Why don't you just apply for the Working Holiday Visa through the N.Z. immigration website. That's what I did and it turned out to be way cheaper than using an expensive agency.

i just went direct through the immigration website too - i'm fairly sure that's the cheapest way.

great, thanks. def getting it through immigration website. however, one further question: has anyone from UK applied for the 23 month visa that u can now get - looks like have to supply medical/chest x-ray certificate for this and have to go through an appointed panel doctor from an approved list, none of which are located anywhere near where I live! Has anyone gone down this route, and is there any flexibility with where you end up getting the medical? Cheers.

unfortunately you do have to use one of the panel doctors listed by immigration. it might be worth shopping around too as prices vary - i paid 285 in central manchester last year. results took about 2 weeks to arrive.
