Working holiday visa holders camping out for £10 Australia flights

Tomorrow, on Wednesday, 5th August, 150 one-way Qantas tickets to Australia will be put on sale for just £10 from STA Travel, and dozens of working holiday visa holders have already started camping out.

150 £10 flights to any major city in Australia will go on sale from 8am tomorrow.

In anticipation of the 150 £10 flights to Australia going on sale tomorrow, a number of travellers have set up camp outside STA Travel offices. Anticipation for the tickets is so high that a number of Australian working holiday visa holders have been waiting outside the London Victoria office since Sunday.

However, there might still be time for anyone with a working holiday visa and a sleeping bag to get the best chance for one of the flights, which are set to be put on sale at the eight following STA promotional branches on Wednesday from 8am.

The only requirement for anyone keen to get their hands on a cheap ticket is that they have a granted Australian working holiday visa. The Australia Working Holiday Visa gives young people between the ages of 18 and 30 from working holiday visa eligible countries the opportunity to have an extended stay in Australia for up to 24 months. 

The visa allows you to make your initial entry into Australia no later than 12 months from the date that the visa was granted. The visa permits you to stay in Australia 12 months from the date that you first enter Australia, and you can then leave and re-enter Australia as many times as you wish during your 12 month stay. However, if you depart Australia during your 12 month stay you are not able to recover the period of time you have spent outside Australia.

The Australian Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with their Australia visa applications.
