Processing of Accredited Employer Work Visa applications
Following a recent system upgrade, all applications for Accredited Employer Work Visas (AEWV) received since Sunday, 18 September 2022 will now be processed in the enhanced Immigration Online system and take advantage of enhancements that allow for quicker processing.
Since 4 July, when the AEWV opened, applications for AEWVs have been partially processed in the AMS system to allow INZ to complete further testing of the enhanced system. Applications received before 18 September will continue to be processed in this way.
It is INZ’s aim to be able to process complete, decision-ready applications within 20 working days. INZ encourages applicants to provide supporting documentation or requested information as soon as they are able to, to ensure that applications can progress through their system to a decision as quickly as possible.
Users of the enhanced system can also refer to the User Guide for support with making an application.
