Employer Accreditation

Attention Employers! Let’s Talk About Employer Accreditation Thinking about hiring from overseas? Here’s what you need to know: Employer Accreditation: Before you can bring in talent from abroad on an Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV), your business must be accredited with Immigration New Zealand (INZ). Job Check: Once accredited, you’ll need to seek permission from INZ to employ a migrant worker. This involves advertising the position. AEWV Application: After completing the first two steps, your prospective employee can apply for an AEWV work visa, which could be valid for up to 5 years! Step 1 – Employer Accreditation: To become accredited, your business must meet certain criteria such as financial stability or having a solid business plan in place. The employer must: i. have not made a loss (before depreciation and tax) over the last 24 months; or ii. have a positive cash flow for each of the last 6 months; or iii. have sufficient capital and/or external investment to ensure the employer’s business remains viable and ongoing; or iv. have a credible, minimum two-year plan (for example by having contracts for work) to ensure the employer’s business remains viable and ongoing. This plan should be prepared by a chartered accountant. Please note that employers are required to meet one of these above-mentioned criteria Settlement Support Activities: Once hired, you’re committed to providing essential information about life in New Zealand to your AEWV holders. Compliance with Standards: Remember, you can’t pass on certain costs to your visa holders, such as recruitment fees or training costs. Accreditation Process: The application is online, with a current fee of $740. Processing takes approximately four weeks. Ready to expand your team globally?

New Zealand Visa Categories

  NZ visa system has 3 categories,  Residence, Temporary Entry and Transit class visas. Residence class has two sub-classes: Resident Visa and Permanent Resident Visa, both visas have indefinite expiry dates. The major difference between a residence visa and a permanent residence visa is the travel conditions. A resident visa comes with any conditions imposed under section 49 of the Immigration Act and two-year travel conditions. If a resident visa holder is out of NZ with expired travel conditions, they may not return to NZ unless they get travel conditions extended. On the other hand, a permanent resident visa allows visa holders to travel in and out of NZ anytime without any travel restrictions. Transit visas allow travellers to transit through NZ. Temporary entry class visa has three sub-classes. The main sub-class temporary visa includes student, work, visitor, special visa, and military visa. Difference between Temporary Class Visa and Residence Class Visa There are many significant differences between temporary entry-class visas and residence-class visas. Some of the key differences are: Cost: Temporary class visas cost less, compared to residence class visas. However, as temporary visas require renewal, it is not a cost-effective option. Duration: Temporary class visas allow a visa holder to stay in NZ for a relatively short period. i.e., a work visa may be valid for 1 year. Residence class visas are valid for a lifetime, providing stability in life. Processing Time: Temporary class visas can be processed within a few days; however, residence class visas have a long processing time (processed in months). Social Benefits: Temporary class visa holders have fewer social benefits, compared to residence class visa holders. Residence class visa holders have the right to vote and can be eligible for pension as well. Children of some temporary visa holders may be eligible to attend school as domestic students. Visa Conditions: Temporary class visas often have conditions such as duration of stay, employment conditions, short-term study etc, whereas residence class visas usually have fewer conditions for the visa holders. Health Care: Generally, temporary class visa holders are not entitled to public health services and will need health insurance. However, some temporary class visa holders such as work visa holders may be entitled to subsidised public healthcare. On the other hand, residence-class visa holders are entitled to fully funded public healthcare.

Why use a Licensed Immigration Adviser (LIA)?

Using a Licensed Immigration Adviser (LIA) offers several advantages when navigating the complex process of immigration. Here are some key reasons why individuals may choose to engage the services of a LIA: Knowledge of Application Requirements: LIAs know the ins and outs of immigration laws and can guide applicants on meeting necessary application requirements. They have a deep understanding of the requirements for different visa categories and can guide applicants on the necessary steps to ensure their application meets the compulsory visa lodgement requirements. Understanding of Documentation: LIAs possess the expertise to identify the specific supporting documentation required for each visa application. This is crucial for demonstrating that the applicant meets the relevant visa requirements. Submitting the right documents in the correct format can significantly enhance the chances of a successful application. Insight into Decision-Making Factors: Immigration decisions are influenced by various factors, including the Immigration Act and policies, the immigration instructions relating to the visa category, applicant’s personal circumstances, the principles of fairness and natural justice, and bona fides. LIAs are familiar with the factors that can impact the decision-making process and can provide valuable advice on how to present the application to address these factors. Expertise in Handling Discretionary Elements: Some aspects of a visa decisions involve an element of discretion (especially in temporary entry class visa applications). LIAs can use their experience to navigate these discretionary elements and present the application in a way that maximizes the chances of a visa approval. Preliminary Assessments: LIAs often conduct preliminary assessments to evaluate the eligibility of an applicant before proceeding with the formal visa application lodgement. This helps in identifying potential issues early on and allows for adjustments to be made to strengthen the application to ensure a positive result. Professional Presentation: LIAs ensure that visa applications are professionally presented with a cover letter, meeting all the necessary requirements. A well-prepared application can contribute to a positive impression on visa officers and increase the likelihood of a visa approval. Reconsideration Rights Assistance: In the event of a visa application being declined, LIAs can assist in understanding the available reconsideration rights. They can guide applicants through the process of addressing any concerns raised by immigration officers. In case of a declined application, reconsideration rights may be available to some applicants, depending on factors like being onshore or offshore and applying for a residence or temporary class visa. Time and Cost Savings: For temporary entry visas (e.g., visitor, work, student visas) for offshore applicants, reconsideration rights may not apply. LIAs ensure that applications are professionally presented, meeting all requirements, and increasing the likelihood of visa approvals. This not only saves time but also money for the applicant. Engaging an LIA can potentially save applicants time and money by avoiding common pitfalls and mistakes that could lead to delays or rejections. LIAs streamline the application process and increase the efficiency of the overall immigration journey. To sum up, a Licensed Immigration Adviser brings specialized knowledge, experience, and a structured approach to the immigration process, ultimately increasing the chances of a successful visa application.

After secondary school, students who want to continue their study at a tertiary level can choose from a number of education options ranging from universities to polytechnics, private training establishments, industry training organisations and more. Students may need to finish secondary school to study at this level. Whichever level you decide to choose, New Zealand can give you a high-quality education that will enable you to achieve your goals.
