    Not necessarily. I may be ageing, but a lot of folks on here are quite young.

    Firstly, I don't think you need a job offer to renew your passport unless you're a kiwi and want to do it back home, but then you wouldn't be talking about getting a visa. Secondly, I don't know how much you know about getting into NZ but it ain't that easy. You would need certain skills the country needs and a skilled job offer before you could apply for a work visa. If you want a quick fix (and it sounds like you want to get out of where you are now in a hurry) you could try applying for a Working Holiday Visa if you're 30 years old or under (and I guess you must be if you reckon the rest of us are ageing) . This is only for a temporary stay in NZ. As you talk in pounds sterling, I'll assume you are currently in the UK.

    I can't tell from your post if you want to go to NZ temporarily or permanently and whether you have any job skills and qualifications, so we need to know more about your situation before going any further.

    I don't know of any job sites that deal with those areas particularly but the link I gave you in a previous thread is geared to people on WHVs. Many of the other job sites are looking for permanent employees rather than temps. Can you get any assistance from your family/friends who are already in NZ? They would be the best ones to help out as they are 'on the ground'.
