Government considering raising the age limit to 35 for Working Holiday Visas

July 06, 2017

There have been recent reports that the DIBP is raising the age limit from 30 to 35 years of age for candidates applying for a Working Holiday and Work and Holiday visa to Australia.

Presently, the Australian Government is only considering its options and has not made any formal decisions, so the current age limit of 30 years of age remains in place.

Some key factors that need be considered are timeframes, legal requirements, and most importantly, reciprocity from partner countries for Australian citizens must be in place before the age limit can be raised. If the age limit is raised, it will only be applied to passport holders from countries that have made a reciprocal agreement with Australia.


For more information, please refer to the official Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
