Hello,

If anyone has any experience in applying for working Holiday Visas your help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I'm looking at applying for a WHV in Italy or Germany and was wondering if a permanent address was required? My Plan is to travel around and as such won't have a permanent address. Does anyone one know if this will be a problem when submitting the application?

Thank you,

Dan

I have no experience with the Italian or German WHVs specifically but by the Visa's very nature you can travel around the country working (or not) - not to mention you can apply from your home address before even travelling so I can't imagine how a permanent address could be required.

Surely the Application itself makes this clear, no?

Cheers,
Terry

The application asks for where you will be residing. Not sure if it needs to br a residential address or if a hotel will suffice.

Like I said I have no experience with Italian and German applications, but I'm betting that you're way over thinking this. How can you have a residential address in a country you've never even been to?

I've hired dozens and dozens of WHV holders from all over the world in Canada and not a single one had a "real" address.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Terry
