Hey All,

Does anyone if it's possible to get a WHV for Oz for a yr and also for NZ for a yr? To be used consecutively...
if it's possible or if after using the Oz WHV I would have to return home before applying for an NZ whv?

Might be a strange one but any answers are greatly appreciated!!!

Yes, you can apply for both visas from anywhere outside of their respective countries (and for the New Zealand WHV even from inside the country, if with a bit more hassle). So apply for a WHV for the one, travel there, and then sometime during your year there, apply for a WHV at the second country. (Or you could even apply days before leaving to the first country, as both WHVs have a one year period from the date they were issued before you need to start the visa. That's the way I did it myself, way back when. (So not a strange idea to do this at all.)) :)

You also don't need to have a (return) ticket out of the country for either country, only "sufficient funds" to purchase a ticket out of the country, so that shouldn't be a problem either.
