Taking part in an approved work exchange scheme

Work exchange schemes are reciprocal agreements that let you experience work, education and culture in New Zealand.

Work exchange schemes

To take part in an approved work exchange scheme you need to contact a work exchange scheme participating organisation. If they approve you under their scheme requirements, they support your work visa application.

If you take part in an approved work exchange scheme you can apply for a work visa for the length of your exchange so you can work in New Zealand.
