Hi there!

I am currently in Australia on my first working holiday visa and I’m in the process of finishing my 88 days in order to apply for my second working holiday. I worked for a shearing contractor for 4 month but only clocked 48 days so I am now working as a farm hand for two different farms in order to fulfil the remaining days.

I am to understand that if you work 38-40 hours a week you can claim your two days off to go towards your 88 days. My question is, because I am working on two different farms in my area, if I worked two 8 hour days on one farm and the remaining three 8 hour days on the other farm, since this is technically a full work week for me am I still able to claim my two days off?

Thanks for any input!

As no-one has come back to you, I thought I'd take a look, although I'm no expert.

The official guidance seems to be here , but I can't see where to go next in terms of where the work is logged and how evidence is provided when you apply for the 2nd WHV. Perhaps someone can help?
