Work New Zealand lets you spend up to one incredible year experiencing the ultimate working holiday or gap year in New Zealand whilst stopping off at some of the most exotic spots in the world on the way there and back.

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world with an incredibly diverse natural environment. From the giant sand dunes of Ninety Mile Beach, to the bubbling mudpools of Rotorua, the vineyards of Marlborough and the ice capped peaks and glaciers of the Southern Alps, New Zealand is a country that will never cease to amaze you.

In addition, work in New Zealand is relatively easy to find and overseas visitors are made to feel really welcome. BUNAC’s IEP visa allows participants to go back to New Zealand for a second year if they would like to return after using their Working Holiday Visa.   


There are two visas that allow you to live, work and travel in New Zealand on a flexible basis; however, both programs provide you with full support for the duration of your Work New Zealand experience.

Working Holiday Visa: you must be aged 18-30 and have never held a Working Holiday Visa for New Zealand previously

IEP Work Exchange Visa: you must be aged 18-35 and physically present in the USA for the duration of the application process.
