Work Limitations for Working Holiday Makers

working holiday makers

Working Holiday visas are granted with mandatory condition 8547 attached, which limits work with each employer to a maximum of 6 months.

Working Holiday Makers can work for the same employer in Australia for more than 6 months without asking permission if the work is:

  • in different locations and work in any one location does not exceed 6 months

  • in plant and animal cultivation anywhere in Australia

  • in certain industries, including  aged care and disability services, fishing and pearling, tree farming and felling, construction and mining, in Northern Australia only ( postcode specific)

  • natural disaster recovery work

  • in critical sectors, including agriculture, food processing, health, aged and disability care and childcare, anywhere in Australia

  • in the critical sector of tourism and hospitality anywhere in Australia.

In all other circumstances, Subclass 417 and 462 visa holders, must comply with the work limitation of their visas, unless given permission to work beyond the 6 months.

To review your visa options and understand your eligibility, book a consultation with one of our experienced Registered Migration Agents today.
