Where do I start with applying for a Working Holiday Visa for Australia and how long does it take? I have heard that certain travel companies can set the wheels in motion but do they put a mark up on the cost of the Visa for this?

Just do it yourself (the actual start page is here, but you'll want to read those other pages with information first). Takes you about half an hour (?) of filling in the forms online (no hard questions, anyone can do it), after which the visa is issued within a week or so. The visa will cost you $185 (AUD; roughly 80 pounds). Any other company would charge you the same PLUS whatever profit they make.

yeh just do it online, really no problem at all!

Im heading to Oz later this year via Asia, so applied for
the 12month working holiday Visa, last week. It was emailed back to me within 2 days. You then get a period of 12 months to enter Austrailia before it becomes invalid.

PM me if you require web link address.

Happy Travels

Thanks for the replies. Now all I need to do is remember to apply for it in time. I'm not going for another 7 months but I'm sure it will come around soon!
