Hello
 
Hi All

Well I normally visit the Oz boards but have found myself in here today :)

Wondering if anyone can help - have taken a look at the NZ Government Site but for some reasons got myself all confused.

Need to know what Visas are available and length of some of them etc.

Any help would be great.

Andy & Georgina

Howdo. Fairly sure working visas are 2 years? But if you ckeck out this thread in 5 hours,when the lazy bleeders have awoken,should be some positive answers. Will see what I can find out though.

Hello.
not sure there's an easy route! We couldn't find way into oz cos of age but are having more luck with NZ.
From 3 yrs of posting on oz forum I'd say people seem to get 136 and 457 work visas fairly easily to OZ. It depends on your qualifications and job offers.

From my limited experience on NZ forum people with job offers have a smoother ride. The kiwis will be up in a few hours to answer your question about types of work visas.
cheers :beer:

Hi guys,
on a permanent visa you can go as a skilled migrant, family visa or business visa (not sure what the business visa entails) and on a temporary visa you can go on a work visa (sponsored to do a job that can't be filled by a New Zealander) for up to 3 years, on a working holiday if aged between 18 - 30 for up to 2 years or on a student visa if you are going into education. That's as much as I know but hope it helps. Good luck,
Donna

Thanks Donna for your help.

Do you know of any sites that will be useful for the requirements? Went on the Gov one but didnt see all the requirements etc.
