Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the Australian 6 month holiday visa take to organise?
How long can I stay in Australia on the Australian long term holiday visa subclass 600?
Will I need to have a medical examination?
Health requirements for Australian Long Term Holiday Visa applicants are assessed at the time of application and will vary depending on the country of passport and travel/residence history. Applicants may be required to undergo a chest x-ray and/or a medical examination as part of their visa application under certain circumstances, as well as to declare their health status on the visa application form. The most frequent situations where a chest x-ray and/or medical examinations may be required are cases where:
- You have spent more than 3 consecutive months in the last 5 years in a country considered to be of a very high health risk in terms of tuberculosis;
- Applicants over 70 years of age (Visitor Visa Medical Certificate 70-85) will need to undergo a ‘Fitness to Travel’ examination. You will also need to have health insurance.
- You have been in close contact with a person who has, or has had, active tuberculosis;
- You have had a Chest X-ray which showed an abnormality;
- You are likely to enter an Australian hospital or other health care facility for any purpose;
- You are likely to work in or attend an Australian preschool-aged child care centre (including preschools and creches);
- You are likely to require assistance with mobility and/or incur medical costs or require treatment or medical follow up for a particular disease while in Australia.
NB: If you fall into any of the above cases your visa application will take ut to 8-12 weeks to process from the date that your results are forwarded for assessment. Please do not undergo any health examinations in advance. Health examinations must be performed by doctors and radiologists approved by the Australian Immigration Authorities. Details will be sent to you if necessary at a later stage.

Hi, my Wife is Ukrainian and is living with me in the UK and has a valid residence permit. My Sister in Australia has invited us both to live with her for 1 year and so far I have been granted my 1 year working Visa, tomorrow I will be posting my wife’s 600 form 48r application. I have included my sisters invitation to my wife inviting her to stay rent free for the duration of our visit and have included bank statements from my sister and her husband showing savings over 13000 AUD, I have also included bank statements showing proof of funds over 4000 AUD and have pointed out in a letter that I will be working and can support her further if need be. Does anyone think there will be any problems with this? And.... does anyone know roughly how long it will take to either get her visa or at least get a reply?
Does the 6 month visa allow multiple entry?

Hi Liz, I’ve just arrived in Perth and have to say I was a little bit afraid that it would take a while to settle. I’ve found a job already and am loving it. Thanks for sorting out that apartment for me. You’ve been brill. Sarah
Hi Antonia and Kimberley Just wanted to let you know that my working holiday visa was approved last week! Thankyou both so much for all your help in getting this sorted- I've got no doubt that without your input I'd be destined for the UK's 'undesirables' list! Would have liked to have come down in person but have been flat out trying to organise everything as I fly out early next week, but if you ever make it over to the UK I'd be more than happy to shout a few beers! Thanks again for all your help. Cheers
Hello Kimberly, I just wanted to thank you and Lisa for all your help in my visa process. I really appreciated it. You both made it so easy to get a visa. I had a bit of an "ordeal" until I was directed to visafirst. Alot of people I spoke to before finding out about your company seemed to have no idea - you guys did! So I wanted to thank you. Kind Regards Claire Quodling
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
I just wanted to let you both know that today I received my UK YMS visa. I went to the Consulate General here in Duesseldolf, Germany, last Wednesday and so getting it back today was much quicker than I expected. Thanks for all your help with my application, and thanks to Visa First - much appreciated.
Karen! You intrigue me! I might have to pass through Ireland just to see your smiling face! I'd have to pack a coat and gloves? But, really your kindness is alluring. Bisous, Bradley
