Major Immigration Changes – Keeping your Employees “In the Loop”

As covered in our recent seminar series, significant changes to New Zealand’s immigration system are proposed to come in this year.

To ensure that your business managers and your employees are aware of these upcoming developments, we have prepared an information flyer that you may wish to distribute, so as to make sure that your migrant workforce holding temporary work visas are aware that there are some changes on the way that may impact them, and their family.

Information flyer: Major Changes to Employer-Sponsored Work Visas for 2019 (pdf 216kb)

If you or your employees have any questions about these proposed changes, or would like assistance to formulate submissions on the consultation process that is still open until 18 March, please contact us.
