Hi, Just wondering if anyone can clarify something for me. I won't actually get to Australia until February but I am planning on getting my WHV sooner rather than later so that I can make sure I am organised. I think I am right in thinking that even if I applied for it and got it next month I would have 12 months to enter the country before it became invalid. Please stop me if I'm wrong! However, does that still mean that when I enter Australia it will also be valid for 12 months from that date?

Thanks!

That is correct. Valid for first entry for twelve months from the moment it was issued, and then valid for staying in the country for twelve months from the moment that you first entered the country.
