New Zealand High Commission Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

Working in New Zealand

If you want to work in New Zealand you must apply in advance for a Work Visa. The Working in New Zealand section of the New Zealand Immigration website contains comprehensive information about the options available including:

Recognised Seasonal Employer scheme (RSE)

Papua New Guineans are eligible to participate in New Zealand’s Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme. For more information about the RSE scheme visit the New Zealand Immigration website.

In order to obtain a visa under the RSE scheme the applicant must have a job offer from an employer in New Zealand who is approved by Immigration New Zealand amongst other things.

The New Zealand High Commission wishes to advise the public that at this stage there are no accredited RSE employers in New Zealand that are currently seeking to recruit from Papua New Guinea or have indicated that they intend to do so.

If there are “agents” receiving money as fees from Papua New Guineans for the purpose of going to New Zealand under this scheme that agent is acting illegally.

For more information please contact the New Zealand High Commission, Visa Section on +675 325 9444.
