There are currently no arrangements in place for Work and Holiday or Seasonal Worker Program visas in Australia for Fiji citizens. The Australian and Fijian Governments are working positively towards the Work and Holiday Visa process, but concluding this arrangement will take time. The Australian Government is also considering including Fiji in an expanded Seasonal Worker Program, but there is no time frame for when this will be determined. We would strongly discourage clients engaging with agents who claim to be able to assist with lodgement or processing of these visas. If approached by an agent in relation to these visas, please advise the Australian High Commission by email to Please continue to check this website for any updates.
