New Zealand: 2024 Working Holiday Schemes Cap

Last Updated on January 29, 2024

Key Points  

  • New Zealand introduced its Working Holiday scheme cap limits and open dates for 2024  


The government of New Zealand introduced cap limits for its Working Holiday Schemes for 2024. The update includes the number of places available and the date on which each scheme will open throughout 2024.

Once each scheme opens, applications will be open until the quota is filled. Once the quota is filled, the scheme will close until 2025. Working holiday schemes that still have places left from 2023 will remain open until the quota is reached. The quota will then reset on the 2024 opening date.
