Six-Month Work Limitation Relaxed

Great news for those looking to work overseas! The Department of Home Affairs has relaxed the 6 month work limitation on the Working Holiday Maker program.

This means that Working Holiday Makers can work for one employer for the duration of their visa without requesting permission from the Department of Home Affairs. Additionally, any work carried out before July 1st 2023 is not counted towards the 6 month limitation period.

As a result, Working Holiday Makers can work for an employer for an additional 6 months regardless of whether they previously worked for that same employer before July 1st 2023. This change applies to anyone in Australia who holds any kind of Working Holiday Makers visa, regardless of when they arrive, or a Bridging visa with condition 8547 imposed.
