Australia: Working Holiday Visa (Digital Nomad Visa)

Though not technically a remote work visa, younger digital nomads from certain countries can go to Australia and work remotely, as well as work for local employers, with a Working Holiday Visa.



A Working Holiday Visa is a great way to explore Australia while working to fund your travels. You can also study on this visa, for up to 4 months.

Along with working for local businesses there, you also have the right to work remotely in Australia or to freelance for Australian clients. 

If you fulfil the requirements (like spending 3 months each year working for specified employers), you can extend this visa for up to 3 years.
