Call to raise Australia working holiday visa age limit

Tuesday, 26 Dec, 2022 0

Tourism and Transport Forum Australia wants a major change to the working holiday visa.

The peak tourism body said the age eligibility should rise to 50.

The federal government is exploring various ways to address chronic worker shortages across Australia.

The visa is currently eligible for people up to 35 years old.

The working holiday visa provides affordable labour especially in rural areas where there are major worker shortages.

It is popular with backpackers.

Since reopening, 120,000 visas were approved this year.
