Aotearoa New Zealand has agreements with 45 countries, including Vietnam, that allow young people aged between 18 and 30 (or up to 35 in some cases) the opportunity to travel around New Zealand and work temporarily while they are here.

The scheme will reopen to Vietnam nationals capped at 100 places.

In February, it was announced that Vietnam would receive a cap increase to 200 this year, however, this increase will now come into effect later than expected to enable time for the necessary processes between both our countries to be completed.

New Zealand officials are working to finalise details for raising the cap for New Zealanders looking to travel to Vietnam as part of a Working Holiday Scheme.

Further information will be made available once the agreements between New Zealand and Vietnam have been updated.
