STA Travel Cares

How can we help?

I’ve purchased an Australian Working Holiday Visa- what happens next?

You will receive your visa application form within 48 hours of payment to the email address you provide at time of booking. You should complete this form for your application to be taken forward.

Even if all of the requirements are met, there is still no guarantee that the Working Holiday Visa will be granted as application approval is entirely at the discretion of the Australian Authorities. No refund is due if application for a visa is refused. STA Travel takes no responsibility for travel plans which have to be delayed due to extended processing times.

Processing time: You will receive your application form within 48 hours of payment to the email address you provide at time of booking. Please make sure that your email address is correct. Once you have completed the form it will take at least 4 weeks for your visa to be processed.

The scheme gives Australia Working Holiday Visa holders the right to undertake casual work in order to supplement their travels. Work undertaken must be incidental to the main purpose of holidaying and any employment for more than 6 months with only one employer is not allowed. The application for a first Working Holiday Visa must be made offshore (i.e. not in Australia).
