Multiple working visasIm due to go out to NZ in Feb 2013 to start my working holiday but after i have finished my working holiday in New Zealand I would love to go onto Canada and do one there but I'm not sure how easy it would be applying for one whilst I'm in NZ as I would of been out of the UK etc for a certain period of time. So what I was thinking is would I be able to apply for a Canadian visa now whilst I'm still in the UK and once granted I'd have the 12 months time limit to enter Canada from the day I receive my visa?
Hopefully doesn't sound too confusing I'm just struggling to find answers on the Internet. Any help much appreciated and hope I don't sound greedy I'm just wanting to try and experience as much as the world using working visas whilst I can rather than going back home settling again then going back off.

1Maybe do the Canada one first, then the NZ one.
Or do the NZ one and then an Aust one.
You can do the NZ WHV 23 months in one application as a UK citizen, and then apply for the Aust one (WHV) online. You don't have to be in your home country to apply for the Aust WHV.
Aust WHV is easy to get, just apply oline, important point is that you don't spend more than 3 months in a TB country, ie, India. If you do, then a chest xray is needed.
Assuming you have not done an Aust WHV already.

3OP, I hope you can figure out exactly whats been said!!
Short answer. There shouldnt be any problem applying for the Canadian one while in NZ. Most WHVs can be applied for online. The only problem I can see is the quota system for Brits. Applications for this year were closed by the end of May so you'll need to consider the timings. There is no quota for coming to NZ.

4Thanks both for your replies.
I did my working holiday in Australia last year (told u i was greedy) had the most wonderful experience, I came back to England to work this year and save money and have now booked flights over to NZ as my visa was granted the other day, therefore am considering trying to do Canada first as I have up until Nov 13 to enter NZ as that will be a secured place. I understand the Canadian applications get released sometime mid Dec. I just thought they may ask for police checks from certain countries I've spent so much time in etc or there may be a system to say ive got a WHV granted in another country already so wouldn't allow it.

5Now you're overthinking! We have no say in what Canada or any other country does with their WHVs.
