Miscellaneous INZ updates

Eligibility requirements for registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand extended

Some roles require registration. Effective 10 October 2022, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has extended the eligibility requirements for roles requiring registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. It will include people with a special purpose temporary scope of practice registration. This is mainly related to roles in the Health & Social Services sector.

IT roles added to the Green List

Four IT roles have been added to Tier 1 of the Green List:

  • Analyst Programmer (ANZSCO code 261311)
  • Developer Programmer (ANZSCO code 261312)
  • Software Tester (ANZSCO code 261314)
  • Software and Applications Programmers nec (ANZSCO code 261399)

Determining if an applicant is suitably qualified to do the job

Effective 10 October 2022, INZ has amended immigration instructions about determining whether an applicant is suitably qualified to do the job offered.

Immigration Instructions will now allow applicants who have been offered Green List roles to be suitably qualified if they either meet the employer-specified requirements at the Job Check stage or the current requirements on the Green List for their role. This will ensure favourable outcomes for applicants if Green List role requirements are amended in between i.e when a job check is approved and an AEWV application is submitted.

Clarification regarding Food Technologists

Effective 14 November 2022, INZ has clarified that the qualification requirements for ‘Food Technologist’ in Tier 1 of the Green List refers to a Bachelor’s Degree – Level 7.
