Pay Slips Required For WHV 2nd Year Applications September 5, 2015

I moved to Australia in 2013 and created this blog to help Irish people living in Australia. 10 million visitors later it now has evolved into a job board, flight company and offers support with many services Irish people need when they move to Australia. Pop over to my resources page(irisharoundoz.com/resources) to find every service and product I recommend. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you here again.

Working holiday visa update

PAY SLIPS REQUIRED FOR 2ND WORKING HOLIDAY VISA APPLICATIONS

Starting 31 August 2015(don’t worry if you did it prior!), payslips must be provided with 2nd year Working Holiday Visa applications. Be sure to subscribe to the blog for weekly updates.

This will help the Department of Immigration and Border Protection ensure that work completed by working holiday makers is performed in accordance with workplace law.

Note: Australian employers are legally required to provide their employees with pay slips.


Work performed prior to 31 August 2015 will not require pay slip evidence.

Pay slips need to show that the working holiday maker’s specified work was paid work and that the pay received meets the basic pay entitlements employees should receive when working in Australia.

NOTE: Voluntary work will not be accepted for this purpose.

This means no more WOOFING! We will soon be updating our regional work guide
