker visas will also be reduced!
