Australia is planning to expand the ‘Working Holiday Maker’ visa programs to over a dozen countries, including India to recruit workers to regional areas for solving the labour shortages particularly on farms, says the Immigration Minister David Coleman.
The Australian government is in discussion to expand the scheme to include travelers from 13 countries to find workers wanted by regional businesses to work on farms.
The Australia’s ‘Working Holiday Maker Program’ includes the ‘Working Holiday Visa’ and the ‘Work and Holiday Visa’ that is a cultural exchange program enabling young travelers to have an extended holiday and earn money through the short-term employment.
The countries targeted by Australia to expand the work and holiday visa are India, Brazil, Mexico, The Philippines, Switzerland, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Andorra, Monaco and Mongolia.
The Immigration Minister says the government was working on increasing the work and holiday visa conditions in an effort to invite workers into regional areas.
There were around 150,000 people in Australia on working holiday visa in March but the program is on a verge of shrinking over past five years.
Applicants applying for Work and Holiday visa must meet the minimum requirements before a visa is granted including having a functional level of English and must hold or studying towards tertiary qualifications.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
