Working Holiday Visa                                                                                                                    

By making Working Holiday Visa (Subclass 417) applications available, the Australian government has been welcoming Taiwanese citizens between 18 and 30 years old to come and meet their desire to travel in Australia while earning the living with short-term works. You can choose to work in café or restaurants to improve your English or work in farms to experience the authentic lifestyles that are very different from Taiwan and make friends with backpackers from all around the world.

Many of the young adults from Western society would take some time off when encountering intersections of studying or career-changing to travel and seek their dreams. To pursue a distinctive life experience, it often takes a Gapper a year or two, which is widely called Gap Year nowadays. While the working holiday visa is undoubtedly one of the most achievable ways for young adults to take this gap year, the developments gained in the said time, including the language capacity and sophistication, will certainly become beneficial for gappers in regards to the prospective career or education. 

 For working holiday visa holders in Australia, the employment situation is most often associated with English proficiency. It is believed that it is less difficult for backpackers to land a job if they have enrolled in language courses and improved English capacity. Besides, making connections with school mates from all around the world is not only a chance for you to learn exotic cultures but also a great opportunity for you to build a strong social supporting network in Australia. Hence, it is recommended to the gappers to take a 3 to 4 months English course at the beginning of your working holiday in order to make contacts and familiarise themselves with the environment which is going to great resources for the upcoming travel and job-seeking.
