NZ working holiday

Recommended Posts

Just a question for any of the guys who've applied for NZ working visas in the past. Did you need to submit police criminal record checks? On the government website it says they that they may be required for some visas. Going to have to get one from Canada if so and that seems like a bit tricky to get if out of the country!

 

Cheers!

No i never had to do anything like that when i booked my working holiday to new Zealand. Just filled out the form online and sent it to Immigration NZ and got it approved within 5 days

If you have previous convictions they'll want all the details and it's best to be honest. Otherwise, no, you won't need one.

No I didn't need a police report. Nz is awesome, go for it.

FYI I applied for an aussie working holiday visa whilst in nz. So ended up away for 2 yrs. Top times! It was about 20yrs ago though so may have changed.

Good to know! It seems like you just have to declare any convictions, haven't got any so not a problem. Can't believe how relaxed it seems compared to the Canadian system.

Wait until your at customs at Auckland airport, getting the third-degree from the big guy with the rubber glove on :P

 

I'm not sure I found it relaxed at all to be honest.. I remember doing police checks, doctors examination, chest xrays, proof of funds and return flight information..

alot depends on where you have been and what you have done.  but unless specifically asked to supply a background check then you dont need to.  Applies to the medical stuff. NZ is mint,  Wish id stayed out there for longer
