A South West visa is a work visa which is issued by the Australian Government for South West countries.
These visa holders can work in Australia for up to six months without the need for a visa, or work for up-to five years on a seasonal basis.
It can also be extended to allow for permanent work.
A South Western visa can only be issued by South Australia, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
The visa is valid for one year and is valid in all of South Australia except Darwin.
South West visas are not issued for people from New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT.
A number of different forms of visa are available, but a South West is the most commonly used.
