How To get a New Zealand Working Holiday Visa / IRD # / Bank Account
Working Holiday Visas
WHVs should ideally be sorted before arriving in New Zealand. Generally it is much easier to obtain these whilst in your home country. You will have ready access to any documents that might be required. To find out more about getting a Working Holiday Visa check out the New Zealand Immigration website.
