Working Holiday Maker (WHM) program

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

On 19 January 2022, the 6-month work limitation was temporarily relaxed. The relaxation of this condition is currently in effect until 31 December 2022.

This allows Working Holiday Makers (WHMs) to work with any one employer for the duration of their visa without requesting permission.

This applies to anyone in Australia who either holds any kind of WHM visa, regardless of when they arrive, or holds a Bridging visa with condition 8547 imposed.

The Government is reviewing the six-month work limitation arrangements. Any changes will be communicated on our website.

When new arrangements are put in place, work that was carried out before that date will not be counted towards the 6-month period.

Change condition 8547 on my bridging visa

If you wish to change condition 8547 on your bridging visa A or C, you will need to apply for a new bridging visa. Information on how to apply is available at:
