New Zealand has two different types of visas for the citizens of certain countries: one for those from the Netherlands and one for those from Italy. This article will explain the difference between these visas, what they cover, and why you might want to apply for either one. NEW ZEALAND VISA FOR NETHERLANDS CITIZENS
What is a Working Holiday Visa?
If you are a citizen of either the Netherlands or Italy, and you would like to take a working holiday in New Zealand, you may be eligible for a working holiday visa.
This visa allows you to stay in New Zealand for up to 12 months and work while you are here. You will need to provide evidence that you have enough money to support yourself while you are in New Zealand, and that you will not be doing any work that is considered illegal in New Zealand.
You can apply for this visa online, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Mfat). The application process can take up to four weeks, so plan ahead if you want to apply.
Which Countries can Hold a Working Holiday Visa from New Zealand?
If you are a Dutch citizen or an Italian citizen and you want to take a holiday in New Zealand, you can apply for a working holiday visa. This visa is available to citizens of countries who have a working holiday program with New Zealand.
The requirements for the visa are that you must be 18 years old or older, have a valid passport, and not be in any kind of criminal penalty. You must also have at least £5000 ($8000) in your bank account when you arrive in New Zealand, so that you can start working as soon as you arrive. NEW ZEALAND VISA FOR ITALIAN CITIZENS
What does it mean to be Dutch or Italian?
Dutch and Italian nationals are two of the most common nationalities to obtain a New Zealand visa. Dutch nationals have a good reputation in New Zealand and enjoy relatively easy access to formal and informal employment, as well as social and cultural life. Italian nationals are also well-loved in New Zealand, with many people believing that they have a warm, welcoming personality. Both Dutch and Italian nationals are generally eligible for a New Zealand visa regardless of their occupation or income level.
