singaporeans cannot apply for the Oz's working holiday visa.
Keep this in mind, I have been living in Australia as a PR for about 6 years now and when I tried to apply for a working holiday visa to Japan/Korea I was reject as only Australian citizens have this agreement with the other countries, the same applies for foreigners looking to come into Australia or NZ.

Singapore is not on this list.

FYI the visa mentioned in asingaporeanson blog is something different and is no longer available since the 2013 immigration rule change. (to the best of my knowledge)

What you can however apply for is a working visa, but keep in mind there are quite alot of requirements you will need to meet before you will be granted that visa. (Some quite impossible, like a sponsor)

Good luck with the application

Hey, can someone give me a brief summary of this? I don't quite understand it. I'm planning to head to NZ in june/july to try out snowboarding and to experience snow for the first time but my parents say its quite expensive. This certainly would seem to help me as I just graduated from poly.

Wouldn't the same apply to you? Working holidays are specifically designed to for people who have "holiday" as their primary focus and "work" as their secondary. Clearly you realise that going to NZ is expensive so why are you going there? Or, if you're so rich, why are you applying for a working holiday visa at all? If you aren't going to help me with informative replies, do me a favour and don't help me at all.

no, i mean if it's to experience snow, then you have other places.

if you wanna experience NZ then it's a different story.

sorry if i make you take it the wrong way and i apologise for that.

anyway i'm also heading to NZ in july.

I don't see how his/her reply to you wasn't informative.

You asked about snowing and skiing in a work holiday thread. How relevant is it? Ok, even if it's only relevant becos it's NZ, I don't see how not informative the other reply was when it said the air tickets cost more than S$1k and that it's cheaper to experience snow in 'cheaper' places.

What kind of summary are you expecting? Snow related or work visa related?

You want to earn money while on a holiday in NZ to go skiing?

agree with your point.
if main intention is to 'experience snow', there are other options which are easier on the wallet, and hence more likely to obtain parental approval

I would imagine that a working holiday would entail a fairly lengthy stay in that country. Friends of mine who have taken up this option have typically spent more than 4-6 months in the foreign country, to really immerse themselves in the foreign culture. I doubt it will be possible to do a short ski-trip cum 'working holiday'.

it wasn't informative because I didn't ask anything about plane tickets nor did I say I would consider going somewhere else. I asked for a summary regarding the visa. If I want to go to NZ, it's my decision anyway.

Guess I should apologise as well. I guess it's just the way I view a person's attitude through the way they form their sentences.
To me, that sentence you said came across as quite rude.

if you need the info on working holiday in NZ, here's the link for SG citizens: Singapore Work Exchange Programme

application requires NZD165 and takes at most 5 working days to be processed. my friend and I got ours approved in 2 working days.
