New Zealand Welcomes 100 Young Slovaks for 12 Months

A 100 young people from Slovakia will have the chance to live and work in New Zealand for a fixed time, while the same number of Kiwis will visit Slovakia, thanks to an agreement signed yesterday by interior minister Daniel Lipsic and New Zealand ambassador Philip Griffiths.

Young people aged 18-35 can apply for the work vacation programmes, allowing them to stay and work in the other country for up to one year. This makes a difference from the three-month stay permitted for Slovaks to date. Ambassador Griffiths says the programme will give young Slovaks the chance to try New Zealand with the prospect of moving there.


  1. I dont do interviews ….perhaps you should ask that Tom Nicholson fellow . He always claims to have an exciting life …Either the Mafia or the Secret Service are often threatening to kill or go to war with him …Sadly they appear to have failed, or perhaps it never really happened as he claims ?

    Ordinarily people live and learn Moel. You just live.

  2. Why don’t you go out and create some George and then we will write about it.
    Its a shame the world marches to its own drum and not yours, eh!
    I could write a general interest article on Sciurophobia, that might be of interest to you given you seem to worry about it, maybe we could interview you. ūüôā

  3. Good News must be in very short supply today ? No visit by some minor Minister to another of the former Russian outpost dictatorships, to discuss cross border co-operation and cultural ties then ?
