think not.....

New zealand visa site says


When can I apply?
Generally, you need to apply before you leave your home country. However if you’re from Canada, the Netherlands, Malaysia or Singapore you can apply in New Zealand, provided:

you currently hold a student or visitor permit
you have been in New Zealand for 12 months or less
you meet the working holiday scheme requirements for your country.

have a look @ http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/work/workingholiday/howdoiapply/whencaniapply.htm

i checked it out before as i wasent sure wehter i wanted to do oz and nz or both and i may change my mind on the road, and from what i could tell you can only apply for your visa (if your irish or from th uk) when your in your home country. the new zealand visa is nearly identical to the australian.

Hi welshboy
I'm new to this forum but I can tell you that applying online for a working holiday visa couldn't be easier!! I received an email back saying I was granted my visa only 2 days after I submitted it!!

I applied online at www.immi.gov.au and it was for approx. £65.00.

Hope this helps!
