Working Holiday Visas And Travel Insurance For New Zealand

With spring nearly here, now is the time to start planning your summer trip to NZ.  If you are eligible, the New Zealand working holiday visa is a perfect opportunity for you to enter our country and work legally.   We currently have agreements with 34 countries and the visa allows you to work here for 12 months, and up to 3 months for any one employer. 

You can apply online for your visa on the Immigration NZ website.   Here they provide a list of Countries that are part of the working holiday agreement, age and other criteria, and they outline the process you have to follow to successfully apply for your visa. 

If you arrive sometime over the next two months you will be just in time for fruit picking season.  During this season you can pick up work harvesting or packing fruit, vegetables and grapes, pruning trees, and help maintain crops.  The beginning of the season is usually about October for strawberries in the Waikato. You could stay picking strawberries right through to March, otherwise the summerfruit harvest starts in November in the Hawke’s Bay and December in Central Otago . 

All growers will provide on the job training, so all they require is for you to be fit, and have good vision!  Fruit harvesting is the perfect way to see the Country, and meet locals and other travellers while earning money. 

If you do plan on coming over you will need to have appropriate travel insurance, and if you are travelling to NZ on a work visa then you are also required to have adequate medical insurance. 

We have a wide range of policies available through a number of different insurers and prices can be tailored to match the length of your stay in New Zealand.  If you are traveling to other countries after your stay in NZ we can provide a range of travel insurance options.

We can also offer plans for Australian Working Holiday Visa holders, and for corporate entities that have staff living and working in New Zealand and/or Australia
