How to count specified work

This section applies equally to both Working Holiday (subclass 417) and Work and Holiday (subclass 462) visas and uses the collective term ‘Working Holiday Maker’ (WHM) visas.

Minimum period

To be eligible for a second WHM visa, you must have carried out at least 3 months of specified work. ‘3 months’ is taken to mean a period equivalent to the 3 shortest ‘calendar’ months of the year, that is, a minimum period of 88 calendar days, including weekends or equivalent rest days during your period of employment.

To be eligible for a third WHM visa, you must have carried out at least 6 months of specified work on or after 1 July 2019.  ‘6 months’ is taken to mean a period equivalent to the 6 shortest ‘calendar’ months of the year, that is, a minimum period of 179 calendar days, including weekends or equivalent rest days during your period of employment.

To meet the requirement for a minimum period of specified work you must complete the same number of normal work days or shifts as a full-time employee in that role and industry would normally work in a 3 month (88 calendar day) or 6 month (179 calendar day) period. You can do this in a variety of ways, for example:

  • working 5 days a week for a continuous period of 3 or 6 calendar months, including on a piecework rate agreement
  • working less than 5 days a week over a period longer than 3 or 6 calendar months, including on a piecework rate agreement
  • working multiple short periods of work in any combination of full time, part time or on a piecework rate, which add up to the equivalent of 5 days a week over 3 or 6 calendar months

You do not need to do your 3 or 6 months of specified work all in one go, or all with one employer. You are free to spread the work over the stay period of your current visa. You can also undertake specified work for longer than the required minimum period.

You cannot complete the specified work requirement in a total period shorter than 3 or 6 calendar months.

Example – Karsten – full time continuous work

Karsten works full-time for a construction company in rural Victoria as a builder from 1 December to 26 February, a total of 88 calendar days. Karsten works 5 days a week (Monday to Friday) for this whole period of time and is paid the correct legal wage. Karsten has met the 3 month specified work requirement.

Example – Kim – Does not meet 3 months of specified work

While on her first visa, Kim works 2 days a week at a vineyard maintaining vines and picking grapes from 1 February to 30 April. The vineyard work is eligible specified work and she is paid the correct lawful wage. The work has occurred over a 3 month period; however, she has not worked the equivalent number of days that would be worked by a full-time worker in a 3 month period. She will need to work a proportionately longer period of part time work to meet the specified work requirement.

Kim has not worked the equivalent of 3 months’ specified work and does not meet the requirement.

Example – Karla – separate periods of full time and part time work

First job – While on her second visa, Karla works 5 days a week in a fruit orchard picking and packing fruit under a signed piecework rate agreement from 1 January to 30 April. This period counts as 4 calendar months (in this case 120 calendar days) towards the specified work requirement.

Second job – Later, Karla does casual work picking vegetables at a market garden for 5 days a fortnight from 1 August to 30 November. During this period of 4 calendar months (in this case 122 calendar days) she has worked half of the usual full time work hours for this employer. This period can therefore count as a total of 2 months (or 61 days) towards the specified work requirement.

Karla adds these 2 work periods together, counting:

4 months (120 calendar days) for the period of full time work
+
2 months (61 calendar days) for the period of part time work of 2 months
=
6 months (which in this case is more than 179 calendar days) of specified work

Karla has therefore worked the equivalent of 6 months of full time work and has met the 6 month specified work requirement.

Circumstances in which specified work must have been undertaken

As a general rule, you must have undertaken all your specified work while holding your previous WHM visa. This means that applicants for a second WHM visa must have undertaken all specified work while holding their first WHM visa, and applicants for a third WHM visa must have undertaken all specified work while holding their second WHM visa, on or after 1 July 2019. This is how most applicants meet the specified work requirement.

A small number of applicants may also be able to count specified work carried out in the circumstances described below.

Bridging visas

This rule ensures that, in certain circumstances, specified work you undertake while waiting for your visa application to be processed can still be counted towards a subsequent WHM visa application.

If:

  • you applied for a second WHM visa while your first WHM visa was still valid, and
  • while we were still processing your second WHM visa application, your first WHM visa ceased and a bridging visa came into effect

then you can count specified work carried out on this bridging visa towards eligibility for a third WHM visa, whether you apply in or outside Australia.

Subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visas

For applications lodged on or after 14 November 2020, former WHMs can count critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors undertaken on a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa towards eligibility for a second or third WHM visa. This special arrangement recognises the contribution of WHMs doing critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors and ensures they can still access subsequent WHM visa options.

  • If you:
    • transitioned in Australia from a WHM visa directly to a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa (or an unbroken series of subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visas), and
    • carried out some critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors while holding one of these subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visas
  • Then you can count:
    • that work, and
    • any other specified work you carried out while holding a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa
    • towards eligibility for a second or third WHM visa, whether you apply in or outside Australia.
  • And the previous bridging visas rule also applies if you held, or applied for, a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa.

For the avoidance of doubt, the following work can’t be counted as specified work:

  • work undertaken while you held a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa if you did NOT carry out any critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors
  • work undertaken while you held any other kind of visa, for example a Student visa
  • work undertaken while you held a subclass 408 visa that was not in the ‘AGEE COVID-19 Pandemic event’ stream
  • work undertaken while you held a bridging visa other than in the circumstances described above
  • for third WHM visa applications, work undertaken while you held your first WHM visa
  • for third WHM visa applications, work undertaken before 1 July 2019

Example – Akio – specified work while on a bridging visa is eligible 

While Akio was in Australia on his first Working Holiday (subclass 417) visa, he applied for a second Working Holiday visa. During the processing of his application, his first Working Holiday visa expired, his bridging visa came into effect and he commenced specified work. His second Working Holiday visa was then granted.

The specified work Akio undertook after his first Working Holiday visa expired and while he held the bridging visa is eligible.

Example – Ingrid – specified work while on a bridging visa is not eligible 

Ingrid left Australia when her first Working Holiday (subclass 417) visa expired and returned to Australia on a student visa.  At the completion of her studies, she applied in Australia for a second Working Holiday visa.  After submitting her application, she commenced specified work.  During the processing of her application, Ingrid’s student visa expired and her bridging visa came into effect. Her second Working Holiday visa was then granted and she continued her specified work.

The specified work Ingrid undertook after she submitted her application and before her second Working Holiday visa was granted (that is, while her student visa was still valid or while she held the bridging visa) is not eligible.  (However, specified work undertaken after the grant of her second Working Holiday visa will be eligible.)

Example – Bernadette – critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors on a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa is eligible

During Bernadette’s first WHM visa, the COVID-19 pandemic was declared and she decided to work as a contact tracer in Melbourne rather than relocate to a regional area to do specified work. This meant that she was not eligible to apply for a second WHM visa, but was also unable to depart Australia due to travel restrictions when her first WHM visa expired. On the basis of her critical work, she was granted a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa. She then continued to work as a contact tracer for 3 months. If she chooses to apply for a second WHM visa in the future, she will meet the specified work requirement.

Example – Sam – critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors and other specified work on a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa is eligible

One month before Sam’s second WHM visa expired, he started working as a nurse in a COVID-19 testing centre. He was then granted a subclass 408 COVID-19 Pandemic event visa and continued his critical COVID-19 work in the healthcare and medical sectors for 4 months, until the testing centre closed.  He then worked for 1 month picking fruit in regional Australia.  If Sam chooses to apply for a third WHM visa in the future, he will be able to count all this work to meet the 6 month specified work requirement.

Normal work days or shifts

You should agree with your employer the number of working hours, before you start work.

One single day of work is considered to be the normal number of hours per day or shift that is considered standard practice in the industry and role in which you are employed.

If you are working on a piecework rate the number of hours can depend on the weather and ripening of crops.

If you are working on an Award you should check your conditions of employment, including rostering, overtime, and penalty rates.

You cannot count work carried out on any one calendar day as more than one day of specified work. For example, if the industry’s standard day is 5 hours long, working 10 hours on one day – in a single or separate shifts for one or more employers – does not count as 2 days of specified work.

For volunteer bushfire or flood recovery work, any day on which you worked can be counted as one day.

Example: While on her second visa, Maria works on a dairy farm milking and other duties. Maria makes an agreement with her employer to work 5 days a week (Wednesday to Sunday) from 4am to 7am and 1pm to 4pm each working day (a total of 6 working hours per day) for 6 months. These hours are considered normal for this role and Maria is paid the correct legal wage. Maria can count every day of work towards the 6 month specified work requirement, which she meets.

Example: While on his first visa, Jian works on a fruit orchard picking and packing mangoes. Jian is working on a piecework rate and works 5 or 6 days a week for 3 months. Depending on the weather and ripening of crops he works between 5 to eight hours each working day. Jian can count all of these days of work towards the 3 month specified work requirement, which he meets.

Example: While on her first visa, Sophia works on a cattle station as a jillaroo and farm hand. Sophia works 5 or 6 days a week for 3 months. She works between 5 to nine hours each working day (including meal breaks). These hours are considered normal in this industry and role and she has been paid the correct legal wage. Sophia has met the 3 month specified work requirement.

Example: While on his first visa, Luigi works as a nurse at a hospital caring for COVID-19 patients and conducting COVID-19 screening. Luigi works three 12-hour shifts per week for three months. As these hours are considered normal in this industry, Luigi has met the 3 month specified work requirement.

Australian public holidays and sick days

Australian public holidays and sick days (or equivalent workers compensation leave days) can be counted as a day of specified work if you are paid for that day. Public Holiday or leave days which are not paid cannot be included in your total period of specified work.

If you are working on an Award you should check your conditions of employment including leave and public holiday entitlements.

Severe or seasonal weather

You cannot include any unpaid days where you did not work due to severe or seasonal weather towards your total period of specified work.

You should plan to complete your specified work early in your stay, as no exception will be made for failure to complete the required minimum period of specified work because of severe weather – or any other reason.

Example: While on her first visa, Petra was contracted to work 5 days a week under a piecework rate agreement on a sugar-cane farm doing harvest work from 1 June to 27 August – a period of 88 calendar days. However, she could not work for a total of 5 scheduled working days due to severe weather, and she was not paid for these 5 days. Petra later completed an additional 5 working days with another employer from 1 to 5 September, also under a piecework rate agreement. She has now completed the equivalent of 3 months (88 calendar days) of full time work and has met the 3 month specified work requirement.

Shift work

Variable shift work arrangements which are standard practice in the industry can be counted towards specified work. For example, if your full time paid employment contract involves 2 weeks rostered on for every day and then 2 weeks rostered off as rest days, provided this is standard practice in the industry, and you are paid for this whole period, then all 4 weeks (28 days) can be counted towards your total period of specified work. Be sure to keep a copy of your employment contract.

How to find specified work

You can find specified work vacancies in the same way you would find other job vacancies, such as through employment pages in newspapers, the Internet and job placement service providers. Vacancies specifically for plant and animal cultivation can be found on Harvest Trail.

Not all vacancies advertised on Harvest Trail will qualify as specified work or give you eligibility for a second or third Working Holiday visa.

You should ensure that the vacancy meets the definition of specified work listed above and that the work will take place in an eligible postcode of regional Australia. To check the postcode list of designated regional areas see Regional Australia.

You should not leave it until the end of your stay to arrange your specified work, to allow for unforeseen circumstances which may prevent completion of the required period of specified work, such as bad weather, illness or not finding enough work.

Remote and very remote Australia

Tourism and hospitality work carried out from 22 June 2021 in the following areas of remote and very remote Australia will be considered eligible specified work for the purpose of a second or third Working Holiday (subclass 417) visa application lodged from 5 March 2022.
