INZ announces that by way of Special Direction every person who:

  • Is in New Zealand on 1st November 2021, and
  • Holds Working Holiday Scheme or a Working Holidaymaker Extension temporary visa (Working Holiday Visa) with an expiry date between 21st December 2021 and 30th June 2022 (inclusive)

Will be extended for a period of 6 months from the date on which they would have otherwise expired.

This special directive is made to manage and control or mitigate the outbreak of COVID-19 or its effects. This special direction addresses the labour market’s continued consequences as a result of COVID-19 by permitting immigration settings to be more flexible so that existing migrant workers can continue to fill labour shortages while border restrictions remain in place.

Unless withdrawn sooner, this special direction will expire on June 30, 2022.
