Mexico-New Zealand working holidays

This is Mexico's first Working Holiday Scheme, a reflection of the strong relationship between both countries

This scheme allows young New Zealanders and Mexicans between 18 and 30 years of age to enter the other country as a tourist, with the possibility to work temporarily as well as study short-term.

If you are a Mexican interested in a working holiday in New Zealand, please refer to the Immigration New Zealand website(external link). This is a 12 month visa open to Mexicans aged between 18-30 years. The number of visas is limited to 200. Applications open in March.
