Extension for Employers Accredited Under the AEWV System

Extension for Employers Accredited Under the AEWV System

The New Zealand Government has announced an extension to the initial accreditation period for the Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) program, providing businesses with more certainty as they adjust to the new accreditation system.

Employers who are currently accredited under the AEWV program do not need to take any further action, as their accreditation will be automatically extended to 24 months from their initial approval date.

Accredited employers will receive notifications when the expiry dates on their current accreditation certificates are updated in the enhanced Immigration Online system. The Government aims to complete this process by 2 June 2023.

Existing accreditation applications

Employers currently processing an accreditation application will not need to take any additional action. Upon approval, the 12-month accreditation will be updated to 24 months in Immigration Online. Employers will be notified when their accreditation is approved.

New accreditation applications

  • Applications made before 4 July 2023 will receive 24-month accreditation upon approval.
  • Applications for first-time accreditation made after 4 July 2023 will receive 12-month accreditation upon approval.
