A Backpackers Guide to Second Year Visa’s in Australia

Australia’s Working Holiday Visa scheme provides backpackers working in Australia with the ability to stay for a second year in Australia while still working to supplement their travels. Backpackers working in Australia need to be mindful that to take advantage of the Second Year Visa Scheme that any work they enter into must be secondary to their main reason of holidaying in Australia. In other words, the main purpose for the backpacker being in Australia is for holidaying not purely working.

Another important consideration for backpackers wanting to get a Second Year Visa is that they can not be employed by the same employer for a period of more than 6 months. This requirement is to ensure not only that Backpackers don’t take jobs from Australian residents but also to prevent backpackers from other countries entering Australia under the wrong visa class.
