Spain has become the newest addition to Australia’s reciprocal Work and Holiday visa arrangement, after being signed at Parliament house earlier this week.

The program will allow up to 500 young people from each country to engage in short-term work and study whilst holidaying in each other’s country.

The agreement differs from a traditional Working Holiday visa, as it requires applicants to have the support of their government, hold or be studying towards tertiary qualifications, and to speak functional English.

‘The reciprocal work and holiday visa arrangement fosters people-to-people links between the two countries, bolstering our already close and positive relationship,’ Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said in his press release.
