Working Holiday Visas (WHV) allow you to be employed during your visit in another country. This means you can supplement your travel funds without leaving the Country. A working holiday gives you the chance to live in a foreign country for a longer time than you would on a vacation. Most working holiday visa allow you to stay in the country up to a year. You will be able to earn money and this type of visa gives you a chance to experience the day to day life beyond what you could as a tourist. Become friends with locals and gain a deeper insight into the culture. Working holiday is a fantastic way to travel abroad and it will be one of your best experience ever!

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.
