Australia Decides To Raise The Age Cap For Immigration From July

Following the commencement of the Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement, the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs confirmed when UK nationals should expect the changes to the subclass 417 Working Holiday Visa.



The age cap will be raised from 30 to 35 on 1 July 2023 and fixed at par with countries with the highest cap, such as Denmark, Ireland, Canada, Italy, and France.

The age cap refers to the maximum age a person is allowed to apply for a Working Holiday visa. According to the regulation, the visa application should be at least 18 years old and below 35 years based on the applicant’s passport and legislative instrument.

The maximum 3-year visa will start on 1 July 2024. Interestingly, the applicants wouldn’t be required to first apply for a specified Working Holiday subclass 417 visa.

Individuals interested in spending more time in Australia and who are reaching the new age cap might be confused between submitting another application now or waiting since there is no guarantee that visa holders will be issued one 3-year visa or if they should go for their second or third visa.

Reports state that UK passport holders will be qualified to receive Working Holiday Visas with a validity of up to three years.
