Australia has announced financial incentives to lure international workers to Australia. Here is an opportunity to receive a refund of the Australian working holiday visa Government fee. The Australian government has announced that working holidaymakers who arrive in Australia before 19th April 2022 can apply for a refund of the Visa Application Charge (VAC) for their WHM visa which currently costs 495AUD. A student visa application currently costs $630, and this refund will apply to both new and returning students. All refunds will be organized post-arrival from the Department of Home Affairs.

From 19 January 2022, WHMs working in any sector anywhere in Australia may continue to work for the same employer or organization without requesting permission
