The Hon Julie Bishop MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs recently announced that an agreement has been signed between Australia and Slovakia allowing up to 200 people from both countries to experience travelling and working abroad from the mutual agreement.
“The agreement will provide the opportunity for a culturally rich experience for the young adults of Australia and Slovakia and strengthen our already warm people-to-people links,” said Minister Bishop after signing the agreement with Slovak Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affair, Miroslav Lajcak.
The arrangement will be based on the eligibility requirements of the Work and holiday Visa (subclass 462) which allows successful applicants to stay in Australia for 12 months and work with an employer for up to 6 months.
