What is VisaView?

On 2 August 2010, Immigration NZ launched VisaView, an online system to help employers check if job applicants are entitled to work in New Zealand. This service is in relation to the requirements of the Immigration Act 2009, which came into effect on 29 November 2010.  

Employers will be required to register to use the system, and will then be able to check a prospective employee’s entitlement to work simply by providing information such as a passport number and the last name of the applicant.  

VisaView will check against Immigration's database and in most cases provide the employer with a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer, together with any specific work conditions that may apply.  

Information and resources on VisaView can be found on our website.
