Work in New Zealand

Work Visa gives an applicant the ability to take a job in a country other than the one in which the applicant is a citizen.

There are different types of work visas. One kind may require the holder to have a local employer as a sponsor and to return home if he/she loses the job. Another visa may be more general and may allow the holder to work in any job for a certain period of time.

Work visas are generally temporary, though most may be renewed. A prior job offer from a sponsoring employer fast tracks the processing of a Work Permit. A work permit is a general term for a legal authorization which allows an applicant to take employment overseas. Consultancies will accept the profiles which have a higher chance of success. And those who meet the evaluation criteria based on the selected country’s eligibility will be accepted.

Another type of visa is Working Holiday Visa, which is a residence permit that allows travellers to undertake employment (and sometimes study) in the country issuing the visa for the purpose of supplementing their travel funds. For many young people, holding a working holiday visa enable them to experience living in a foreign country, without undergoing the usual costly expenses of finding work sponsorship in advance or going on expensive university exchange programs. Most working holiday visas are offered under reciprocal agreements between certain countries, to encourage travel and cultural exchange between their citizens.
