New Zealand Working Holiday Scheme

If you are aged between 18 and 30 (35 for some countries) and are interested in travelling to and working in New Zealand, you may be eligible for the New Zealand Working Holiday visa. This visa allows the applicant to travel to and reside in New Zealand for up to 12 months (or up to 36 months for United Kingdom applicants). Applicants will need to be of good health and character and not be taking any dependents with them, and also must not have been issued a New Zealand working holiday visa previously.

The application fee for the New Zealand Working Holiday visa is £200 for the 12-month option or £220 for the 23-month option. Both prices include government fees. Please note that 23-month visa will require the applicant to undertake a medical and x-ray at their own expense. If an applicant has a health or character issue but still wishes to apply for the working holiday visa, there may be a small charge payable for any additional work that needs to be undertaken.
