Everything You Need to Know About Applying for a New Zealand Visa from the US or Taiwan

Read Time:4 Minute, 55 Second

When planning a trip to New Zealand, most people will assume. They will be applying for and receiving their visa from within the country itself. As it turns out, however, that’s not necessarily the case. In fact, you can apply and receive your visa in one of two different countries – New Zealand. Or Taiwan – depending on where you currently reside. In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know about getting your visa from either location and the different requirements you may have to meet along the way!

Why you should apply for a New Zealand (NZ) visa

A New Zealand (NZ) visa allows you to live and work in NZ, visit family and friends, travel, study, and conduct business while you’re there. The type of visa you will apply for will depend on how long you wish to stay in NZ, your ability to show that you can support yourself financially, and which countries are on your passport. If you want to live in NZ permanently, then your first step is getting approval through an employer sponsorship scheme. If not (for example if you’re just looking at a working holiday) then there are other options. This guide explains it all. NEW ZEALAND VISA from US

Visas and Working in NZ

So, how do you get a New Zealand visa? That depends on where you’re coming from. If you’re applying from within New Zealand, it’s pretty simple. Immigration New Zealand has simplified its application process and now offers visa services at selected service centers across the country, making it even easier to apply while you’re already in New Zealand.

What does it take to get an NZ working holiday visa?

In order to get an NZ working holiday visa, you must be between 18 and 30 years old. Additionally, you must have at least $4,200 in your bank account (in three separate months). And finally, you can’t be traveling on a dependent visa; you need to be eligible for an independent visa. For example, if your parents are living in New Zealand (as an expat), then that would not allow you entry into New Zealand on a working holiday visa because it’s still considered dependent. Check out our guide above to learn everything else you need know about applying for an NZ working holiday visa!

Who qualifies for an NZ working holiday visa?

New Zealand’s working holiday visa is an open-ended temporary visa. It’s designed primarily for people aged 18-30 years who want to travel and work in New Zealand. There are three subclasses of New Zealand’s working holiday visa: NZ Working Holiday (Subclass 417) – This applies if you’re aged 18-30 years old, and you’ve never been in Australia on a Work and Holiday visa. The maximum length of stay is 12 months; NEW ZEALAND VISA from TAIWANESE

How long can I stay in NZ on a working holiday visa?

It’s important to know how long you can stay in New Zealand on your working holiday visa, so that you know if it will work for your plans. The good news is that no matter what country you are from, you will be allowed up to 18 months in New Zealand on your first working holiday visa. If you need more time, it’s possible to apply for an extra year by reapplying when your current visa expires (this is called staying past 90 days). Keep in mind that every working holiday maker has six months after their first arrival date during which they must find employment and get a Work Permit. If they fail, they must leave New Zealand immediately.

Money Matters and Insurance

When you move abroad, it’s very important that you are fully aware of your financial status. Even if you aren’t moving far away, there could be some changes you need to make before relocating. For example, it’s possible that one currency is more valuable than another. However, depending on how much cash you take with you and how long it takes for your bank accounts and credit cards to be set up in your new location, it may not be possible for you to convert funds at all. Fortunately, New Zealand has agreements with over 120 countries allowing their citizens and residents entry into New Zealand without an official visa; hence they don’t need one when entering NZ either.

Documents you will need

your completed application form (for which you will need: your passport; two recent passport-sized photos; and a bank statement indicating that you have at least NZ$3,000 available); your visa application fee (generally NZ$180). If you are over 16 years of age and are applying on your own behalf then there is no requirement for someone else to consent on your behalf. If however, you are under 16 years of age, you will need written consent from both parents or guardians. A parent’s/guardian’s driver’s license will not be accepted as proof of identity. If one parent is overseas, he/she must also send copies of both sides of his/her passport along with an affidavit stating why they cannot sign in person.

Finding Work in NZ as an International Student

More students apply for work visas than any other type of visa. Employer sponsorship is by far and away one of, if not THE most common way, that New Zealand employers fill jobs. As an international student (or migrant) it’s your responsibility to find out what you need to do in order to get a visa allowing you to take up employment in New Zealand. This is often referred to as Employer Assisted Category 1 or EAC1 sponsorship. The good news? That’s exactly what we’re here to help with!
