Most working holiday visas schemes are under agreements between two countries, because these countries want to encourage travel and the exchange of culture between their citizens. Working holiday visas are usually limited to visitors between the ages of 18-30, although some will accept applicants as old as 35. Some of the working holiday visas place limits on the types of jobs that you can do or the amount of time you can be employed during your visit. The usual types of jobs on working holiday are tourism, hospitality, retail or seasonal industries. But there are plenty of other job opportunities available.

I graduated in Germany as a mechanical technician and went to work for an engineering company. I thought I’m on the right path — but there are some parts of life we can’t control. I wasn’t happy! So I left Germany in 2015 and moved to Vancouver, Canada with the Working Holiday Visa.
The Working Holiday Visa changed my life!
I worked in the Movie Industry. I converted 3 Camper Vans and lived 3 years the so called “Van Life”. As far back as I can remember, there was always the desire to make things. So I founded “Working Holiday Kanada” in 2016 in Calgary Canada. It soon became the biggest German Canada blog, where travelers find free content + videos about the working holiday visa in Canada.
After 2 years in Canada I spent another working holiday in New Zealand and another one in Australia.
While in New Zealand I renamed my YouTube Channel from “Working Holiday Kanada” to “Working Holiday“. At the same time I got the idea for “WorkingHoliday.Blog”. All this happend on a Road Trip through the South Island of New Zealand in March 2018.

After a first holiday in New Zealand in 2015, Julian returned in 2016 for his own working holiday. With more than 10 years in the classic working life, 2016 was the year of change. Starting with one year (364 days) in New Zealand, Julian left the classic career path and has been successfully running his own New Zealand blog ever since. Since 2019 Julian is completely self-employed, travels permanently and explores different countries around the world. His goal is to try out as many Working Holiday countries as possible before the age limit strikes.
