    I have a question about the second working holiday visa (subclass 417).
    If for example I apply for this visa after 6 months on Australian territory, does this visa activate and start as soon as it is validated (6 months for the first + 12 months for the second) or will this visa activate automatically at the end of my first WHV (total : 12 months + 12 months ) ?

    Thanks a lot.

      Hi Giu,
      if you apply for the 2nd (same applies to the 3rd) Working Holiday Visa, then it starts after your current Working Holiday visa finishes.
      So you’ll get 12 month + 12 month (or whatever visa period you have for your citizenship).

      In our eyes, if you already know you wanna stay 2 years, apply for the next one as soon as you fullfill the requirements for it.

      Cheers Julian

      PS: This just applies if you are in Australia when applying.

    I’m working in the herb factory as a packer.
    The location of the factory is in Qld, and the postcode is included.
    But in my payslips, the ABN number is different.
    Because I was hired by an agency.
    The agency’s postcode is not included, but it’s just the ‘main office’ which is not the real location of where I work. In this case, does count for my visa? (Even the actual agency’s location also included the area.)

    Your information helped me a lot. Thank you.

      Hi Sejin,
      in that case I would speak to the agency and ask for a lett that states where you actually work and what your actual job is.

      But to be completely safe, I would call the homeaffairs hotline and ask them.

      Thanks, Julian
