It is among the most popular work visas and overseas employers as well as Australian employers may sponsor a skilled employee under the Subclass 457 visa for any duration of time between a day and four years. While the skilled worker is in Australia, he / she can also invite family members to study and/or work during their stay in the country.

    • Higher Taxes for Earnings on a Working Holiday Visa

      People venturing to Australia on a working holiday visa will have to pay a much higher tax than the Australians even though they were saved from a big increase in taxes on their income. The Australian Government had planned to amend the tax laws which would result in working holiday visitors paying almost three times more compared to the Aussies. This was met with widespread opposition as it could greatly impact the availability of seasonal workers and decrease the number of working holiday visitors. This forced the government to make revisions to the new policy. With the revisions lessen the tax burden, working holiday makers stand to benefit from a higher take-home pay, but still pay a much higher rate than the residents.
