New regulations concerning the program duration and a new partnership with Switzerland
Until 31 December 2022, holders of 417 and 462 visa can work for the same employer for one full year – within the visa validity dates – instead of the previous 6 months limitation. WHMs will not need to require an employment extension, and people who arrive between 19 January 2022 and 19 April 2022 can apply for a refund of the Visa Application Charge.
In addition, Switzerland has become the 45th partner country for the WHM program, that allows young people aged 18 to 30 to work or study while holidaying. Moreover, the authorities have announced that from 01.01.2022 Australian citizens can enter Switzerland without a visa.
