The Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a type of temporary visa that allows citizens from certain countries to work and travel in Argentina for a specified period of time.


  • Be a citizen of one of the countries that Argentina has a WHV agreement with (currently, Australia, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Norway, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden).
  • Be between 18 and 30 years old at the time of application.
  • Have a valid and in good condition passport.
  • Show sufficient funds to support oneself during the first months in Argentina.
