Immigration New Zealand have changed what an employer is required to provide with a low skilled (ANZSCO skill level 4-5 or anyone earning less than $21.68 hourly) essential skills work visa application.

  • Contact MSD via email about listing the role.

The advertising outcome report and MSD email correspondence then both need to be uploaded to the low skilled essential skills work visa application.
