Updates to New Zealand’s Talent Work Visa

The New Zealand government has announced significant changes to the Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa. As of the Monday 7th October 2019, the minimum salary needed to apply for a Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa has increased from NZ$55,000 to NZ$79,560. Applicants with salaries under NZ$79,560 must now apply for the Essential Skills Work Visa.

Current Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa holders who earn more than $90,000 a year can apply for the Talent (Accredited Employer) resident Visa and obtain a Permanent Residence Visa.

The Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa offers a migration pathway for those with a skillset that is in demand with one of the 1,000 plus accredited employers in New Zealand. To be eligible you must be 55 years old or under, and after 24 months’ in the job you may seek Residence from work. This visa is usually processed faster than other work visas, because your employer has ‘passed’ many Immigration requirements to become accredited.
