Bubble Whammy – New Zealand is open for Gap Years!

Our friends from New Zealand have been short of their regular fix of Aussie accents for some time now. So let’s not keep them waiting any longer – Gap Years to NZ are officially all systems go! 

We’re incredibly excited to announce that with the commencement of the Trans Tasman bubble, the next group of Letz Live NZ gappies will be arriving in Auckland next week. 

The countdown is on

Our new gap year enthusiasts will be meeting in Auckland for a three day induction. This will include a Contiki day trip to Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves. 

After this they’ll head to their boarding school placements to begin the adventure of a lifetime. Living and working abroad, making friends for life and experiencing all that New Zealand has to offer.

New Zealand is open for gap years

The Trans Tasman bubble opens up travel between Australia and New Zealand without the need for quarantine. As New Zealand is open for gap years – all you have to do when arriving is fill out the declaration form and you’re on your way. 

Lorna Cairns, New Zealand Country Manager at Letz Live has said…”I am so excited to be welcoming our Aussie gappies back to New Zealand next week. We’ve got a really exciting induction program planned and it will be great to meet in person all of the wonderful travellers embarking on their big adventure.”

With breathtaking landscapes, modern cities, endless adventures and opportunities to travel, this bubble with our Kiwi cousins is a pretty good deal. You could be skiing or snowboarding in Queenstown, surfing the fabled points of Raglan or kayaking the famous fjords before you know it.

The experience of a lifetime

Kaye Huxter from Western Cape, SA took a gap year to NZ with Letz Live last year and said, I would not change my placement this year for anything. The people that surrounded me this year helped me to grow into the person I am. They helped me discover who I was and what I want to surround myself with in life.”  You can read more about her experience here.
