From Monday 4 July 2022, migrant workers outside New Zealand can apply for work visas. This includes the new Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV).
Do note that as per the new AEWV policy, employers need to be accredited and have completed a job check before they are able to hire a migrant from offshore.
Partners and dependent children of work visa applicants can also apply for a visa from Monday 4 July 2022.
This development makes it easier for migrant workers to bring their families with them to New Zealand, making NZ an attractive place to live and work.
