Travelling with a Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is an easy low-cost way to see more of New Zealand, meet more people, and have more fun.
New Zealand's horticulture and tourism industries have many casual roles available.
Work is available all across New Zealand, all year round. And for most roles, experience is not required. While on-site accommodation is available in some areas.
Advantages of a Working Holiday Visa:
Stay for longer - With a WHV you can stay for longer than with a standard visitor visa, meet other travellers and local people
Stretch your budget
Leave and return
Start working straight away
See more of New Zealand, and then perhaps use your earnings to see more of the Pacific – and then do it again - because repeat entry to New Zealand is a feature of Working Holiday visas.
With eight main horticulture regions around the country, you can follow the seasons, stretch your budget, and enjoy some of the best New Zealand has to offer.

A New Zealand bank account - With some banks you can apply for and open a NZ bank account before you arrive. Find out how on this helpful page from the NZ Pocket Guide.
