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.

Employer Accreditation and Recruiting From Overseas in NZ

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.

Employer Accreditation New Employee Work Visa Process New 1

Employer accreditation

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.

Employer Accreditation Advice From Licensed Immigration Advisers

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up to date is vital to ensure work visa applications don't get held up because the employment agreement is out of date.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.
