Accreditation for labour hire companies

At the moment it is compulsory for labour hire companies in Canterbury, but not other parts of New Zealand, to hold labour hire accreditation. The government is currently considering a proposal to make it compulsory for all employers throughout New Zealand to be accredited. As part of that proposal, the Immigration Minister recently indicated that he was considering a nation-wide labour hire accreditation scheme.

Do it yourself – NZeTA

From 1 October 2019 , you will not be allowed to travel to New Zealand if you do not have a visa or NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority). You can apply for a NZeTA online yourself through the Immigration New Zealand website for $12. Alternatively, you can apply from the NZeTA app for $9. Don’t get caught out and pay a hefty fee to get someone else to do this on your behalf.
