Student hiring rules

Rules and restrictions you need to know about.

Thinking of hiring international students?

Not all international students are allowed to work while studying.

If an international student may work, this will be clearly stated in their eVisa approval letter from Immigration New Zealand (or in the visa label in their passport) confirming that their visa has conditions that allow them to work. You can check our VisaView tool to confirm their visa allows them to work for you.
