Strengthened protections and improved processes for partners of migrant workers

March 03, 2023 at 2:50 PM

Notice from Immigration New Zealand – https://www.immigration.govt.nz/

The Minister of Immigration announced changes to the eligibility of Victims of Family Violence work visas which came into effect from 28 February 2023, and changes to partners of temporary work visa holders which will come into effect from 31 May 2023.

Changes to the eligibility of Victims of Family Violence work visas

Access to the Victims of Family Violence work visa will be expanded to include people who are on partner-based visas that are linked to temporary migrants.

The Victims of Family Violence work visa allows eligible applicants a six-month open work visa where there is a family violence situation, and this visa will be granted independently, and won’t depend on their partnership.

These changes will be in effect from 28 February 2023.
