Do I still have to pay the full amount even if I don't receive a job offer?

No. You will only be charged the initial deposit which covers our costs of helping prepare your application and setting up your guaranteed job interview.

Do I have to go for the whole year?

No. Although your working holiday visa will be vaild for 12 months; the duration of your trip is completely up to you. You should ensure you are available to work for a minimum period of 4 months.

Is accomodation included?

Accomodation is included for the first three nights of your arrival. You'll be provided with an accomodation guide and have access to our Kiwi and Kiwi Facebook page allowing you to connect with other participants who are heading out to New Zealand at the same time. We suggest booking at least an extra 7 nights of accomodation at your hostel to give you adequate time to find some more permanent accomodation.

Who can apply?

We're accepting applications from the UK, USA and Germany. If you are outside of these countries feel free to get in touch and we'll see how we can help you.

How do I apply for the right visa?

You'll need to apply for the Working Holiday Scheme (WHS) visa via the New Zealand Immigration website. The UK has an unlimited number of visas available to 18-30 years old. Your visa application is completed entirely online without having to physically visit an embassy.
