ninemadcow has indicated that this thread is about New Zealand

I am very confused with the temporary working visa process. If anyone could break it down for me I would be very grateful. I need a visa for both New Zealand and Oz and I am applying from the UK.

What will I need?
How much will it cost?
What would be the best way of assuring the most positive response?

Please Help Me

Sean

Hi Sean
I can let you know about the Working Holiday Visa for Oz - is that what you mean??? I applied for mine a few weeks back online at www.immi.gov.au and I was granted my visa within 2 days!!:)
For my visa it cost me approx. £60.00. With this visa you can work for a maximum of 3 month for employer.
Any other questions, let me know.
Jo

Hi Jo

Thanks for replying, but i was thinking of staying away for longer than three months maybe a year if poss. Is it that a lot more difficult to do online and what is the likely hood of receiving a possitive response?

Anyway cheers again, the help and advice are much appreciated.

Hi Sean

As Jo mentioned it is really easy to apply for a visa on-line. I applied for mine and had a reply within 3 hours granting me my visa.

You don't even need to send away your passport. You get a reference no. and get it stamped when you arrive depending on which city you arrive in.

It's also a pretty informative website with plenty of FAQ's.
