According to Migration Alliance, Australia and Spain are set to sign an agreement regarding the working holiday visa program. This agreement will have each country to allow people that are in the age of 18 to 31, to be able to live, work, and study for 1 year in each other’s countries. Migration Alliance also stated that “Under the Australian-Spanish deal, the visa holders are expected to be able to work full time as long as they don’t clock up more than six months with a single employer. They can also study for up to four months in the same course.”
The applicant must meet the following conditions to be able to apply:
• The visa is not renewable; and applicants must,
• Arrive with A$5,000 (around €3,500).
• Demonstrate “functional” English; and
• Have completed at least two years of a tertiary qualification.
