Hi people,<BR><BR>I need some help. I am going on a contiki on the 27th of December 2010 and only decided a few weeks ago to resign my job in NZ and try and stay in London after my tour to work. Does anyone know how i would go about getting my work visa from London or is it going to be better to come home to NZ and return to London later next year??<BR><BR>Any advice would be appreciated <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)--> thanks!

    I’m pretty sure you need to have applied for it and had it approved prior to arriving in the UK… My visa was attached to a page in my passport.

    Yep, you have to be in your country of residence to get a Visa.
