There are 3 steps for hiring a migrant worker on the Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV):
Once New Zealand employers are accredited with Immigration New Zealand (INZ), they can hire migrant workers on the new AEWV when no New Zealanders are available to do the job and there is a genuine skill or labour shortage.
The NZ Government has not yet decided whether there will be any exemptions to the median wage rule. Also, no decision has been reached as to whether any additional restrictions will apply for some roles.
Employers must advertise a job for at least 2 weeks before applying for a job check. This is for those roles where advertising is a requirement.
Until the employers are accredited under the new AEWV policy, they cannot apply for a job check.
