Default Holiday for 6 months do i need anything?

Hi all

I am going to NZ and read on website that i can stay for up to 6 months without needing to apply for a holiday visa.

Does anyone know is there anything else i need to do? i know i have to book a return ticket but not sure what else??

cheers

You will be able to stay in New Zealand for 6 months on a visitors visa.

You don't say what age you are or whether you would like to do seasonal work.

If you come into New Zealand for a holiday, you would be given a 6 month visitors visa. You cannot work under this visa. You would need to book onward passage.

Should you happen to decide you would like to stay and managed to find a job , then you would apply for a temporary work permit. It is a job offer first and then an application for a work permit after.

You simply book your passage / air ticket to New Zealand and on entry you should be granted the 6 month visitors visa.

It is a stamp in your passport when you enter NZ. That is all.


edit

this is provided you are coming from the UK.

edit again


funny thing... i used to know a Pip Snell

Hi Nikki

You need to make sure you have a minimum of 3 months in your passport from your RETURN date

There are some other things worth considering too.

Look here

Hope that helps
