    Default WHV - Extension?

    NZ Immigration site is down, but just wondering if anyone OTHER than UK people have ever found a way to stay longer than their 12 month WHV allows? Just curious - not dire at this stage as I'm teaching but contract ends Oct .. WHV expires end of November. I guess I can't get a work visa unless my principal offers me another job .. ugggh.. so annoying that UK citizens can get an extension but Canadians can't. Means NOTHING to be Commonwealth at this stage for us!

    Commonwealth means nothing to anyone any more sadly! The visa conditions are based on what both countries agree so Kiwis going to Canada will have the same conditions as Canadians in NZ. UK <-> NZ have the extension agreement in place. Anyway, I'm going on a bit there! To answer your question - no, WHV's are not extendible beyond their limit. They are a strict visa which only permits a fixed time. Sorry!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
