Hungary has become the latest country to sign a reciprocal arrangement with Australia, allowing young people from both countries to visit each other’s nations under the Australian Government’s work and holiday visas arrangement.
On 24 February 2016, Australia and Hungary signed a Work and Holiday Memorandum of Understanding, establishing a reciprocal Work and Holiday visa (subclass 462) arrangement between the two countries.
The Work and Holiday visa arrangement was signed in Canberra at Parliament House between the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Peter Dutton and Hungarian Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency Dr Attila Laszlo Gruber.
When a commencement date for the visa has been announced, eligible young adults from Australia and Hungary will be able to apply for this Work and Holiday visa. The deal will be capped at 200 places each year per country and no start date has been set yet. The new arrangement allows people aged between 18-30 to apply.
