    Default WHV - Stay subject to grant of entry permission

    My Working Holiday Visa ha been approved! And I am so happy about it that I want to make sure that I will not mess this up.
    Visa condition says "Stay subject to grant of entry permission". What does it means?

    Can the amount of funds (money) that I have affect the length of time that I can stay in New Zealand?
    If I only have the minimum amount of money required ($4,200), will that shorten my allowed time in NZ?

    Hope anyone can help me understand these things.
    Thank you in advance

    Congratulations!

    I think that all that means is that you have to get your passport stamped at Immigration upon arrival in NZ - it is not another big formality.

    And no, there isn't any connection between how much money you have and the length of stay you are allowed. After all, it's a WORKING holiday visa, so the expectation is that you will be able to top up your money with earnings from jobs you find in the country.

    Thanks JandM. I am really excited about this.
