New Zealand’s accredited employer work visa (AEWV) will undergo significant changes, which in combination with the new 6 Point Residence Visa system, will have impacts that are far-reaching for both employers and migrants.
In June 2023, the New Zealand Government announced the details of their highly anticipated new Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) visa.
The government overhauled its Migrant Investor Visa category this year in a bid to attract more wealthy migrants to New Zealand.
The Government announced two major changes to the immigration system on the 13th of October, the parent visa category was reopened, and the skilled migrant visa category which is known as the points system. Both have been on hold because of Covid.
Skilled Migrant Visa reopens: New 6 points details to be announced
The minister for immigration Michael Woods has just announced that the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) visa would reopen under current settings while consultation was under way and the new 6 point system was set up.
