VisaView launched to help employers check job applicants have New Zealand Visa

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

Immigration New Zealand has launched an online system to help employers check if job applicants are entitled to work in New Zealand.

New Zealand Visa

VisaView will enable employers to check potential employees have a New Zealand Visa and the right to work in the country.

The New Zealand Visa checking system is called VisaView, and employers must register before they will be able to check a prospective employee’s entitlement to work.

Employers can check job applicants’ entitlement simply by providing information such as a passport number and the last name of the applicant.  VisaView will check against the Department of Labour’s database and in most cases provide the employer with a "Yes" or "No" answer, together with any specific work conditions that may apply.

VisaView is free to use and will provide a real-time response in the majority of cases.

VisaView also maintains a history of enquiries you have made, which will be a useful way for employers to demonstrate due diligence in relation to compliance with requirements of the Immigration Act 2009, which comes into effect on 29 November 2010.

More information about employer obligations under the Immigration Act 2009 can be found here.

The New Zealand Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with their New Zealand immigration applications to the New Zealand High Commission
