The current visa will not extend automatically to the longer length. To apply for the balance of the longer visa, AEWV holders will need to meet criteria. Employers of current AEWV holders may be able to reuse existing job tokens, without completing a Job Check, to support their worker to apply for the balance of the longer AEWV.


There is criteria employers need to meet, including holding valid accreditation.
