Great news for those looking to travel and work throughout Australia!
From 1 January 2017, changes to the Working Holiday Visa in Australia will come into effect and it will make the Working Holiday Visa much more attractive.
To put it simply:
- Visa applications will cost less ($390 instead of $440)
- Increase in the age limit of the visa applicant (up to 35 years old instead of 30 – This change is still to be confirmed by Australian Government).
- Workers can stay with the same company for 1 year instead of 6 months – better job security.
- Better tax rate: the tax rate will be reduced from 32.5% to 15% for Working Holiday makers earning less than $37,000. This is a massive improvement and will mean you will have more take home pay in your pocket.
