My country is not on the list of working holiday schemes

A working holiday visa is only available to selected countries, which have a reciprocal agreement with New Zealand for a working holiday scheme. 

Working holiday schemes

If your country of citizenship does not currently have an agreement of this kind with New Zealand,  it will not appear on this list, and we will be unable to offer you a working holiday visa application.

If you still wish to work in New Zealand, you may assess yourself under our remaining work policies to see if you can apply for a work visa of a different type.
