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.
Here are the key benefits of Subclass 462 visa:

I would like to thank Visas Avenue for helping us out with Canada PR. When my husband first visited the office, they explained the step-by-step process which helped us in understanding things clearly.Special thanks to Ajay who was constantly keeping us posted with the documents that are necessary for the process.

Visas Avenue has been a pillar of support for us during the whole Canadian PR process. They helped us every step of the way until we got our visas. The approachable staff who understands our needs helped clear all the hurdles. We would like to appreciate Ms. Rajeshwari Vadde and Ms. Jyothi Battala for their who lehearted support, patience and cooperation.
Had the best experience, in terms of agents, of my life so far! All thanks to Vivin, Sharmila and Priyanka, who were there supporting and working efficiently at every stage of the process! Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a no-stress and smooth visa process! Thank you!
Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it's regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them. Finally i got my pr exactly on/before the expected processing time. I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them. Definitely recommended..!!
Mr. Lenin Reddy
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."
