Farm/ Regional Work Requirement for Your 2nd Year

The Australian Working Holiday Visa Extension (2nd year) is available to people who have completed three months specified work (construction work including) in regional Australia while on their first year Working Holiday visa. Regional Australia is defined by specific postcodes. You should check the postcode list before starting specified work to ensure it is in an eligible area.

How to Get a Second Year Australian Visa?

  • You have to be between 18 and 30 (inclusive) years old.
  • You must still be eligible for the 1st year visa - no criminal record, no breach of Australian immigration rules, must be in good health.
  • You have completed three months specified work in regional Australia while on your first Working Holiday visa.
  • You can provide evidence of this specified work. Download the Employment Verification Form 1263 here. This must be completed by all the employers you have done seasonal work for during your first 12 months in Oz.

Please note that if you have previously applied for, or attempted to apply for, a 2nd Australian WHM Visa, you need to tell us when submitting your application.

Second Year Visa Cost

  • UK residents and other countries: £315
  • Ireland residents: €365
  • Australia residents: AUD 595
  • Canadian residents: CA $495

The processing time is between 3 working days to 3 weeks after your documents are with the embassy. If you are in Australia and your 1st year visa is about to expire - when we submit your extension application you will be granted a bridging visa until your application is assessed.

Dear Management, I would like to take this opportunity to commend the service we have received during our Skilled Visa process with Visa First, but particularly on the hand delivered service by Amanda Carter. She has been nothing but helpful, informative, responsive and professional. In all our dealings with her she has always taken the time to answer our questions and queries fully and promptly. She has a very friendly and positive attitude making the whole process a positive experience. I think employees and people like her deserve a thank you and more importantly recognition. Hard work, thoroughness and ability are part and parcel of her way of dealing with her clients. Thank you, Laura Magan
