Wow! Thankyou that is all a massive help! So if I was to get my WHV For oz, work for abit, re-new it for another year... In that year of my 2nd WHV could I then go to NZ for a couple of months and enter back into oz with the remaining time on my 2nd WHV!? Or should I maybe visit NZ before going to oz? As I may want to set up in oz for life
Both the first and second WHV are "multiple entry" - that means you can leave the country and come back as often as you want. However, only during the period of one year from when the WHV started. You don't save up the time you're out of the country. So yes, for optimal use of your WHVs, you'd go to New Zealand before starting the second WHV.
awesome thanks. not really sure wether to do nz before or after oz :/ I may want to set myself up in oz too. so do I pay for the visa on application or on arrival?
On application (they'll ask for your creditcard as one of the last steps). The current fee for the WHV is AUD $365, which is 245 pound.
I'm going to be in Sydney for NYE too! Getting my visa sorted this month, you guys got anywhere booked to stay? Thinking of staying at WakeUp hostel!
