Work & Holiday Visa
The Work and Holiday Visa/Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a visa that allows young people to travel to AUSTRALIA or NUEVA ZELANDA to broaden their life experience, study and practice English as well as obtain work valuable experience outside of Spain.
The WHV is a result of the bilateral agreements signed between SPAIN and AUSTRALIAand SPAIN and NUEVA ZELANDA to allow holders of the Work and Holiday Visa (WHV) to stay in the chosen country for a period of 1 calendar year and work.
This type of visa gives a unique opportunity to Spanish young people in countries that offer great opportunities such are AUSTRALIA and NUEVA ZELANDA , especially for those who are keen to travel and see the world.
Young Spaniards between 18 and 30 years of age can now travel to AUSTRALIA and NUEVA ZELANDA with a visa that will allow them to stay for 1 calendar year working full time (40 hours/week)* not 20 hours/week as is allowed with the student visa for both destinations: AUSTRALIA and NUEVA ZELANDA
