Work visa

With a number of pathways available to live and work in New Zealand, we will help you select the right one. It can be very confusing when trying to find the right visa for your circumstances and that is why you need an experienced migration agent.

We have summarised the options available but please make sure you get in contact and find out who we can help with your pathway.

The main work visas are:

Essential Skills Visa


If you have been offered a full-time job, and you have the necessary qualifications and experience to work in that job, you can apply for a temporary visa to work in New Zealand. Unless you are staying with the same employer and in the same role and region, your employer must have checked if any New Zealanders were available to do the work, before offering you the job. If you are granted this visa, you may be able to support visa applications for your partner and dependent children.

Work to Residence Visa


There are three key visas within this

category of visa:

  • Long Term Skill Shortage List – Resident Visa
  • Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa
  • Talent (Accredited Employer) Resident Visa
