Working Holiday Maker (WHM) program

​Visa condition 8547 - ​​​​​​​​​​​​6-month work limitation

From 19 January 2022 to 31 December 2022, the 6-month work limitation has been temporarily relaxed.

Until 31 December 2022, Working Holiday Makers do not need permission from the Department to work for the same employer for more than 6 months. This allows employers to retain trained staff.

We are reviewing arrangements for Condition 8547 / the 6-month work limitation. Any changes will be communicated on our website.​
