The Australian Government has taken steps towards changing the  Working Holiday visa program  which will not only benefit the applicants applying this visa, but also benefit applicants who are already on these visas. These changes are coming into effect from 1st January 2017.

The following are the changes made for Working Holiday Visa program:

  •        Increase in Age limit: The current rule does not allow applicants above 31 to apply for this visa, which is now increased to 35 years.
  •        Change in work rights: Visa holders who were not allowed to work more than six months with the same employer is changed to 12 months
  •        Reduction in Application Fee: Fee for this visa is brought down to $390 AUD form $440 AUD.
  •        Tax Changes: Tax rate for these visa holders is bought down to 19% from the current rate 32.5%, however the usual marginal rate will apply for income over $37,000 AUD.

To increase and attract huge number of applicants towards this Working Holiday visa Australian government will be spending around $10 million on an international advertising campaign. This visa will also add up the advantages in applying for further visas or permanent residency visas.
