Has anyone received a work holiday visa recently? Just wondering 

.

I am guessing they are still being issued

As this was in the media this past week:

An Australian state is so desperate for workers that it's offering bargain basement $17.60 (£10) fares to entice British backpackers to come Down Under. 

The South Australian scheme is a modern twist on the post-war '10-pound Pom' scheme and will see Irish travellers get even cheaper trips to Australia costing just  €10, or $14.90.

The move comes as the battle for backpackers heats up due to worker shortages across the country.

Is this a reduced visa fee or actually a £10 air fare!? A link would be handy!

I read about this earlier this week.

Limited to a few hundred people and you only get the 10 pound airfare if you also book a Trailfinders package at the same time.

Not quite the ten-pound-pom thing then, I knew there had to be catches in it!
