Working holiday visa, how late can I apply?

Hi all,

I am travelling from Australia to work in America for their summer this year and am applying for a J1 Visa, however I am also planning on going to Canada to work the winter season around Vancouver.

Do you think I will be able to apply for a Canadian Working Holiday Visa once in the states, or am I better off applying whilst still in Australia? Does anyone know the latest possible date to apply for a Visa before entering the country?

Thanks :)

Hi there k_welsh ~

The hills are alive with the sound of Aussie accents here, so you will have lots of company. Some of us carry a dictionary at all times because Buckley's means an entirely different thing here! :-)

I don't know too much about a WHV, but here is a Canadian Gov't website that does. (I notice that the URL ends in .au so they are expecting you!)
