Finding out about visa in immigration requirements

New Zealand immigration law requires that anyone providing advice on immigration to New Zealand must be licensed for that purpose. As a result, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise cannot give advice on immigration matters.

To find out more about requirements to work or live in New Zealand, please contact Immigration New Zealand.

You can find a searchable list of immigration advisers on the website of the Immigration Advisors Authority

Finding work in New Zealand

NZTE does not match individuals to opportunities with New Zealand businesses.

If you're considering emigrating to New Zealand for work, the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce, in association with New Zealand Immigration, administer a website called New Kiwis, which helps connect skilled migrants with New Zealand companies. This service is free to international job seekers. You can register online.

If you're currently based in New Zealand, you can find most vacancies on online careers sites.

If you are interested in working with companies focused on a particular overseas market or a particular industry, contacting business councils or business chambers, or local industry associations is a useful way to locate contacts and find opportunities.
