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.

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up to date is vital to ensure work visa applications don't get held up because the employment agreement is out of date.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