Work Visas

Is the WORK VISA for me?

If you are considering a move to New Zealand, is getting a job there something to consider? Is working in New Zealand something you would like to do?

Working in New Zealand is usually seen as being laid back and casual. The converse, however, is also true. Most Kiwis are really about committing to a job and finding solutions. They also have a culture of combining traditional methods with new ideas.

Working in New Zealand means you will be expected to show independence in your work attitude and also the ability to collaborate with a team.

If you do plan on working in New Zealand, your first task would be to find a job before you move. Usually you will require a job offer in order to obtain a work visa. Our team at IANZL are well equipped to assist and advise you in this regard.

We can help you with a step-by-step process that will range from advising you on the best search tools and websites to search for a job, to applying for and obtaining your Work Visa. Our team of advisors will also help evaluate your qualifications and skills and help you identify career opportunities to best suit you and your work experience.

Depending on your nationality and immigration rules applicable to you, we can advise you on what kind of work visa you will require, and whether it is possible to get the visa first. If, however, you want to begin working as soon as you move, then it is important to have a visa in hand, as you will not be able to work without one.
