    Default 2nd working holiday visa?

    g day all, just wondering if anyone knows of a possibility of obtaining a second working holiday visa. I had A WH visa 7 years ago when i was 18. Now getting married and we want to give it a try. As a Carpenter i cant get a work visa or apply for residency as my skill is no longer a shortage as far as im aware. Please help me.

    Thanks

    Jono

    Welcome Jono .

    Unfortunately, it looks like you wouldn't be able to get another WHV according to this. I don't know of any way around this as what you would probably be told is to apply for a different type of visa. If you could get a job offer, you may be able to apply for a work visa as your job is still skilled even if it isn't on the shortages lists any longer. It would just be difficult to go on to apply directly for residency. If you got a job offer with an accredited employer or a kiwi can't be found to do the job, you should be OK.

    If I was previously approved a work visa or permit under a working holiday scheme, can I apply for a working holiday again?

    No. If you were previously approved a work visa or permit under a working holiday scheme, you are not able to apply for another working holiday again. It does not matter if you used your previous work visa or not.

    Hi there

    If you are an American citizen and under 35, you are able to apply for the Work NZ program through our parent organisation called BUNAC. Website is bunac.org and that allows you to come to NZ again on a special BUNAC visa if you have already used your working holiday maker one.

    We have a lot of people come through the program like you.
