Having a smooth application process is important to us! We are upfront with all costs and provide a comprehensive screening phone call ensuring you know how the program works. We try and answer all your questions and then provide you with our expert travel materials that will prepare you for your next step. Our entire application process is outlined below for you to review.

Be aware that there are some dodgy companies out there that will try and pressure you into applying. Always read the T&C’s and beware of all the costs. If the costs aren’t listed on the company’s website – we recommend walking away.

At IEP, we pride ourselves in offering the best customer service on the market – if you aren’t happy after the initial phone call we will refund you in full.

Step 2

Welcome Phone Call:


After payment is made we will give you a call within 2 working days to welcome you to the program and answer any questions you may have. Then we can move on to the next step of the application.

Step 3

Visa application:


After the welcome phone call you will be sent the guidelines to start the process for the IEC Working Holiday Visa.

We will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the application. You will fill in your details and then pay the visa fee.

Criminal Record Form


Everyone that applies for the Canadian working holiday visa must obtain a police check. IEP will send you instructions on how to apply for the correct Australian Federal Police Check for your visa application. And if you have ever been arrested, convicted or given diversion you will also need to obtain additional documents to support your application. IEP will be able to advise how you should go about obtaining these.

Step 4

Arrival Booking form:


After you have submitted your visa application and you have advised IEP we will send you our arrival booking form. Complete this and return it back to IEP and we will arrange your arrival accommodation in Vancouver, or Toronto (surcharge applies). We need this form back at least three weeks before your planned arrival.

Step 5

Members Website


You will get access to our Canadian partner’s online members website where you can find info on CV format, where to find work and accommodation, social events and much more.

Step 6



Now that you have the work visa you will need to get travel insurance to cover you for your time overseas. IEP has comprehensive policies on offer. For a quote please contact us at [email protected]
