I have done the oz whv thing a few years back and now I am going to apply for the WHV in NZ before I am too old, going to do the 23 month visa.
Does any one know how long you have until you have to enter the country after the visa has been issued?
I remember oz allowing you 10 months to enter the country before your visa became invalid, does anyone know how long NZ allows?
thanks fopr your help guys
Hope you all have a good a time as I had in AUS or wherever your travelling
I believe you have 12 months to enter the country after you have been approved for the visa. Have a look on the NZ immigation website, that will tell you all the details you need to know.
I think NZ allows you 12 months to enter.
I am going for a 12 month backpacker trip starting in April.
hope i could help you.
Thanks for the reply guys means I can get the visa ahead of schedule and know for sure that I am going whatever happens.
I tried looking on the immigration site but I couldn't find any info on how long you had to enter the country.
