An exchange of ideas and skills always fosters growth and development, especially so, when it transcends geographical boundaries. The immigration offices of Argentina and Australia have comprehended this and in effect, amended their visa regulations.
Australian and Argentinean youth will soon be able to live and work in each other’s countries for up to a year under a new working holiday visa deal struck between the two nations.
Global Visas have reported that the new working holiday visa deal was struck last November. This visa will allow any student or graduate aged between the ages 18 and 30 to have an extended holiday in Australia. They can work in a casual job in the meantime to help pay for their trip.
This practice is already extremely popular among British young people. Thousands of British youth take up the opportunity to travel and work in Australia every year. Brits who obtain an Australian working holiday visa often end up living in Australia for a longer term by finding jobs with companies that can sponsor them for their permanent residency.
Chris Bowen, the Australian immigration minister, is quite pleased about this development that would bring Australia in cahoots with Argentina. About the launch of the agreement Bowen voiced, “This agreement reinforces our mutually beneficial relationship with Argentina, which is based on shared interests, greater economic cooperation, and growing trade and tourism links.”
The mandatory criterion for admission to this working holiday visa however, is that the young people hoping to move to Australia must be able to speak functional English.
