General

Work and Holiday program is a program aimed at promoting cultural exchange and serves as a medium for establishing people to people relationship, especially as a social gathering for the young people, in order to know/understand each other’s local culture or habit, to finally create peace.

The establishment of the program is resulting from a strong government to government cooperation through agreement or memorandum of understanding, of which the content usually regulates the agreement on granting reciprocal immigration facility to support implementation of the program.
