Working holiday scheme

A reciprocal Working Holiday Scheme (WHS) between New Zealand and Slovakia opened in April 2012. The WHS allows Slovakians aged between 18 and 30 years to work or study during a holiday stay in New Zealand for up to 12 months. A total of 100 WHS places are offered to Slovakians per year.  Places become available each year in April and are filled within a short period of time.
