Can I apply for a Working Holiday Visa directly from New Zealand?

In most cases you may apply for a Working Holiday Visa from anywhere in the world, including New Zealand.

However, there are some country schemes where you are required to be resident in that country in order to apply for your working holiday. For example, if you are applying for a China Working Holiday, you must actually be resident in China at the time of applying.

In some situations, if you apply for a Working Holiday Visa while in New Zealand you will be required to provide a medical certificate.

We recommend that you check the requirements of your particular country's scheme  to find out if there are restrictions on your ability to apply outside of your country.
