HELLO :)

Hi all,

Looking for some advice / help on this work and travel in New Zealand. I've been talking about going on this trip for the last 2 years! My visa just got approved (YAY!) and I'm looking to head to NZ in the last week of March till early Sept (tentative - flight tickets are cheapest then). Either planning to fly in Auckland and travel downwards towards Queensland and back up to Auckland or exit in Queensland.

I'm looking to secure either a paid work or best, paid + accommodation before flying off to NZ. Anyone knows of any websites where work opportunities are posted or anyone flying to NZ around the same time period? We can be travel buddies!

If you've been on this NZ work and travel, would welcome suggestions on places to visit or avoid!

Any help is appreciated! Email me at tesoro-10(at)hotmail(dot)com.

Thank you!

Best,
Fae

Kia Ora!
I am really envious of you.I would most likely be going there in Late-march or early May depending on situation.
My trip would be more of a cycling trip after working in NZ for a month or two.
Here's some websites to help you out.
Food & Beverage Attendant - Holiday Inn Auckland Airport Job in Auckland - SEEK

Seek is a NZ website to look for jobs.

For seasonal work
New Zealand Fruit Picking Jobs and work vacancies
and
Seasonalwork.co.nz


Take Care and enjoy your trip.
Do share those lovely pictures with us.

The Visa Validity period starts from the date your application is approved.. the date of arrival is probably just an estimate ba..
Thanks! My visa got approved and I'm heading in July. Any city, other than Auckland good to live in? Most probably my flight will land at Christchurch.

Hi there! I'm leaving for auckland nx week on da 17th mar, and then head towards tauranga to see if i can find and secure any seasonal job. If possible to get a job, I suppose the min commitment would be around 6-8 weeks? And then after that I'll start touring NZ via Straytravel hop on hop off bus. Anybody along this line of planning too? Do whatsapp me nine2203697 Cheers

For those who travel alone don't worry too much, there are heaps of nice people in NZ. Its better to go there and look for some mates who are heading the same direction and then you guys will be bond by the same interest. And if you not comfortable with them you can always find excuse to leave the group. But if you already have a travel buddy with you and you guys have an disagreement along the way then things will get ugly.

Anyway backpacking is to meet new people and do the stuff that you will never get to do in SG like hitch hiking, picking fruits.

I've done my working holiday 2014 and i like it so much that i have decided to stay on in NZ

very easy to get visa. they will most likely approve within 48 hours.

For job wise you will have to match the seasons, winter and spring not so much jobs and so many people will be fighting. The best season to come over here is November i guess. There are heaps of advice on the internet, but many of them are in Chinese because mostly is the Malaysian or the Taiwanese sharing the info.

good luck mate
