Border Update

New Zealand borders are opening in 2022 and some exemptions are already being allowed for critical workers.

We are accepting applications for critical workers, and for all other roles advertised (as there may always be a chance that we can grant an exemption and most employers we work with have started interviewing in anticipation of borders opening).

In order to move to New Zealand, you must have a job offer. We specialise in helping overseas applicants navigate their way to New Zealand. Please apply and we will be in contact to see what your personal circumstances are.

We look forward to hearing from you.
