1. Sign up
If you’re a U.S. citizen age 18 to 30, you should be good to go! We can get you started in Australia anytime throughout the year.
2. Get your visa and flights
You will need to have a legal permit to work in Australia, and this is called a Work and Holiday Visa. We will show you where to get this (it’s online!) and if you have questions about the process we’re available.
Once you know when you want to arrive, you can book your flights. We suggest doing this after your visa is confirmed just to be safe, but some people buy flights in advance. If you’re participating on a Welcome Week, be sure to check out the specific start dates for Melbourne and Sydney. If you’re not, you can arrive any day.
