Changes to Immigration Instructions for Migrant Workers in Healthcare and Supermarkets

Changes to Immigration Instructions for Migrant Workers in Healthcare and Supermarkets

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has made changes to immigration instructions to provide more flexible working conditions for specific migrant workers working in healthcare and supermarkets.

This is only applicable under the COVID-19 Framework, red and orange zone settings.

Until 31st January 2023, for any student visa, work visa, or interim visa holder (who held an eligible student or work visa immediately before this visa) working under COVID-19 Protection Framework for red and orange zones, the following will not be defined as ‘Work’:

  • Any tasks associated with the supply chain of a supermarket and was an employee of that supermarket on the day before the region entered the red or orange zones.
  • Any task related to working as a COVID-19 vaccinator/tester, or working as a critical health worker for their employer until this date.

These changes are effective from 3rd February 2022.
