    Thank you so much for all your helpful tips! I can’t wait to read more of your articles!! I am hoping to go to Australia on a work holiday visa 462 next year in 2022. I have read how you started with a subclass 601 visa and then got a 462 visa.

    I know there is a way to extend my 462 visa for a second holiday visa (another 462 visa by doing specified work). Do you know if you could do a second holiday visa non-consecutively. So I would return home in the states and then could apply to do another 462 a different time.

    Or would my only option be applying for a subclass 601 after I completed my work holiday visa?

      Hi love! I’m not sure — and as rules might have changed with COVID, it would be best to contact the AUS gov or find someone who has done something similar!

    Thank you for sharing your travel experience! Tell me I heard about stories What you can take your family on a trip, move to permanent residence, is it true? If possible, I would bring my family and animals there. My friends also went to America on a work visa and stayed there after graduation. Is it possible to extend a work visa for a second period? In any case, thank you for the selection, this is useful information for me!

      Hi Kip! I wish I could provide more information for you. It might be possible but you’ll definitely have to check with the Australian government and talk to people who have done this. I believe for animals they have to go through a serious quarantine (something like 40 days). I think you can extend a work visa for a second consecutive year as long as you meet the first year requirements.
