Australia working holiday buzz travelling through Taiwan
The Australia working holiday program is being promoted in Taiwan, where numbers of Australian working holiday visa grants are shooting through the roof this year.
An exhibition celebrating and purporting everything there is to know about an Australian working holiday will be held in Taipei from 22-24 May. The Australia working holiday exhibition is hoping to show off to thousands of young travellers why so many Taiwanese have chosen to go on an Australian working holiday.
Organisers are also going to provide the opportunity for one lucky attendant to win an online competition with the prize being a free tour of and study trip in Australia.
According to Taipei Times, the number of Australian working holiday visa grants for young Taiwanese travellers increased by 2.7 times in the first quarter of this year when compared with the same period last year.
The Australia working holiday program allows travellers aged 18-30 years from selected countries to work and travel in Australia for up to twelve months. The Australia working holiday is a great way to supplement travel around the country, taking in as many sights as possible, as holders can work for any employer for up to six months. If Australian working visa holders feel they have not experienced enough of the vast and beautiful Australian country, they have the opportunity of applying for a second working holiday visa if they have worked in regional Australia in the horticultural or construction industries for three months or more.
If you are interested in applying for an Australian working holiday visa, take the online assessment to see if you are eligible for the visa, as there are specific requirements that need to be met before your visa can be granted, such as your age, health and character.
