Employer accreditation

If you’re looking to employ migrants, the very first step is for your organisation to become accredited by New Zealand Immigration. Employer accreditation is initially valid for 12 months, and you’re then able to take the next steps in employing migrant workers. VisaAide can organise your employer accreditation for you. Read more about employer accreditation.

Job check

Once your company is accredited, you need to conduct a job check for every position you’re recruiting. The purpose of this is to prove that there are no suitably qualified New Zealanders available for the role. VisaAide can manage the job check process for you. Read more about job checks – including common mistakes to avoid.
