Working Holiday quotas for citizens of Chile and Argentina are now open

On 1 March 2024, a new Working Holiday quota period begins for citizens of Chile and Argentina

For the period 1 March 2024 until 31 August 2024, up to 75 residence permits for citizens of Chile and up to 75 residence permits for citizens of Argentina can be granted under the Working Holiday scheme. Permits will be granted on a first come, first served principle.

When the quota of 75 residence permits under the Working Holiday Scheme for both Chilean and Argentinian citizens has been fully used, no more residence permits will be issued until 1 September 2024 when the next quota period begins.

When 75 Working Holiday residence permits have been issued to both Chilean and Argentinian citizens, any remaining applications will be rejected and the case processing fee paid to SIRI will be refunded. Applicants should note that any fee paid to the representation in their home countries will not be refunded if an application is rejected.
