The Minister of Immigration has extended onshore Working Holiday visas and Supplementary Seasonal Employment (SSE) visas that expire between 21 June and 31 December 2021 for six months. The border and labour market situation will be monitored and these visas may be extended again if necessary.
Working Holiday visa holders will continue to be able to work in any employment, except permanent employment. Supplementary Seasonal Employment visa holders will be given open work rights to work in any sector when their visas are extended.
Immigration New Zealand will contact visa holders by 25 June 2021 confirming their extension.
