Petition of Adam McDonald: Extend entry dates for existing working holiday visas - COVID-19

Published date: 2 Apr 2020

Petition request

That the House of Representatives urge the Government to extend the entry dates on existing working holiday visas for people who are currently offshore and unable to enter the country due to COVID-19.

Petition reason

We request extending the entry dates of working holiday visas for offshore holders, who are unable to enter the country before their visa expires due to the pandemic of COVID-19. We understand that you currently have more pressing matters to deal with, but once the pandemic is over and it is safe for us to travel we ask that there be a way to extend our visas to allow us to use them. Kia kaha from the WHV holders.
