Immigration new Zealand New Post Study Work Visa settings

New Post Study Work Visa settings
New requirements for New Zealand’s Post Study Work Visa come into effect from today (7 September).

These changes may be of interest to your communities and networks so please share this information widely.

The changes apply to anyone who had applied for a student visa after 11 May 2022. Previously, people holding a Post Study Work Visa were able to work in any role, for any employer, anywhere in New Zealand.

Under the new settings, their visa conditions depend on the qualification they have gained in New Zealand.

An applicant may be granted only one Post Study Work Visa, and they will need to show they have NZD $5,000 of available funds.

The main requirements of the Post Study Work Visa are noted below, and more information is also available on the Immigration New Zealand (INZ) website.
