Germany Working Holiday Visa

The Working Holiday Visa Program aims at enabling young Australians to gain an insight into the culture and daily life in the Federal Republic of Germany. The applicant’s primary aim should be to visit Germany; however, to help finance the stay, jobs can be taken up with different employers of the visa holder’s choice as long as the holiday purpose of the stay is being upheld. There is no time limit for the employment as long as the maximum total stay of 12 months is respected.

Note, effective from 01.12.2012 all Australians will be required to undergo a fingerprint scan as part of the application process. Please contact Visa First for more information on the biometric locations, changes in the procedure or register so we can contact you back.
