Canada Adds to Woes For Young Kiwis Planning Their Big OE

Young New Zealanders planning a Big OE are finding it continues to get more complicated to organise as Canada changes its working holiday visa regulations for Kiwi travellers. 

The move follows more restrictions in Britain on New Zealanders wishing to work there.

Young New Zealanders planning a Big OE are finding it continues to get more complicated to organise as Canada changes its working holiday visa regulations for Kiwi travellers. The move follows more restrictions in Britain on New Zealanders wishing to work there.

Citizens Immigration Canada (CIC) has just announced the 2016 quota for New Zealanders allowed into the country on a working holiday and changes to the International Experience Canada (IEC) application process mean more young Kiwis than ever are fighting for a place.

Working overseas is now such a tricky enterprise to organise that increasingly people are calling on expert services, says Vicki Kenny, founder of International Working Holidays, the specialist overseas employment agency.

She says: `The Canadian Working Holiday application process is now so competitive that receiving an invitation after 12 months on the waiting list still won't guarantee that the applicant will obtain a working holiday visa. We’ve produced an indepth guide for our clients on how to navigate the new Working Holiday Visa process, which not only makes applying, but ensures participants get their timing right, so that they have the visa for the summer or winter resort season in Canada.'

The strict regulations allocate a limited amount of working holiday visas every year to countries all around the globe. New Zealand quotas have been set at just 2,500 working holiday visas a year, while across the Tasman, Australia remains the only country to have a reciprocal no limits agreement with Canada.

Prior to the latest changes, New Zealand applicants lucky enough to pass the screening and registration process joined in a mad rushed for placements due to the CIC's first come, first serve policy.

Young New Zealanders planning to take their big OE in the UK are already finding it more difficult to get visas and jobs.

Vicki Kenny says: ` It used to be simple to get a UK visa, but these days if you make just one mistake the application will get sent back and you will have to reapply and pay another application fee. Since they don’t tell you what you have got wrong you might end up doing it all again and still have the application rejected. It’s a big risk if your flights are already booked and you get it wrong. A lot of kids choose bargain flights, which don’t allow refunds or date changes.

‘You really do need a specialist service these days. We’ve been doing this for so long, we know exactly what the immigration authorities are looking for. We fill out the form for our clients, which takes the stress out of it.’
