Visa to Work

Getting a Work Visa in New Zealand

Immigration New Zealand offers many types of visas that will allow you to work in New Zealand. However, before you apply, decide which visa is right for you. Each visa has different criteria and different application processes. Broadly, they are divided into two categories i.e. temporary and permanent.

You can apply for a visa to work in New Zealand temporarily if you meet the relevant immigration instructions related to a job offer, specific work-related purpose or event, country-specific special work scheme, post-study Work Visa or if you have a supporting partner.
