So you want to work in Ireland, but are unsure of the costs involved. At IEP we are upfront with all costs that are associated with a working holiday program. If you have any questions about the costs or the savings required just contact us here.
It’s also important to understand that not all of the costs below are paid at once. You can review our ‘How to Apply’ information that outlines when certain fees are paid.

Program Fee:

Work Ireland Program Fee: $695

Ireland Working Holiday Authorisation Visa Fee

WHA Visa Fee: AU$95
GNIB Registration (Garda National Immigration Bureau Registration): €300

Proof of Funds

To be allowed to enter Ireland on a 12 month Working Holiday Visa you must show a proof of funds of $3000 if you are entering on a return ticket. If you choose to enter on a one way ticket you will need $6000 for proof of funds.


As part of the terms and conditions of Work Ireland program, participants are required to have travel insurance booked through IEP for the duration of their travels. This is a condition of the employment agreement IEP has with it’s partner organisation in Ireland.
