Default Working Holiday Visa

We have decided (we think) to do things a little differently and come out to NZ on a two year working holiday Visa.
We currently live in the UK and have decided to do things this way as we have never visited the country before and wanted to give ourselves some flexibility should things not work out. We then plan to fill in our paper work for residency from there once we are sure we want to stay....

What do people think of doing things this way around? Any advice etc?

Also we read somewhere that with the Working Holiday Visa you can only work for any one employer for three months at a time. Is this correct?

Basically any advice/info about how this visa works would be much appreciated.

Hi guys, similar situation to yourselves, myself and partner are going out to New Zealand in November on a 2 year working holiday visa, with the hope of finding permanent work that may lead to residency should we wish to stay. Our interpretation from immigration NZ website was that you can work for the same employer for upto 12 months, however the posts have to be temporary or non permanent - il recheck this though as it was 6 months ago when we applied for WHV.

I see on a previous post you have mentioned Dunedin - we are also considering this area so chances are our paths may cross :-)

Are you both currently looking for work out there? We have decided to wait until we get there, have a few months travelling around and then register with some agencies in the hope of finding work.

Good luck with your plans!! Its all so exciting!!

Hello KoolCat,

Nice to find someone in a similar situation to us.

Like you we have decided to wait until we get there to look for work. We have been looking on NZ employment agencie sites regulalry but just to get a feel for what is around really.
We will be very newly married when we arrive if everything goes to plan so the first few weeks will be like a honeymoon for us and then we will think about having a look around jobs wise I think.

Do you have your working holiday Visa yet? If you could double check on the job situation for us or post us some links to info on them then we would really appreciate that?

Hi guys, checked my working holiday visa and it says employment is permitted for a period of up to 12 months except permanent employment. Il attach a link to the working holiday visa details on the immigration New Zealand site -

http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/work/workingholiday/unitedkingdomworkingholidayscheme.htm[/URL]

Dont know if the link works - you may have to cut and paste

We have had our 23 months electronic WHV since 18th December 2007 and need to enter NZ to validate them by 17th December 2008. Were looking to book one way tickets this week

Any queries feel free to give me a shout or send a PM

Good look with the wedding plans

Bye for now mate
