Visa Immigration Information

New Zealand law requires anyone who is working in New Zealand to hold a current valid visa and work permit that allows them to take up and remain in that position of work.

As the process to apply can be lengthy it is recommended that staff who have accepted a letter of offer with the University apply for a visa as soon as possible.

Massey University is an accredited employer for immigration purposes. This means that appointed staff are eligible to apply for a talent visa and work permit . A talent visa also enables the applicant to work toward permanent residency and can fast track the visa application process.

The talent visa is just one option, there are a number of different options available that offer different benefits and may be more suitable depending on individual circumstances. Full details of the different types of visas available, their cost and processing times can be view at the NZ Immigration website.

Should staff require further individual assistance with immigration please contact Massey's referred suppler Crown Relocations. A free on-chat service is available during normal office hours, New Zealand time. More personalised service is available, at a cost to either the staff member or their employing department.
