Work And Holiday Visa Holders visa Conditions revised
As per the recommendations from the MIA(Migration Institute of Australia), the Department has relaxed the visa conditions implemented to subclass 417 and 462 work and holiday visa holders.
The changes are implemented to assist the applicants with the bush fire recovery.
The changes are that the work and holiday visa holders can work with the same employer for a period of 12 months instead of six months.
The definition of “Specified work” has been revised for work and holiday visa holders to ensure the construction work in a disaster declared area has been captured and also the paid and volunteer work in declared areas of the bush fires will count towards the specified work which is required for the second or third year of 417 or 462 visa holders.
