Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has changed immigration instructions for those applying for an Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) to work as a Chef.
Chefs are, henceforth, not required to hold an NZQF Level 4 or higher certificate which includes the credit and knowledge requirements of a New Zealand Certificate in Cookery (Level 4) or a similar overseas qualification.
These changes apply to any application for a work visa made under the AEWV instructions submitted before 10 October 2022 and have not been decided before that date.
Also, where an application for an AEWV was submitted before 18 October 2022 based on an offer of employment as a chef, and the application has not been decided before that date, the applicant does not need to have a certificate at NZQF level 4 or higher that includes the credit and knowledge requirements of a New Zealand Certificate in Cookery (Level 4), or comparable overseas qualification.
