NEW ZEALAND – Waived Labour Market Testing in Some Instances of Visa Renewal

New Zealand authorities have determined that they will waive labour market testing requirements for companies who are employing foreign nationals that meet the following requirements:

  • The foreign national is renewing his/her temporary work visa under the Essential Skills policy, and
  • The foreign national has a valid invitation for a residency application.

It is important to note that work visa renewals applied for under this exemption will only be valid for 12 months.
