Citizens of Australia, Spain to benefit from work & holiday visa deal

Australia and Spain have reached an agreement concerned with reciprocal work and holiday visa arrangement to benefit young professionals.

The agreement will help maximum 500 young professionals from both the countries to enjoy a holiday in the other nation, while they can even engage in work and study on short-term basis. Nonetheless, the new visa is different from a conventional working holiday visa in which the applicants need to gain support from their government, to engage in tertiary-level qualifications and must be able to speak functional Spanish or English.

The immigration minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, said that the agreement will lever up the cultural exchange and helps to reinforce the positively-closed relationship between the two nations. The same was repeated by the deputy, Michaelia Cash, who defined the agreement as an attestation to the productive relationship between the two countries, to advantage young minds who wish to seek a unique cultural experience.

Australia and Spain will be working collaboratively over the upcoming months to execute the essential legal and administrative processes to start offering the visa.
