Unlike a visitor visa that usually give you an opportunity you travel for up to 3 months, a Working Holiday Scheme visa gives people between 18 and 30 from eligible countries a chance you work, study or travel in New Zealand for up to 12 months if you’re between 18 and 30.

The main advantage of this visa is that you have the flexibility to work or study whatever you like and wherever you like while travelling in New Zealand. The visa allows you to undertake casual work and travel around New Zealand for up to one or two years.
