The new 5 year visa is coming soon

Accredited Employer Work Visa changes

The Government is introducing a maximum continuous stay of 5 years on an AEWV, for anyone who is unable to demonstrate that they are on a pathway to residence. People will need to spend 12 months outside of NZ to be eligible to apply for a further AEWV.

From November 2023, the maximum duration of an AEWV will be extended from 3 years to 5 years to align with the introduction of the 5-year maximum continuous stay for AEWV holders.

This applies if you are on a low skill visa, essentially a Skill level 4 or 5, which means that you may not qualify for a point based residency or other options. unless you are on a role with 1 and a half times the median wages
