Specific Purpose or Event Visa

You can apply for this visa if you need to come to New Zealand for a specific purpose or event. You will need to have skills related to your specific purpose or event and be able to define the time you will need to complete your specific purpose or event.

Some of the examples of people who may be able to apply for this visa include business people on secondments, sports players, professional coaches, specialist installers or services, and Philippines nurses seeking occupational registration.

This visa allows you to work only in the specific occupation, for the employer and in the location specified on your visa.

The Purpose Work Visa is a multiple entry visa whose duration depends on how long you need to be in New Zealand to complete your specific purpose or event. If you need more time to complete your specific purpose or event, you may be able to apply for another Specific Purpose or Event Work Visa.

Business people wanting to start a company in New Zealand can apply for this visa. However, a strong business case must be presented to Immigration New Zealand to demonstrate your business plans.

You can’t include your partner or dependent children in your visa application, but they can apply for visas based on their relationship to you.
