Presented by Katy Goodwin and Rachel Robinson, Immigration NZ

Join us for an update and explanation from Immigration NZ regarding the new short term changes for temporary work visa holders in New Zealand.

There are three key changes:

  1. The first change is to extend all existing employer-assisted temporary work visas for people who are in New Zealand and whose visas are due to expire before the end of 2020 by 6 months.
  2. To align with the six month extension for temporary work visa holders in New Zealand, the second change is to delay the introduction of the 12 month stand-down period for lower-paid workers who have had their employer-assisted work visa extended
  3. Finally, the third change, which will be less welcomed by members, will reduce the duration of all new low-skilled Essential Skills work visas from 12 months to six months

Katy Goodwin and Rachel Robinson will be explaining these changes in more detail to ensure we have a clearer understanding of these policy changes and what this may mean for hospitality businesses.
