NEW BORDER ENTRY EXCEPTION
From today, some workers stuck outside of the country will be able to come into the country.
Very broadly speaking, you must
Have held an employer-assisted or entrepreneur work visa when you left NZ
Have left NZ recently
Still be working in the role that got you the visa
Have lived in New Zealand long-term before you left the country
If you believe you are eligible, you can request permission to enter the border through the Immigration New Zealand website.
Note that partners and dependent children may be eligible to travel with you, if they hold a valid relationship-based visa now or held one at the time they left New Zealand, or if your child was born on or after 01/12/19.
