    Default Moving To NZ

    Hey there!
    Three friends and myself are about to graduate high school in the U.S. and are very interested in spending a year in New Zealand before college (definite return). We expect to get some sort of workers permit/visa, but the details are fuzzy to me thus far. I was wondering what steps to take to make this dream a reality, as it is a bit of a long shot. We plan to leave the U.S. after we have all turned 18, to keep things less complicated. Being focused mostly on Auckland right now, we are looking for something like an apartment (unless there's a better idea). If anyone could tell me what I need to do to get there... legally, and simply, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Kenneth. Welcome.

    If you want to do some work while you're in NZ, a Working Holiday Visa is what you need. You can only take on casual work with this which will probably suit you.

    You can apply online for this type of visa.

    I wish I'd done something like this back when. I've talked to a number of people who did something similar after college, and had a blast. Best of luck, Kenneth!
