Second Working Holiday visa applications may be made from either in or outside Australia.
For second Working Holiday visa applications made outside Australia, working holiday makers must enter Australia within 12 months from the date of visa grant and are permitted a stay of 12 months from the date of initial entry to Australia regardless of whether or not they spend the whole period in Australia.
For second Working Holiday visa applications made in Australia, the length of stay permitted depends on the type of visa held at the time of application. If the applicant holds a first Working Holiday visa when they apply, their second Working Holiday visa will permit them a total stay in Australia of 24 months from the date they first arrived on their first Working Holiday visa. If the applicant holds any other type of visa when they apply, their second Working Holiday visa will allow them a stay of 12 months from the date of grant.

Working holiday makers, who have worked as a seasonal worker in an eligible regional Australian area for a minimum of three months while on their first Working Holiday visa, will be eligible to apply for a second Working Holiday visa.
