New Zealand Embassy Vienna, Austria
Working holiday scheme
A reciprocal Working Holiday Scheme (WHS) was signed between New Zealand and Austria on 15 December 2011. The WHS will allow Austrians aged between 18 and 30 years to work or study during a holiday stay in New Zealand for up to six months. There will be 100 places for each country. The WHS is not yet in operation and so applications for a WHS visa cannot yet be accepted.
Applications for Austrian citizens wanting to participate in the WHS will open at midnight New Zealand time on 18 April 2012.
