Care Workforce Work to Residence Visa for New Zealand

Care Workforce Work to Residence Visa for New Zealand

There is a huge demand for healthcare workers in New Zealand, especially since the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world.

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has introduced a new care workers’ residence pathway. This work-to-residence pathway for care workers will be available to apply for from September 2023.

The purpose of this pathway is to support the increasing demand for care and support workers due to New Zealand’s ageing population and requirements in other healthcare frameworks.

To be eligible for the NZ Care Workforce Work to Residence Visa you must –

  • work in a role that is on the Care Workforce Sector Occupation List
  • worked in that role for at least 24 months in New Zealand
  • be paid at least NZD 25.25 per hour (Level 4)
  • ensure that the employer is accredited

Some of the occupations included in the Care Workforce Sector Occupation List include Aged and Disabled Carers, Nursing Support Workers, Personal Care Assistants, and Diversional Therapists, to name a few.

There is no cap limit for the number of migrant workers that can be granted a Care Workforce Work to Residence Visa NZ.
