Travel to Australia for fully vaccinated eligible visa holders
From 15 December 2021, fully vaccinated eligible visa holders, including Working Holiday Makers (subclass 417 and 462 visa holders) can come to Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. For more information, see Vaccinated travellers.
Applications for a WHM visa can be made online through ImmiAccount.
We are currently processing a large volume of Working Holiday Maker (WHM) visa applications received since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we finalise applications that have not been prioritised due to travel restrictions, published processing times may increase.
We are processing some new and older applications at the same time to minimise processing times for as many applications as possible. Visa applications that contain all required information may be finalised faster than the published processing times.
For more information, see Visa processing times.
