W1 Objective

  1. The objective of work visa instructions is to contribute to developing New Zealand's human capability base.
  2. Work visa instructions seek to achieve this by:
    1. facilitating the access of New Zealand employers and New Zealand industry to global skills and knowledge; while
    2. complementing the Government's education, training, employment and economic development policies; and
    3. ensuring that the employment in New Zealand of non-New Zealand citizens and residence class visa holders does not undermine the wages and conditions of New Zealand workers.

Effective 29/11/2010
