Australia, one of the largest and most beautiful countries in the world, offers a hugely diverse and exciting environment for work, travel and exploration. The new Work and Holiday visa allows eligible American citizens a stay of up to 12 months in Australia. BUNAC’s Work and Holiday Australia program goes a step beyond this by providing a full range of services and benefits for the duration of your stay. Please feel free to contact BUNAC if you need help deciding which program is right for you.

You are eligible for the 12-month visa if you are aged 18-30, have graduated from high school, and have not yet held a Working Holiday Visa for Australia.

You will need to obtain a 462 Work and Holiday Visa for Australia which will enable you to supplement your holiday funds by working while you travel. BUNAC will send you complete instructions on how to apply for the visa.

For the ultimate Australian experience, head down under with BUNAC! We can help with advice about what to do when you land, bespoke travel insurance, and fun and useful add-ons. With four offices across Australia BUNAC can help you with every aspect of your working holiday in Oz! So much more than just a starter-pack, enjoy BUNAC’s support from sign-up to touch-down back home.
