NZ to expand Working Holiday Scheme with Singapore

New Zealand is relaunching and expanding its Working Holiday Scheme with Singapore and will welcome applications from May 5, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced today.

During her first international trip since the Covid pandemic began, the Prime Minister met with young people in Singapore who have been on the Scheme or are interested in applying.

The Prime Minister told them that from May 5:
The number of working holiday scheme visas available to Singaporeans rises to 300 from 200
The age of eligibility is extended to 18-30 years of age
The Visa length is extended to 12 from 6 months, and

Applicants no longer need to be university students but must have undertaken tertiary study in the previous two years.

“We very much forward to welcoming Singaporean working holidaymakers back to New Zealand,” Jacinda Ardern said.  
The Scheme was part of the Singapore New Zealand Enhanced Partnership announced in May 2019 but the global Covid pandemic prevented it from being operationalised.
