Your igovt logon is changing, but your username and password will stay the same. From 1 July, the igovt logon service will be part of the RealMe service. To make this change, the igovt logon service won’t be available from 10pm on Friday 28 June until the evening of Sunday 30 June. This means you won’t be able to access VisaView, so please ensure you check any details you require before that date.
Your current logon will still work, it will just look different. The RealMe service will be as secure as the igovt logon service and it will continue to protect your privacy. RealMe® will enable you to do lots of useful things online that would normally require you to turn up in person. You’ll also be able to use your logon in more places. More information about what the RealMe service will offer is available at www.realme.govt.nz.

VisaView allows New Zealand employers to check whether a person who is not a New Zealand citizen can work in New Zealand for that employer.
It also enables registered employers to confirm New Zealand passport information provided by the jobseeker, and therefore confirm New Zealand citizenship and entitlement to work in any job.
When you register for VisaView, we will ask you for your business name and ACC number (as shown on your ACC invoice).
If your employer is already registered, you will need an email invitation from the administrator of your employer account before you can make online enquiries for that employer.
To use VisaView you will need to log on using the igovt logon service. This lets you use the same logon to access securely several different government online services. This saves you from having to remember multiple logon details for different government websites. Follow the links on the right to the igovt website to create your igovt logon and to log on to VisaView.
