Working holiday visas are available to young people, usually aged 18 to 30, but 18 to 35 in a select few countries. They let you travel and work in New Zealand for up to 12 months. If you are from Canada they let you travel and work for up to 23 months, and for up to 36 months if you are from the United Kingdom. Working holiday visas are only available in countries that have an agreement with New Zealand for working holiday visas.
The link here provides the starting dates for each working holiday visa scheme in 2024, along with the number of available spots.
Applications will be accepted for each scheme until the quota is filled. Once the quota is reached, the scheme will be closed until 2025.
For working holiday schemes that still have available spots from 2023, applications will continue to be accepted until the quota is reached. The quota will then reset on the opening date for 2024.
In 2022, the New Zealand Government and the Government of Viet Nam agreed to increase the Viet Nam Working Holiday Scheme (WHS) cap from 100 to 200. Efforts are currently underway to establish formal agreements to implement these changes.
