Q: What happens once I’ve joined an Adventure?
A: Once you have joined onto an adventure, you will receive your log in details to fill in your application form. Once you have completed the application form, we will send further details of what happens next. For more information see 'How WE works'.
Q: Can I use my Adventure anywhere in New Zealand?
A: YES! Absolutely, we have connections all across New Zealand, so everything still applies. If you choose to come to Christchurch, we can arrange a time to meet with you and help you with any questions or issues you might be having. If you are not in Christchurch, we can also still help over a phone call or Skype.
Q: When is it best to book an Adventure?
A: We usually recommend giving yourself a week to complete the application form, but there aren't rules! You can even become a We Traveller when you're already in NZ.
Q: What happens on arrival into New Zealand?
A: If you have an airport transfer with us, we'll welcome you off the plane! If you don't, we can book you one! Or, if you are making your own way from the airport, we would have arranged a bank appointment for you for your first few days of arrival, plus any travel plans and whatever else is included in your Adventure. We're here to help at any time pre or post arrival, so feel free to get in touch.
Q: How do I get my bank appointment sorted?
A: Once you fill in your application form and we know your arrival details, we'll get you booked in and email you the details. It's as easy as that!
Q: What is my IRD number and how do I get one?
A: Your IRD number is a work number that is used by the tax department. We will assist you by giving you the forms to fill in and the address to send it to. We will give you as much or as littler assistance with filling it in as you need.
Q: How do I connect with other WE Travellers?
A: We have a private Facebook Group that all our We Travellers are added to when they join. We will also introduce you via Facebook to the other WE Travellers coming to your NZ Life session. Let's not forget all the sweet as events we're hosting for everyone too!
Q: How long does it take to get work in New Zealand?
A: It really depends on what you're looking for. There is plenty to go around, especially in the major cities, but we will give you plenty of assistance and advice to make it a short and sweet process.
Q: I’ve heard things are expensive in New Zealand, what can I expect?
A: You have heard right in some aspects, things like alcohol can be more expensive than you're used to. Don't forget that you'll be earning in New Zealand Dollars and so things are all relative. From our experience, things are pretty much the same as Europe and the USA.
Q: Who can join a WE Travel program?
A: Anyone who is applying for or already on a working holiday or work visa in New Zealand. Don't hesitate to ask if you aren’t sure, but we can pretty much help anyone!
