Entertainment Promoters Approval

We work with entertainment promoters to simplify the visa application process. Performers and direct support staff of short-term live entertainment acts promoted by an ‘approved promoter’ can enter New Zealand as visitors.


Valid for 4 years

With this option employers can

  • Employ overseas performers and immediate support staff to perform and work here on a visitor visa without having to apply for a work visa. They will still need to meet all the requirements of a visitor visa.

Things to note

  • You will need to provide evidence the promoter has been established for at least 3 years.
  • You will need to show that you have promoted international acts in New Zealand in the past 3 years.
  • You will need to have a history of compliance with immigration requirements.
