Employer Information for Work Visas

If you employ foreign staff, then we can assist with work visa applications

If you employ foreign staff, or have a requirement to, we can advise on the process of getting work visas for these staff. 

Your candidates are able to be either in New Zealand or overseas at the time of the application.


Employee Visa Application Process

It is critical to hand in high quality employment applications to ensure a high chance of success. We understand employer frustration caused by increased application time on work visa applications due to inferior documentation and health issues. To achieve success in a short time frame, attention to detail is required in relation to:

  • Understanding exact requirements of the Immediate and Long Term Skills Shortage lists
  • Understanding how to provide evidence of your attempts to recruit New Zealanders, if required
  • Managing your listings with Work and Income, to meet Immigration New Zealand's market testing requirements, if required
  • Employment contracts - making sure these contain all key information required by INZ
  • Job descriptions


Gaining Accredited Employer Status

We can also help you assess your qualification as an accredited employer, with approval in principle from Immigration New Zealand to recruit overseas workers on a regular basis.
