    Default How can I stay

    Hi there,
    I'm in New Zealand on a working holiday visa from Ireland which expires on 31st August. I have a post-graduate qualification in town planning however I am not using this qualification here. I work in unskilled employment here and want to know if there is any way I can extend my stay in New Zealand. I'm finding it really hard to get information on this so any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you!!

    If you have worked in a horticulture or viticulture job for at least 3 months, you could be eligible to apply for an extra 3 months' stay in NZ but, other than that, unless you are able to find a skilled job or one that a kiwi can't be found to do and apply for a work permit or apply as a student, I don't think there is a way to stay longer in the country.
