Working Holiday to NZ 2015

Hey guys,

Finding a travel buddy for New Zealand working holiday probably after Chinese New Year in 2015 (March - May) as I have 8 months of break before university begins. It should be around a 2 month trip or so and I've checked the window period where visa can be applied from NZ immigration side. It opens in November. Do google for the terms and conditions.

Anyone up for it?

Hey guys, I've the intention to do it in February. Anyone can fill me up on details? I'm kinda scared, I wouldn't mind if anyone were to join me on this. Thanks in advance. xoxo.
go for it!
I just ended my work and travels and I wished I could have stayed longer if not for uni.
What kind of details do you need?
Basically, just apply for your visa, get ur tix, pack your luggage and go!
That was probably what I did.

How did you find a job there? Pre-arranged or ad hoc when you reach? The locals don't mind hiring you on short term basis?

I met a couple other forumers who went on a working holiday around the same time. What we did was to go there and ask shop by shop if they were hiring.

Hi,

Would like to clarify my doubt before making a payment for the application. On the last section of the form, there's this requirement to enter the DDMMYY arrival in NZ. May I know if this is a specific date to arrive NZ or is it just the start date of the visa validity period?

Thanks!

The Visa Validity period starts from the date your application is approved.. the date of arrival is probably just an estimate ba..
