How long does it take to get a visa?

It typically takes between seven and ten working days to get an Australian working holiday visa confirmed. Five days of this is administration time at the Australian embassy, two days is admin processing and from there your working holiday visa will be emailed to you immediately. To be safe, giving yourself at least two weeks before you need the visa is strongly advised.

Where should I apply for my working holiday visa?

You can't apply for a working holiday visa in Australia. You have to apply for it before you leave your home country. If it's not granted before you arrive in Australia, you won't be able to work. Find out if your country is eligible for the Australian working holiday visa
