Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV)

The Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) is a work visa that allows you to work in New Zealand for an employer who Immigration New Zealand accredits. The AEWV allows businesses to sponsor foreign employees for work visas. Foreign employees sponsored through the AEWV program enjoy many benefits, including expedited processing and no labor market testing.

To be eligible to sponsor an employee through the AEWV program, businesses must first become accredited by Immigration New Zealand. To become accredited, businesses must demonstrate a commitment to employing local workers and complying with employment standards. Once accredited, businesses can sponsor employees for work visas under the AEWV program.

The Green List

The Green List of Occupations, commonly referred to as Green List is a new skills shortage list formulated by Immigration New Zealand to revive its skills gap after COVID-19. It replaces many older methods of skilled migrations and provides a clear path to residency for those eligible.

To be eligible for streamlined visa processing under the Green List, businesses must first become accredited by Immigration New Zealand. Once accredited, businesses can sponsor employees for work visas on a case-by-case basis under the Green List.

Specific Purpose Work Visa

The special purpose work visa allows businesses to sponsor foreign employees for work visas on a case-by-case basis. Foreign employees sponsored through the SPWV program may enjoy expedited processing, but labor market testing is required in most cases.

This visa is generally granted to employees of foreign companies operating in New Zealand. It may also be granted to visiting professionals. It is a versatile immigration tool and provides easy entry to people with clear professional intent attached to their visit.

Working Holiday Visa

New Zealand has working holiday arrangements with select countries, allowing citizens from these nations to explore the fun side of NZ while working part-time. However, the Working Holiday Visa conditions are not standard across all members.

A Working Holiday Visa allows you to holiday in New Zealand while you work a little. But, if you breach any visa conditions, you may land in deep waters, like deportation. You can count on Professional Visa Solutions to protect your immigration interests.

Skilled Migrant Category

If you can satisfy New Zealand’s needs of qualifications, experience and skills based on the points system used by Immigration New Zealand, Skilled Migrant Category Visa may be the perfect choice for you.

However, the Skilled Migrant Category Visa is an invitation-based system. You need to score a minimum number of points and satisfy the narrow qualification criteria to be eligible for this work visa-our Auckland-based immigration experts have some tricks up their sleeves to help you even if you fail to qualify during your self-assessment.
