The Australian government refers to 462 visa as a “temporary visa accessible to young people (aged 18–30) who wish to travel and work in Australia for up to a year.”

This visa allows the immigrants to work only for certain industries that are included in this subclass. The temporary immigrants must not be allowed to take positions that would displace Australian citizens or permanent residents and should have no criminal record.

Immigrants who come to Australia on a subclass 462 visa are only permitted to stay for up to 12 months at a time. You can extend your stay for another year in a row only once. If you wish to apply for extinction, you will need to apply for subclass 417.

This visa is specific to young people who wish to have an adventure abroad while still being able to receive a year’s worth of experience. You also cannot stay in one region for more than three months at a time. If immigrants wish to study while they are on the subclass 462 visa, they must apply for the subclass 574 visa.
