The Working Holiday Visa

What is the Working Holiday Visa?

The Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a temporary immigration visa that allows young people to discover a foreign country for a certain period of time.

This visa is most often for young people aged 18 to 35 years old* and generally lasts one year, renewable once. It is designed to allow you to extend your vacation abroad and discover a new culture, a way of life different from the one you know.

The main advantage of this visa is the fact that it allows you to work locally and finance your stay, but also to study for a certain period of time, which includes language courses.

If you choose to study in Australia, for example, you will have the opportunity to study for up to 17 weeks, which will give you a good basis in English, which you will be able to consolidate throughout your WHV! In Canada, you will be allowed to study for up to 6 months, a great way to enrich your resume before finding a job! Finally, in New Zealand you will also have up to 6 months to learn Shakespeare’s language. If you already have a good knowledge of English, you will also have the opportunity to undertake a short professional course !

A Working Holiday Visa is the guarantee of benefitting from an unforgettable experience while learning a foreign language!

* The age limit varies depending on the country of your choice, do not hesitate to contact us for more information on the country of your dreams!

What are the benefits of a WHV?

  1. An open door to the world. A Working Holiday Visa is a good way to discover a new country and therefore a new culture. If you take the plunge, you will have the opportunity to use your free time to meet new people, discover new places and make this life experience an unforgettable memory.
  2. A phenomenal progression of your language level. There is nothing like total immersion to get your language level off the ground. Many people opt to take a few weeks of English classes at the beginning of their WHV. This is a good way to acquire a solid foundation that will be consolidated throughout your stay.
  3. An enriching professional experience. During your WHV, you will have the opportunity to work in professional fields that may be completely new to you! A great way to do the job you never dared to try or to change your path. When you return to your home country, your future employers will be happy to hire someone with international experience!
  4. And above all… an incredible personal enrichment! The WHV is a personal adventure that will change your way of being in the world and will help you gain in autonomy and maturity.
