From 18 April 2014, New Zealand Immigration has stopped accepting physical submission for Working Holiday Schemes.
“A change to immigration regulations means that all working holiday scheme (WHSs) applications must be submitted using the online application system,” says a statement issued by the immigration authority.
“Any manual applications received will be returned to the applicant.”
If you are considering applying under a WHS, you should apply using the online system for Working Holiday Scheme for New Zealand.
However, for the United Kingdom working holidaymakers who are in New Zealand on a 12-month visa, and want to lodge an application for the balance of the 23 months will be allowed to submit manual application. This second application must be lodged manually.
