What do I need to do to recruit a foreign national?

If you are looking to recruit a foreign national, you will need to assess the potential employee's eligibility for the visa they need.

You may need to show genuine attempts to recruit locally. This is the area where most work visa applications run into problems.  We can assist a worker to prepare and lodge work visa applications. If you need to recruit high-level skills, you might want to consider making an application to Immigration New Zealand for your business to gain accreditation status, or obtain an approval in principal to recruit people from offshore.
