Im looking at doing the new zealand working visa next year. I was wondering whether someone know what the rules on age are for the visa. As far as i know you can apply between the ages of 18 and 30. Im currently 28, and will be 29 next June. When roughly i plan to leave (maybe before this !!).

As the visa is vaild for two years, does anyone know whether, i would be granted the visa, as when the visa finishes i would be over 30??

Thanks for any help in advance..

Unless they have changed it, you can be granted the working holiday visa until they day before you turn 31. *googles* Yes, according to this, you are eligible if you're not more than 30 years old.
I also distinctly recall reading that once you have the visa, your age doesn't matter (and so that you could in the above case wait until two days before your 32nd birthday to enter the country, and then stay till you're almost 34). I can't find confirmation of that however, but that's not something that should matter to you. You should be more than safe with this.
