Age Limit Raised For Working Holiday Maker Visas

From the 1st of November 2018 the Australian government will increase the age limit for Canadian nationals applying for working holiday maker visas from 30 to 35 years. Other countries participating in the programme have also confirmed they are in talks with the Australian government to seek similar reciprocal arrangements. On his recent trip to Australia, Irish Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan announced that the age limit would increase for Irish nationals to promote cultural exchange between the countries.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Coveney stated “From 1 November 2018, the age limit for Irish and Australian citizens wishing to avail of the Working Holiday Programme will increase by five years, to 35 years of age.”

“The purpose of this programme is to promote cultural exchange and strengthen people-to-people links by creating opportunities for young people to travel.”

“This extension of the eligible age not only allows a more diverse group of people to avail of this scheme, but also helps to strengthen those links between our two countries even further.”
