Visa overview
The Work and Holiday visa program encourages people to
people links between partner countries by allowing young
people to have an extended holiday during which they may
engage in short-term work and study.
A Work and Holiday visa allows the visa holder to:
enter Australia within 12 months of the date of visa grant;
stay in Australia for up to 12 months;
leave and re-enter Australia any number of times while the visa
is valid;
work in Australia for up to 6 months with each employer;
study for up to 4 months; and
carry out specified work to become eligible to apply for a
second or third Work and Holiday visa.
Note: Australia applies an annual limit to the number of visas
issued to first Work and Holiday visa applicants from all partner
countries, except the USA. More information is available from
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/what-we-do/whm-
program/status-of-country-caps

Immigration assistance
A person gives immigration assistance to you if he or she uses, or
claims to use, his or her knowledge or experience in migration
procedure to assist you with your visa application, request for
ministerial intervention, cancellation review application,
sponsorship or nomination.
In Australia a person may only lawfully give immigration
assistance if he or she is a registered migration agent or is exempt
from being registered. Only registered migration agents may
receive a fee or reward for providing immigration assistance.
If an unregistered person in Australia, who is not exempt from
registration, gives you immigration assistance they are
committing a criminal offence and may be prosecuted.
Migration agents in Australia
Migration agents in Australia must be registered with the Office
of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (Office of the
MARA) unless they are exempt from registration.
Migration agents outside Australia
Migration agents who operate outside Australia do not have to be
registered. The Department may give some overseas agents an
ID number. This number does not mean that they are registered.
Note: Some Australian registered migration agents operate
overseas.
Migration agent information
A migration agent is someone who can:
advise you on the visa that may best suit you;
tell you the documents you need to submit with your
application;
help you fill in the application and submit it; and
communicate with the Department on your behalf.
If you appoint a migration agent, the Department will assume
that your migration agent will be your authorised recipient,
unless you indicate otherwise.
Your migration agent will be the person with whom the
Department will discuss your application and from whom it will
seek further information when required.
You are not required to use a migration agent. However, if you
use a migration agent, the Department encourages you to use a
registered migration agent. Registered agents are bound by the
Migration Agents Code of Conduct, which requires them to act
professionally in their clients’ lawful best interests.
Information on migration agents, including a list of registered
migration agents, is available on the Office of the MARA website
www.mara.gov.au
You can also access information about migration agents on the
Department’s website www.homeaffairs.gov.au
Exempt persons
The following people do not have to be a registered migration
agent in order to provide immigration assistance, but they must
not charge a fee for their service:
a close family member (spouse, de facto partner, child, parent,
brother or sister);
a member of parliament or their staff;
an official whose duties include providing immigration
assistance (eg. a Legal Aid provider);
a member of a diplomatic mission, consular post or
international organisation.

Part F – Options for receiving written communications.

If you do not appoint a migration agent/exempt person you may

communications on your behalf. This person is called the
authorised recipient.
Authorised recipient information
All written communication about your application will be sent to
your authorised recipient, unless you indicate that you wish to
have health and/or character information sent directly to you.
The Department will communicate with the most recently
appointed authorised recipient as you may only appoint one
authorised recipient at any time for a particular application.

person as if they had been sent to you.

Consent to communicate electronically
The Department may use a range of means to communicate with
you. However, electronic means such as fax or email will only be
used if you indicate your agreement to receiving communication
in this way.
To process your application the Department may need to
communicate with you about sensitive information, for example,
health, police checks, financial viability and personal
relationships. Electronic communications, unless adequately
encrypted, are not secure and may be viewed by others or
interfered with.
If you agree to the Department communicating with you by
electronic means, the details you provide will only be used by the
Department for the purpose for which you have provided them,
unless there is a legal obligation or necessity to use them for
another purpose, or you have consented to use for another
purpose. They will not be added to any mailing list.
The Australian Government accepts no responsibility for the
security or integrity of any information sent to the Department
over the internet or by other electronic means.
If you authorise another person to receive documents on your
behalf and they wish to be contacted electronically, their
signature is required on form 956 or 956A to indicate their
consent to this form of communication.
Note: Electronic communication is the fastest means of
communication available and the Department prefers to
communicate electronically because this results in faster
processing.
