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.
