Working holiday visa general rules
- You must only apply under the working holiday scheme that matches the passport you intend to use to travel to New Zealand (for example, if you hold a Taiwan passport, you must apply under the Taiwan Working Holiday Scheme). Applying under a working holiday scheme that does not match your passport will result in your application being declined and may be viewed as providing false and misleading information. This may have an adverse impact on any future visa applications you submit.
- You should not practice lodging your application by applying under another scheme.
- The use of automated tools (including the use of scripts, web-crawlers, robots or screen-scrapers) to access, attempt access, or in any way apply to the Working Holiday Online Services is unauthorised.
