Immigration changes looming
On immigration, the Act-National agreement commits to increase the cap on the number of seasonal workers, as well as introducing a “five-year, renewable parent category visa, conditional on covering healthcare costs, with consideration of a public healthcare levy”.

Employers will no longer be required to pay those on skilled migrant category visas the median wage.

It will also be easier for family members of visa holders to work in New Zealand, beginning with Skilled Migrant Category visa holders.
