Once you are registered, you can also start your application here too.  You will see a list of all the available Working Holiday Visas. You will need to locate and select your country. The countries box will indicate if the visa is open or closed at that time.

Login at a later stage

If you need to come back to your application at a later stage you can do so by selecting 'Login' at the top right-hand side of the Immigration New Zealand website. You will need to ensure you select ‘Working Holiday visas’ from the options. After logging in you will see your current visa application and you can continue to edit.
