    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.
