Employer Accreditation

Immigration New Zealand has increased annual salary for employing overseas workers by accredited employers from $55,000 to $79,576 effective from 7 October 2019. INZ has also announced mandatory accreditation by early 2021 of all employers wishing to employ overseas workers. Mandatory accreditation will be introduced in phases and fully implemented by early 2021. Call us or submit Employer Enquiry Form, if you wish to employ overseas skilled workers and/or seek Employer Accreditation.

  3. talent work visa applications are prioritised;
  4. residence pathway for employees;
  5. employees are granted work-to-residence visa for 30 months;
  6. after having worked with the employer for 24 months, employees can apply for residence visa;
  7. committed workers due to residence pathway available;

Validity of Accreditation
