INZ adds more roles into the Residency Pathways

On Saturday last week, Immigration NZ announced the addition of 17 more roles into the Green List. I remember talking to a few clients and other about their pathways and options in the last few months, and how it would have hit a road block.


Among the changes included, are


  • adding 17 roles to the Green List

  • increasing the Recognised Seasonal Employer cap to 19,500 for 2023/24 season

  • closing the Recovery Visa to new applicants from 23 September 2023

  • existing holders of a Recovery Visa in New Zealand can apply for a 3-month extension

  • adding a small number of roles to the Construction and Infrastructure Sector Agreement

  • requiring a judicial warrant for out-of-hours compliance visits.

Roles added to the Green List

17 roles will be added to the Green List, following a scheduled and targeted review conducted by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

Roles being added to the Green List are:

  • Aviation Engineer (Avionics, Aeronautical, Aerospace Engineer)

  • Naval Architects (aka Marine Designer)

  • Mechanical Engineering Technician

  • ICT Database and System Administrator

The roles will be added to the Green List from March 2024. More information, including the specific requirements for each role and the specific residence pathway that will be available, will be available nearer the time.
