International students and working holidaymakers who arrive in Australia from today will have their visa application fees rebated.

International students will have the fees waived for eight weeks and 12 weeks for working holidaymakers.

The message from the Australian prime minister is “come on down – move all the way around the country and, at the same time, join our workforce.”

The Australian government wants an estimated 175,000 foreign students and working holidaymakers to come Down Under.

The Working Holiday Maker (WHM) program allows “young adults to have a 12 month holiday, during which they can undertake short-term work and study” (up to 40 hours per week).

Students working (up to 40 hours per week) and being trained in health and aged care would, in particular, be “incredibly helpful” as the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic.
