UK Australia Trade Deal & Potential Visas

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone had information regarding potential new visas that would enable UK and Australian citizens to work in each others countries more freely?

I've heard that the working holiday visa will now be an automatic 3 years for UK citizens aged between 18 and 35 without the need to complete any farm work. 

I actually spent a year in Australia on a working holiday visa when I was 25/26 and completed all the necessary farm work to gain a second year visa however due to a few reasons I was never able to apply for my second year and came back to the UK. I am now approaching 30  and with the boarders being closed I was worried I may have missed my chance.

Also would anyone know if the fact I have already held a working holiday visa would I still be able to apply for this new proposed working holiday visa?

 

Thanks 🙂

AFAIK there has been no suggestion of previous WHV holders being allowed to come back and do the extra year.

It’s way too early to know the details … it could take years.
