Australian Government has introduced new measures in response to COVID-19.

Temporary work visa holders including working holiday makers who are employed in critical sectors including agriculture, health, aged and disability care and childcare will be exempt from six-month work limitation with one employer.

Working holiday makers employed in critical sectors who haven’t completed 3 or 6 months of special work required to apply for second or third Working Holiday Maker visa and are unable to return to their home country can apply for COVID–19 pandemic Temporary Activity Visa (subclass 408) and will not incur a visa application charge.

This visa will allow you to remain lawfully in Australia and continue working.

Those who are in Australia with the Seasonal Worker Program whose visas are expiring will be able to extend their stay in Australia by applying for this visa.
