You must also apply for your Working Holiday Visa – required to enter and work in New Zealand. We'll provide you with the best advice and ensure your eligibility for the New Zealand Working Holiday Visa Scheme. Au Pairs applying for a New Zealand Student Visa must apply and pay the relevant fees directly - we do not provide assistance for Student Visa applications. Please note, if you are applying for a Working Holiday Visa, you must complete this process yourself. Payment of $165.00 NZD must be made directly to the New Zealand Department of Immigration. Please visit the New Zealand Department of Immigration website for more information.
We provide comprehensive travel insurance through Cover-More – one of New Zealand's most trusted insurers since 1986. You must have insurance as an Au Pair with Au Pair Link – for any unforeseen medical expenses, accidents or lost/stolen property etc during your year as an Au Pair in New Zealand. It is mandatory that you take our insurance policy as we need to be satisfied that you are appropriately covered.
To view our insurance policy details and the schedule of benefits please download the Cover-More Essentials brochure. Our Au Pairs are covered under the Cover-More Essentials Policy with a standard excess of only $100.00 per claim.
