Quoting kittyhorsman

I'm looking at it now, and it says I need to give a medical certificate
and chest X-ray certificate. Im kind of confused about what they are, and how to get them. Did you have to give those as well?


There are certain doctors who are approved by the NZ immigration service to carry out immigration medicals. The NZ immigration website has a list of those panel doctors and from looking at your location it appears Manchester is the closest to you. I can recommend City Centre visa medicals (the second one on the list on their website) on St John's Street as that's where I went for my medical and they were pretty quick - I had my results within a few days.

thank you for the advice bex76, i've applied for the visa and they are going to ring me tomorrow, so they should tell me then whether I need a med check or not :)

Hey all,

Going to be travelling to NZ december/january time. WIll also get the working holiday visa and would like to stay for the amount of time possible. I have also been told to get the kiwi experience, as the bus goes around the island and is unlimited travel for the year. So I was thinking of getting off at each stop and exploring and then after all the stops have been done. Going to back to my favourite place and settling down for a bit and get a job and place to live etc. before i decide to move about again.
I'm going alone and it would be a lot better to share the experience with someone else.

Hey, I'm heading out the start of October on a years working visa alone. I'm starting off in Auckland and hoping to head to most places. Would be great to meet other people going around the same time as well.

Hey, I'm arriving in Auckland middle of september, travelling on my own so would be good to meet up with some people once I'm there.
