    I applied for a working holiday visa in August 2022 and it was granted. I am going to Australia to work for a year next week. A friend told me that I also need to apply for an ETA which I did. it was granted as 3 months and now I realise I don’t need it. can I cancel my ETA and go back to my original subclass 417 visa?

      Hi Fiadhnait,
      as far as I am aware you can’t reverse this and might need to apply for another working holiday instead then.

      Sorry, the ETA is just meant to be if you don’t have another visa. So the recommendation of your friend was wrong.

      Cheers Julian

    hi Fiadhnait. did you find out if you needed to reapply for your subclass 417 visa or was it accepted? I also have made the same mistake.
