Information about Employees of Relocating Business Resident Visa

You can apply for this visa if you’re a key employee of a business that’s relocating to New Zealand, and you’re not eligible to apply for any other kind of New Zealand resident visa. If we approve your application in principle, we’ll grant you a work visa to relocate the business. If you meet the conditions of your work visa, you may be able to live, work and study in New Zealand indefinitely.

Overview

If you meet the visa conditions, indefinitely


All conditions

You can

  • Work in the business you’re relocating with.
  • Bring your partner and dependent with you.
  • Live, work and study in New Zealand indefinitely, after you meet the conditions of your visa.

Things to note

  • We may grant you a work visa to allow you to relocate the business, before we grant you a resident visa.
  • If you include a partner and dependent children in your application, we may grant them visitor or student visas while you relocate the business.
