Working Holiday Visas for Students and Recent Graduates

The Association of Study Abroad Providers in Ireland (ASAPI) has been given further details by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on the Ireland Working Holiday visa.  This visa allows US citizens to work and travel within Ireland for up to 12 months.  In order to qualify for the program, participants must be either in full-time (i.e. not part time or online) post-secondary education, or have graduated within the last 12 months of their application for the Working Holiday Authorisation. Applications can be made through the Irish Embassy in Washington or the relevant Irish Consulate in the US. We regularly hear from US study abroad students in Ireland who want to return after graduation, and this program provides them with the opportunity.

Please promote this program to your students as a great option for US students who want to live, travel, and work in a fantastic country.
