NTIS New Zealand offer a full support service for
Japanese and speakers of other languages.
Our members receive free help in finding work,
accommodation, language schools and other issues such
as where to go for health, education, tax and business
Our free support line is open 24 hours a day. You will
always speak to a local resident in your native
language. This service is based in Nelson, New Zealand
and open for people who travel to New Zealand to
study, for a working holiday or for long term travel.
At present this service is primarily for Japanese. For
more details view our Japanese language pages or
contact us in English to find out more.
Why use this service?
NTIS New Zealand support service is very special and
brings special privileges that other travellers do not
Some examples are as follows.
One of our members wanted to see the world famous
World of Wearable Arts festival. The tickets had
already sold out for this event. NTIS New Zealand were
able to obtain tickets for our member. This was
because certain tickets were available for local
schools and business but not for general sale outside
Through it's local contacts NTIS New Zealand were able
obtain well paid local employment for one of our
members. Usually good employment is difficult to find
for working holiday people - the most common
employment is fruit picking or cleaning.
Phone calls and Postage retrieval and forwarding.
One of our members used NTIS New Zealand to collect
mail and telephone calls whilst they were travelling
around New Zealand. NTIS New Zealand were able to
receive important phone calls from relatives in Japan
and pass this information on quickly.
Free luggage storage
Our support service includes free luggage storage. One
of our members stored luggage with NTIS New
Zealand for 6 months while he travelled New Zealand.
This could have cost between NZ$1800 - NZ$3000 had he
not been our support member and stored his luggage
elsewhere Even after he had paid our support fee he
saved over NZ$1000 - enough for 2 return flights to
Australia from New Zealand.
