New Border Exception For Teachers To Enter New Zealand

New Border Exception For Teachers

New Zealand’s Education Minister Chris Hipkins has announced a new border exception that will allow 300 overseas qualified teachers to come to New Zealand.

This will not only support Early Childhood Education (ECE) services and schools with the 2022 recruitment, but also complement existing teacher supply initiatives.

The Ministry of Education will invite applications for teachers from September 2021.

Education Minister has also stated that

  • Teachers who were already employed in NZ but left the country and were unable to return to their job due to border closure will be eligible for the border exception.
  • A separate family reunification border exceptionis being created for the partners and dependent children of teachers who are already in New Zealand on temporary visas.

They will be able to request to bring in their partners and dependent children for the duration of their visa.

If you want to know more about the new border exception for teachers or you have any questions about your eligibility or want any assistance with your immigration needs. Please contact Immigration Advisers New Zealand Ltd at [email protected] or call on +64 09 3790219
