Australia Working Holiday Visa Information

The Australian Working Holiday visa (subclass 417) is ideal for people aged between 18 - 30 (inclusive) who want to travel to Australia and work to support themselves. This visa lasts for 12 months and allows you to work in any occupation for any employer during your stay in Australia. Check the requirements of this visa or contact us for all the information on 866 772 9245 (local phone based on your current location).

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

I just wanted to thank Visa First for the processing of our application. We were fortunate to have Nicky Andrews assist us with our application. She was immediately helpful from when she first took on my queries. Nicky constantly kept us updated via email and/or phone. When we asked questions she responded immediately. She also helped us track our application when it was being handled by the consulate. I am more than happy to promote your services to others. Many thanks especially to Nicky.
