The Australian government has announced the finalisation of a bilateral agreement with Greece that will allow young Australians to more easily work and study in the European country.
The Work and Holiday Visa agreement between the two countries has been in the works since 2014. In December 2015, the agreement was ratified by a large majority of the Greek Parliament.
It will come into effect from July 1 this year.
Under the arrangement, 500 places will be made available in each country annually for Greek and Australian citizens between 18 and 30-years-old to live abroad for 12 months under the 462 visa.
The agreement was finalised after a series of delays during the Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Terens Quick's visit to Australia.
