THE ULTIMATE TRAVEL ADVENTURE
Times have changed and the concept of quickly “hopping into the family life” straight after finishing ones studies, finding a decent job and spending the rest of life under the wings of the parents is not that appealing any longer. More and more young adults aspire to do the best of their youth, see the world and feel the freedom.
The thing is that travelling is getting expensive. Especially, for young people it is hard to set out on a journey into the strange world, so, they seek for alternatives how to travel without having to spend a fortune. Working Holiday Maker Program appears to be the ideal option. In fact, it is better than that. One can even make pretty good cash while travelling.
WHAT IS WORKING HOLIDAY MAKER PROGRAM (WHMP)?
Working Holiday Maker Program (Working Holiday, Work and Holiday or Work and Travel) allows people, typically from 18 to 30-35 and from eligible partner countries to undertake employment in the country issuing the visa to supplement their travel funds for up to 2 year-long time. The most popular WHMP countries are most of the English speaking countries, such as United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, since they usually offer great employment opportunities in various industries and provide reasonably good wages.

WHMP was established in January 1975 with the main purpose to promote international understanding by enabling young people to experience the culture of another country. From the economical point of view, WHMP has been helping the “less attractive” industries like hospitality, child care, agriculture and viticulture to fill the occupations in demand. Commonly, it is casual work in hospitality & nannying as well as seasonal work, such as fruit picking, vegetable gathering, farming, particularly in the regional areas are most wanted. However, there are also lucrative job opportunities for those with good qualifications, working experience and language skills.
