    Default BUNAC Visa for Brits sold out :-(

    Hi

    I've been offered a job, where they want me to stay longer than the end of my working holiday visa (specialist retail/admin role). No worries me thinks, i'll get a BUNAC visa, lo and behold it seems to be sold out for 2014. Bummer!

    I see they have closed their waiting list. Has anyone any experience of the visas becoming available again? Might have to go home and save it for another year.

    :-(

    I haven't seen that happen before. I didn't even know they had a quota that could get filled.

    Have you thought about seeing if you qualify for a work visa? http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migra.../requirements/
