Changes to Work visa Rules
The Government has made short term changes to visa settings that will assist two more groups of migrants already in New Zealand to stay lawfully. These changes are being implemented using new powers of the Minister of Immigration through a special direction.
- Employer-assisted work visa extension aligned for partners and dependants
- Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) Worker visa extension
ImmigrationNZ will extend Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme visas by six months for those expiring from 18 August to 31 December 2020. This allows workers the opportunity to stay and work in New Zealand and give employers more certainty about worker availability for the coming season.
