Visa to Work

Getting a Visa to Work in New Zealand

New Zealand is a fantastic country to live and work in but you need a work visa to do so. You might be able to get a work visa if you have a job offer because your skills are currently needed in NZ, i.e. the employer you are going to work for must have tried and failed to find a New Zealander to do the job. You may also get a work visa if you’re coming for a particular work-related purpose or you’ve been studying but would now like to work. You might also be able to get a work visa if your partner’s here. If successful you can also come to New Zealand to work.

Each visa has different criteria and different application processes. You can find out more about the various visas that let you work in New Zealand on our website. Alternatively, you can contact us to speak directly to one of our advisers. Call today on 09 3790219.
