Confirmed! From 1 July 2024, UK Passport holders on a Subclass 417 Working Holiday Maker visa will no longer need to complete any specified work also known as ‘regional work’ to obtain a second or third 417 visa.

Important Reminder: The 6-month work limitation, preventing 417 holders from working more than 6 months per 417 visa still applies to UK passport holders.

Please note some exemptions to the 6-month work limitation are available to some industries and remote areas of Australia.

If your 417 is expiring soon or you wish to remain with the same employer, there are fantastic new visa options for eligible UK passport holders. 

Contact AVIE to discuss your options and available strategies with a Registered Migration Agent.
