Further NZ Immigration Updates Including Processing During Covid Restrictions

As Immigration New Zealand releases further information regarding processing during Covid restrictions and varying Alert Levels around the country, we will keep you informed. Here are the latest updates:

Applying for a Variation of Conditions of a work visa is now online

The new form to apply for a Variation of Conditions (VOC) of a work visa is now online.

A new application can now be submitted online, for VOC paper applications that were sent before the Alert Level 4 nationwide lockdown that has not been acknowledged with an email, and those sent after.

Extension of Resident Visas set to expire before 10 Sept 2022

The Minister of Immigration has extended to September 11 2022 the travel conditions of resident visas set to expire between 25 August 2021 and 10 September 2022.

Resident visa holders overseas must be eligible for an exemption from border restrictions before they can travel to New Zealand.

Visa conditions flexibility benefits supermarket workers

To help provide essential services in supermarkets while New Zealand remains at Alert Level 3 or 4, already employed temporary migrants in supermarkets can:

  •  vary hours
  • be redeployed to other roles within their current workplaces
  • be redeployed to workplaces within same region.

These changes apply to employees of Woolworths New Zealand Limited, Foodstuffs North Island Limited and Foodstuffs South Island Limited supermarkets that are operating as essential services during alert levels 3 and 4.

An application for a variation of visa conditions is not needed – eligible workers will automatically benefit from these changes.
