There are two ways that you can come into Australia. A working holiday visa, or a special program visa.
IAESTE Australia Ltd is a special program sponsor. As a participant of this program you are eligible to enter Australia on a 416 “Special Program” Visa for which IAESTE Australia will sponsor you. As such you will need to contact us 4 months before your traineeship to organise your visa applications, which can then be submitted within the required 3 months time-frame. The application is all through email, and we will assist you with this. For information on visa’s and invitation letters, please contact us here.
The working holiday Visa is only available for some nationalities and only for some Australian employers. Thus if you want to take this option you must first contact IAESTE Australia to make sure it is accepted with the company, as well as contacting your nearest Australian embassy or consulate.
More information for incoming students and current students will be added in the near future however the best way to find out what’s going on and what might be required, get in touch with your local committee! Otherwise feel free to contact IAESTE Australia through the Contact Us page or other email addresses provided throughout.
