Relief for veterinarians as profession makes Government's new Green List

The inclusion of veterinarians on a new Government Green List is welcome relief for the country’s vets, according to Kevin Bryant, Chief Executive of the New Zealand Veterinary Association (NZVA). Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced the Green List will provide a streamlined and prioritised pathway to residency, incentivising highly skilled workers to relocate to New Zealand long term.

Accredited Employer Work Visa

The Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) is a new, temporary work visa. New Zealand employers wanting to hire migrant workers may be able to do so under the new scheme from 4 July. Employers will need to apply for AEWV accreditation, even if they have been accredited under other systems, and must pay a fee to receive it.
