The Australian Department of Home Affairs has announced that Denmark and Italy are the latest countries to have the Working Holiday Maker program extended to:

  • People aged up to 35;
  • Allow up-to 3 years;

Italy and Denmark citizens join the UK, Canada, France and Ireland as the countries with extended Work and Holiday visa arrangements.

From 1 July 2022 the age limit for Italian and Danish citizens wanting to work and travel in Australia will increase by five years – from 30 to 35 years of age. Australian citizens up to the age of 35 will also benefit from reciprocal arrangements with Italy and Denmark.

Australia has previously negotiated arrangements on a reciprocal basis with Canada, France and Ireland to expand the eligible age range for WHM applicants to 35 years.
