About this program

The New Zealand working holiday visa programme is open to people aged 18-30. The visa itself allows you to work & travel in New Zealand for up to 12 months.

New Zealand has a travel time of over 24 hours from Ireland so it's quite the distance but for those that manage this feat, a beautiful & welcoming country awaits - be careful though, it has a reputation for stealing hearts before you leave!
