We have received information from the Argentinian Embassy about a work and holiday visa programme which has recently started. This programme is a product of an agreement between Argentina and Ireland and is not associated with VSI.

This is a non-funded opportunity and participants would be responsible for all aspects of their stay in Argentina.

Studying or training for up to four months during your stay is allowed and Spanish language courses are a great oppurtunity.
