Prioritisation of Green List AEWV Applications by Immigration New Zealand

Green List AEWV applications

Introduction to Green List AEWV Applications

Immigration New Zealand has announced a new policy to prioritise Job Check and Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) applications for occupations listed on the Green List. This decision is intended to expedite the filling of essential skill gaps in the labour market.

 

Green List Overview

The Green List includes occupations that are critical for New Zealand’s economic growth and development. These roles are already given priority for skilled residence applications, and now, they will also receive prioritisation for AEWV applications. This measure aims to address the urgent need for skilled workers in key industries. For more details on the roles included, refer to the Roles on the Green List.

 

Prioritisation of Green List AEWV Applications

The prioritisation of Green List AEWV applications is designed to fast-track the process for employers seeking to fill critical positions. Immigration New Zealand believes that by focusing on these essential roles, the country can more effectively manage its labour shortages.

 

Impact on AEWV Processing Times

Despite the prioritisation of Green List AEWV applications, Immigration New Zealand does not expect this to affect the processing times for other AEWV applications. Employers and applicants are still encouraged to allow at least six weeks for each stage of the AEWV application process.

 

Benefits of Green List AEWV Applications for Employers

This prioritisation benefits employers by providing quicker access to skilled workers necessary for their operations. By reducing the time needed to fill these vital roles, businesses can sustain productivity and growth, minimising disruptions caused by labour shortages.
