New Zealand’s entertainment industry is thriving, and many overseas workers dream of landing a job in this field. From performers to directors, the industry welcomes a wide range of talented professionals from across the globe. However, if you are one of the many overseas workers looking to make it in this industry, there is an essential step you must take before securing a job. In this blog post, we’ll discuss why it is crucial to consult with a New Zealand entertainment industry body before your employer offers you a job and how you can make this process easier with the help of Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd.
Firstly, let’s get a better understanding of what we mean by an overseas entertainment industry worker. This term includes performers, producers, directors, crew members, and support personnel for any of the above. If you fall under any of these categories and are planning to work in the New Zealand entertainment industry, it is recommended that you or your employer consult with a New Zealand entertainment industry body to check if they support your work visa application. This can save you time and money in the long run.
The reason this step is so crucial is that it can make or break your chances of obtaining a work visa for the New Zealand entertainment industry. Without the support of a recognised industry body, your chances of obtaining a work visa are significantly reduced. Having a body that supports your application can be the difference between securing employment in your desired field in New Zealand or having to look elsewhere.
So, what exactly do we mean by a recognised industry body? These are the organisations representing New Zealand entertainment workers with your skills. If you are unsure which organisation to contact, Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd can help you navigate the process. They will refer to the list provided by INZ and guide you on which organisation you should approach for support.
Once you have identified the organisation you need to contact, your employer can then approach them for support. This involves submitting an agreement to support your work visa application to Immigration New Zealand (INZ), which confirms the organisation’s support of your application. With this support, your chances of obtaining a work visa in the entertainment industry are significantly greater.
In conclusion, if you are an overseas worker seeking a job in the New Zealand entertainment industry, we urge you to take this crucial step of consulting with a New Zealand entertainment industry body. Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd can make this process easier for you and ensure that you are on the right track towards securing a work visa. Remember, having the support of a recognised industry body is a key factor in obtaining a work visa in the New Zealand entertainment industry. So, take the necessary steps, and achieve your dreams of working in this fast-growing sector of New Zealand’s economy.
