    When you're on a WHV you can only undertake temporary work for a certain time. If you want to learn a new skill sufficient to get you residency in the future, I would think this could take quite a time and you may need a Student Visa for that. Have you considered studying in NZ rather than applying for a WHV?

    Only immediate family members are eligible to sponsor you e.g. parents or brothers/sisters. Aunts, uncles, cousins etc. don't count as sponsors.
