One thought on “Subclass 462 visa – work and holiday visa

  1. Valerie Soemadi says:

    My daughter is a US citizen currently in Australia on a Work and Holiday Visa (subclass 462), see attached. She arrived in Australia on October 3, 2022 so he visa will expire on October 3, 2023.

    She would like to remain in Australia until December 2023 in order to travel around Australia. How can she change her visa status from Work and Holiday Visa (subclass 462) to a tourist visa? I assume the tourist visa would be Electronic Travel Authority (subclass 601 or 600)
