Working Holiday Programme

The Working Holiday Programme is an initiative by the Irish and Japanese Governments and enables young Japanese people to take extended holidays in Ireland for up to a year, and to work to supplement their travel.

The aim of the scheme is to give Japanese people the opportunity to experience the culture, landscape and people of Ireland while being able to work and study English.
