Okay. I was just curious about others who have applied for the working holiday visa online at the immigration New Zealand website. How long was it until you received a response that you were accepted??? I've heard that it's pretty quick when it's done online.

And also, I want to quadruple-check this!!! As long as you have sufficient funds to purchase an outward ticket from New Zealand, then you don't need to have one when you first arrive.........correct??? I've heard way too many horror stories and I just really want to make sure!!! Thanx guys!!!

Yep that's right, as long as you have the money to cover the return ticket AND money to show that you can surrpirt yourslef while in NZ (NZ$350 per month), you should be fine.

As for the time it shoudl take to process: just a few days. If it is taking more than a week, keep an eyse on it, or call to see what is happening: +64 9 914 4100

Cheers :)

I recently did mine and the boyf via the online service, and it took just two days to come back as approved. It's a really quick service!
