I will be lodging a visa application to transition from 458 to working holiday (417) visa in September this year. I've already booked my flight and going to lodge my application as soon as I arrive in my home country.
What I know and have done:
I am still in Australia
Fully understood the intention of the visa and its restrictions, most notably 6 months per employer
Work rights and study rights
Arranged health examinations upfront
Created a draft form just to get a feeling of how the visa lodgement work
Can you still lodge 417 working holidays application before your 458 has expired? I will be back home on the 1st of September and I am going to apply for the visa upon the arrival. But my current 458 will still be alive until the following 7th.
How long does Working Holiday visa process normally take? I've applied for a holiday for one month at my current job and I wish to come back on time
