New Zealand

New Zealand is a state divided into two islands and is fairly remote with the nearest neighbour being Australia.

Working holiday visas (up to 2 year validity) are available to those under the age of thirty and there is a need for skilled workers.

North Island

Around 75% (3.3 million) of the population resides in the North Island, which has a warmer climate than the South Island and has beaches and much more opportunity for an outdoor lifestyle. The main residential areas are Auckland and Wellington.

South Island

Although larger than the North Island the population totals 25% (1.1 million) and those who prefer a quieter lifestyle reside here. Due to the nature of its terrain the South Island offers a more mountainous environment with opportunities for climbing and skiing. The main city is Christchurch.
