Working holiday quotas for citizens of Chile and Argentina

On 1 March 2024, a new quota period for Working Holiday for citizens of Chile and Argentina begins. VFS Buenos Aires, Argentina and VFS Santiago, Chile open for appointments on 1 March, 9 AM local time (UTC -3).

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 must note that any fee paid to the representation in Chile or Argentina will not be refunded if your application is rejected.
