The ‘Working Holiday Maker Program’ is a cultural exchange program that includes ‘Work and Holiday visa (Subclass 462)’and ‘Working Holiday visa (Subclass 417). This program allows the young backpackers (travellers) to enjoy a long holiday in Australia and also earn in the mean time through short-term employment. However, only selected countries are the participants in this program. The member countries are different for both above mentioned working holiday visa categories.
On 31st July 2019, the Immigration Minister of Australia, Mr. David Coleman has announced to expand the Working Holiday Visa program of Australia to include 13 more countries among the participants in this program.
Here is the list of the countries which are to be added in the Working Holiday visa program soon.
Here is the difference between the two popular working holiday visas meant for the backpackers:
Work and Holiday visa (Subclass 462) – This particular visa is issued by the Australian government for 12 months. The work and holiday visa scheme includes mostly the developing nations, i.e. developing countries, such as, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam, Indonesia, China and Bangladesh. It required basic/functional level of English language proficiency from the applicant. In the list of new nations to be included in Working Holiday Maker Program of Australia, most countries including India are developing countries, hence, most of them are likely to be considered under Subclass 462 visa only.
Australian government is planning to extend the program in order to meet the demands for the workers from the regional businesses of Australia, i.e. workers needed to work on farms. Hence, the government wants new foreign workers (entering Australia after expansion of the visa program) to work in the regional areas of the country to meet the labour shortage issues, especially on farms.

Sheer professionalism and dedication is what they stand for. Thank you Visas Avenue for helping me achieve my Australia’s dream. My consultant Ms. Shivangi Arora and her team helped me on each step of the process. A special mention for Mr. Vaibhav Saini who was very approachable and customer friendly and answered all my queries whenever I asked. A big thumbs up to the team and Visas Avenue. Thank you again.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been a good one. Though initially there was some delay due to the case manager being changed, when my case was taken up by Ms. Priyanka Kandwal, the process has been pretty smooth. I would like to thank her and the team for their patience while handling our case and would like to commend their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the rules and regulations of the whole process. I would highly recommend them for the PR application process and already have done so. Wishing them all the best!!
