The Care Workforce Work to Residence Visa in New Zealand is a specialized immigration category aimed at addressing the country’s growing need for skilled workers in the healthcare and aged care sectors. This visa provides a pathway for eligible individuals to initially work in New Zealand’s care workforce and eventually transition to permanent residency.
1. Job Offer: Applicants must have a genuine job offer from a New Zealand employer in the healthcare or aged care industry. The job offer must be for a skilled occupation that aligns with the country’s healthcare and aged care needs. The employment must either be permanent full-time, or fixed-term for at least 12 months.
2. Qualifications and Experience: Applicants must have worked in a care workforce role for 24 months. They must also have been paid at least the level 4 support workers’ minimum wage.
1. Temporary Work Visa: Initially, successful applicants are granted a temporary work visa that allows them to work in New Zealand in the healthcare or aged care sector. This visa is typically valid for 30 months.
2. Residence Visa Application: After working in New Zealand for 24 months and meeting specific criteria, applicants can submit an application for a residence visa. This application includes documentation to demonstrate that they have fulfilled the work and employment conditions outlined in their initial job offer.
