Level of proficiency in English
An applicant’s proficiency in English is deemed to be at least functional if they:
provide evidence that their tertiary qualification was gained from an institution where all tuition was in English, or
produce a certificate from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) showing they achieved an average level of 4.5 over the four components of the test. The IELTS certificate must be no more than two years old at the time the application is lodged.
*You are required to hold sufficient funds for the duration of your visit and for the purchase of an outward ticket from New Zealand. Such evidence may be requested on arrival at the border.
You will need to meet our health requirements for temporary entry to New Zealand.
Our Working Holiday Schemes online system will tell you whether you need to send us a completed medical and/or Chest X-ray certificate. This is based on the maximum length of stay that you are allowed under your country's working holiday scheme (not your intended stay), along with your responses to our health requirements questions.
You will receive full instructions on how to submit the certificate(s) in an automated email shortly after submitting your application. Depending on your scheme, the certificate must be received by Immigration New Zealand within 15 or 20 consecutive days from the date your application is submitted. The email will also advise you of this so it is important that you read it thoroughly.
You will need to meet our character requirements for temporary entry to New Zealand.
