hey there everyone,
i am from Canada and am planning a departure to the beautiful country of new zealand in November 2005. i am iffy about visas and what exactly i need to do and where to get the information and applications. i am going to be backpacking for the first 3 months and then just living there hopefully for a while. i hope to work on farms and do odd jobs after that...take in the country and expereince the vast land....so if anyone could help me out it would be gladly appreciated. thanks in advance! :)

Hi & Welcome to TP, you will gain loads of info from the forums & if it isn't there just ask.

Have a look at this site for visa info http://www.immigration.govt.nz/

and this one for farm work

Let me know if you have any other questions I can help you with.

Cheers,
Fiona
