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.

  2. One recent passport photograph (35 x 45 mm, front facial view).
  3. Original passport (valid at least three months longer than your intended stay).
  4. A copy of your flight itinerary with confirmed reservation OR a copy of your airline ticket.
  5. Medical insurance valid in Germany for the duration of your stay.
  6. Proof of sufficient funds (at least € 250 for each month of your stay = approx. AUD 400 per month); evidence of funds may be in form of credit cards, copies of bank statements or an official sponsorship declaration with proof of income of your sponsor.
  7. A self-addressed Express Post Envelope OR a Prepaid Courier Satchel.


The Working Holiday visa for Germany is valid for 12 months. The visa starts from the entry date stated on the application form. You can participate in this Working Holiday Program only once!

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


Hi Liz, Hope you are feeling better, thanks for your e-mail it was a great surprize I was delighted to hear that I have been granted my visa and that I can stay in Oz with my boyfriend Dwayne. We are going into our summer at the moment and the weather is great, I hear ye have a lot of flooding at home peoples houses destroyed and others living in fear of flooding. I hope you do not live near any of the flooding.


Hi Liz, I wanted to thank you for all your work and dedication to our case over the last year.I know that it's your job however I just wanted to tell you that you are good at your job and keep it up. Its so nice to deal with someone so empathic and helpful as you were. Things going smoothly at the mo so thank you.

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.
