We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Besides that, the Australian Government also add another year for this visa so it now has 3-year program overall, this means that you can extend your work and holiday plan to one more year ahead from the total of two years before.

What advantages you will get through this visa?

You can do any kind of works in Australia, however if you plan to continue to the second and third work and holiday visa, you must work from specified jobs under subclass 462.

You can usually work for a maximum of six months with the same employer.

This visa absolutely allows you to have a holiday in Australia; you can travel to and from Australia as many times as you want while it is valid. 

What is the specified subclass 462 work for the second and third work and holiday visa? 

The applicant must have completed 3 and 6 months of specified subclass 462 work while on the first and second Work and Holiday visa (subclass 462) to be able to meet the requirements for the subsequent year of WHV.

For the second year WHV, you must have undertaken on or after 18 November 2016 whilst for third year WHV specifically, you must have undertaken the work on or after 1 July 2019.

The specified work subclass 462 is the same for both visa program: 

Specified work is work that is undertaken in a specified industry in a designated area, northern or regional Australia, or both.

For the employment to be eligible, you must have been paid in accordance with the relevant industry awards and not underpaid. 

The relevant industries and regions for specified work subclass 462 are: 

  • Plant and animal cultivation in northern Australia and regional Australia;
  • Fishing and pearling in northern Australia only;
  • Tree farming and felling in northern Australia only;
  • Tourism and hospitality in northern Australia only.

Regional Australia for the specified subclass 462 work are: all of Norfolk Island, South Australia, Tasmania and eligible post postcodes in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and Western Australia.

Not only the industries and regions are defined, the primary role, function or activity performed during the employment has also been determined.

We understand that there are many more requirements needed for applying this visa, even though it can now be lodged online, but it may not be as easy as you imagine.

The second and third work and holiday visa may seem straight forward, however this is one of the strictest visa you can apply for.
