After your first Working Holiday Visa in Australia, you have the possibility to renew for a second year visa. However, in order to qualify for a second year visa, you need to complete a specified work requirement in regional Australia. You must work for three months, or 88 days, in a specified work role in a regional area of Australia during your first Working Holiday Visa. You will find in this article the list of all the regional areas of Australia eligible to get a second Working Holiday Visa and enjoy a second year Down Under. 

Important : Since 1 July 2019, 417 & 462 visa holders are eligible to apply for a third visa. They need to carry out 6 months of specified work in regional areas while on their second Working Holiday (subclass 417 & 462) . Eligible types of work and regional areas are the same as for the second visa. The 6 months work must be carried out on or after 1 July 2019. Therefore a successful application cannot be lodged before January 2020.
