Internships abroad have better advantages than interning locally, they are unique and very versatile. Internships abroad are directly linked to potential career paths, this also allows students to value their investment in an experience abroad.
Location and Hospitality
Kiwi’s are very welcoming to foreign visitors, and companies appreciate and value international trainees. New Zealand is a small country and can offer as many internships as in the most populous countries but the companies that recruit really need trainees. Therefore it gives a true experimentation of the real world of work unlike other countries.
Key Information about Visas
You can intern in New Zealand with a three-month visitor’s permit, foreign interns can also apply for a Student and Trainee Work Visa, this will permit interns to have little flexibility if they want to stick around for a little longer once their internship concludes. To obtain this visa, you need a confirmation of internship or an offer of employment and also need proof of some savings (to show you can support yourself while in the country), and you will only be able to work for the employer who gave you the visa. Take it in advance because getting a visa can take up to a month.
How to Find Accommodation
Finding a place to live is simple in New Zealand. Most young Kiwis leave home to do a flat sharing (to reduce living cost). You can search online for rooms, and find a fully-furnished room without needing to sign a contract. For students, it is also easier to find host families, even if it is only for some time or to find a real housing once there.
