How Malcolm Pacific Immigration can help you and your business
Recruiting from overseas
There is a lot to learn when you’re looking to recruit overseas employees. We can help you with the process, everything from finding out about how to employ migrants and the visa options available to bring them to New Zealand to how you can help your new employees settle when they arrive. Malcolm Pacific Immigration helps you understand your responsibilities for recruiting from overseas, taking you through the complete process.
New employee visa process
If you’re offering a job in New Zealand to a new employee from overseas, and they have the necessary qualifications to work, they will need to apply for a visa to work in New Zealand. Whether you’re thinking of hiring a new employee who is planning to work in New Zealand but isn’t a citizen or permanent resident, or if you’re hiring someone already on a work visa, we can help you understand the visa process and take the stress away to let you focus on your business.
From May 2022, Employer Accreditation is mandatory for businesses that want to employ migrant workers. Whether employing one or multiple migrant workers, accreditation is the first step towards a work visa being issued. This new type of accreditation means employers will need to apply even if they have been accredited under the past system. It is a three-step process, and there are costs and the potential for errors along the way. We can help your business navigate the maze.
Employment visa issue support
Employees with specialist skills or who can work in an area of skills shortage can apply for a work visa if they are offered employment. Keeping your company documentation up to date is vital to ensure work visa applications don't get held up because the employment agreement is out of date. At Malcolm Pacific Immigration, we can audit your documentation, help answer your questions, provide free in-house seminars, and so much more.

Employer Accreditation – what’s the latest?
Applications for employer accreditation closed at the end of June 2021. Applications lodged before the closure date are still being processed. New applications for accreditation open on 9 May 2022. The process will be quite different to what employers have experienced in the past.
Some relief for employers to maintain workforce
The government has moved the introduction of the new employer accreditation process across to mid-2022. At the same time, the Minister of Immigration announced new work visa rules for migrant workers who are already in New Zealand and working full time.
Employer accreditation becomes mandatory
Employers of migrant workers must become accredited from 1 November 2021 before work visa applications can be processed. Most employers are not accredited. Those that are accredited will have to roll into the new system when it goes live in late September.
