important info

arrival info

Oz Insyte starts every Sunday. It’s best to arrive on the actual start date as there’s no activities on day one so you’ll have plenty of time to check in, relax and meet your group. If you do arrive in Melbourne before your start date we will still pick you up from the airport and will book you into the hostel from the day you arrive. Please ask your working holiday travel designer for more information.

after oz insyte

During Oz Insyte you’ll get lots of help with finding work, accommodation and your onward travel. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re doing, where you’re going and help you with everything you’ll need to have the trip of a lifetime with the new friends you’ve made.


You need a visa to enter Australia. Most people who do Oz Intro are on either a Working Holiday Visa (WHV) or Tourist Visa.

A WHV is available to those aged 18 - 30 from the UK and many other European nations and 18-35 for Canada & Ireland. We can organise your visa for you before you go click here for more information.
