Mexico working holiday scheme
A reciprocal working holiday scheme was signed between Mexico and New Zealand in Auckland on 7 September 2007 during the visit of Mexican President Felipe Calderón. It came into force 31 March 2008. 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.
