Tips for employers


  • Looking for Talent? The travel bubble with Australia means employers can recruit from across the Tasman. However, for applicants who are not Australian citizens – get immigration advice. There are more than a million people on temporary visas in Australia plus plenty of permanent residents.

  • Visa rules will keep changing throughout 2021. Any questions send a message to lukas@malcolmpacific.com

  • More border exemptions are rolling out as places in Managed Isolation/Quarantine open. If you have a need to recruit highly skilled workers from overseas, take advice before securing MIQ vouchers.

  • Keep copies of job advertisements if roles are filled by migrant workers. Plus keep a record of training courses you send any staff on. In the new normal you will have to prove you are training New Zealanders.

  • Make sure your personnel records are up to date. This includes records of pay, hours worked, visa status (including kiwis). Proving you employ New Zealanders will become part of the new landscape.
