WJ6.1 Further work visas (29/11/2010)
- Crew members may be granted further visas allowing a stay for a maximum of 24 months from the date of first entering New Zealand, without having to provide further evidence.
- If further visas allowing a stay for a period longer than 24 months are needed, employers must apply for approval in principle again and meet the same requirements set out in these instructions, to show that there are still no qualified and experienced New Zealand citizens or residence class visa holders available to do the work.
Note: Such applications may be made while the crew members in question are still in New Zealand
