Hey,

Has anyone been to NZ on an IEP visa through Bunac? Any experiences or thoughts to share? Is the application process easy like a normal WHV?

It's my only option now I'm over the big 3-0!

Thanks!

Hi,
Ive looked into it. I was going to apply, but they had reached the allocation for 2012. I can apply for 2013 in Jan, but I leave for Sydney in December so wont be able to! :(

Im over the hill too apparently! Why do 18-30 yr olds have all the fun? lol!

I'm in the same (oldies) boat! Just came back from a year in Oz and was planning to go to NZ in Jan/Feb, but now that you can't apply until Jan, it's looking like I won't get there til about March at the earliest :( I'm so impatient! :)

I'm pretty sure the application process isn't too difficult, but as pointed out, there's some limits on the number of visas... the folks at IEP are good people (we work with them through GoXplore in Norway/Sweden), although I don't know how much you would actually deal with them after getting the visa?
