Is that for all qualifying countries?

So far it is for Irish and Canadian passport holders only.

I saw that they will no longer have a maximum 6 months with the same employer rule.

Any details on if there will be visa length changes?

• Work and Holiday makers (subclass 462) will be able to undertake regional plant and animal cultivation work in additional priority areas to become eligible for a second visa.

• Extension of the period a WHM (subclass 417 and 462) may work with the same agricultural employer from six to 12 months.

• Introduction of a third year visa option for WHM (subclasses 417 and 462), who from 1 July 2019 onwards complete six months of regional work in the second year.

• Increase the number of places available for Work and Holiday Maker program (subclass 462) by 
lifting annual caps available to a number of countries participating in the subclass 462 visa program.

These changes require a strict workforce test to be applied to ensure Australian workers are given the first opportunity for work.
