Latin America visa information
As a New Zealander there are several working holiday options in Latin America due to reciprocal agreements, which are an amazing way to really experience the local culture and language. If you're wanting to do a volunteer project through STA Travel, you'll be happy to know that you don't need a working visa because as long as you're only in each country for 90 days, you can simply travel on the holiday visa rules.
Please bear in mind that visa requirements change from time to time. Make sure you obtain complete and up-to-date information before making your work or travel plans.
