The New Zealand Recovery Visa

Cyclone Gabrielle ravage the North Island of New Zealand and also hit some parts of Australia and Vanuatu earlier this year in February.

The cyclone caused a lot of damage at an estimated cost of about 13.5 billion New Zealand dollars. A lot of businesses, companies and lives were affected by Cyclone Gabrielle. In a bid to combat and deal with the effects and also help businesses and people try to find their feet after the cyclone, the government of New Zealand has created a new visa called the Recovery Visa that is aimed at getting necessary manpower into New Zealand.

According to the immigration of New Zealand, the Recovery Visa is a specific purpose work visa that was created for workers who want to migrate to assist with the recovery process and effects of Cyclone Gabrielle.

How To Apply For The Recovery Visa 

  •  It is on the employer to source for the migrant worker who fits the role 
  • The next step is for the employer to provide the migrant worker with the downloaded Recovery Visa Employer Supplementary Form (INZ 1377)
  • The migrant worker applies for a visa and while applying online;

 Select the specific purpose of events as the type of work these are they are applying for

Select 6 months or less as the length of stay in New Zealand and after which they can now upload the employer supplementary form INZ 1377 as the evidence that is required.

Fee For The Recovery Visa

The Recovery Visa will cost $700 but it will be refunded for applicants that have successful applications.

Duration Of The Recovery Visa 

The length of the Recovery Visa is 6 months but migrant workers who want to stay longer in New Zealand will need to apply for a different type of work visa as the Recovery Visa duration cannot be extended.

Roles Needed To Be Filled By The Recovery Visa

The main purpose of the visa is for migrant workers to be able to come to majorly the North Island in New Zealand to help with the recovery process from the effects of Cyclone Gabrielle, although the visa also allows migrant workers to work in other parts of New Zealand, not just the North Island.

Some Of The Support Roles Include

Assessing risk and loss 

 Providing emergency response 

 Jobs that directly aid in the recovery such as transport drivers, builders and people who produce relevant materials for the rebuilding of roads.

Roles that help with how stabilization and or repair, building and also planning functions.

Things To Note 

  • The main purpose of the recovery visa as stated earlier is to aid with the recovery of cyclone Gabrielle and help the businesses and communities affected by the cyclone to get back on their feet and so the employers need to ensure that the roles will be serving that purpose and will need to do this by completing the recovery visa employer supplementary form (INZ 1377) and also the migrant worker will need to include this completed form with the application submission.
  •  In order not to defeat the main purpose of the recovery visa, the visa is not available to industries that are not providing direct support to the recovery process. 
  • For businesses that have to deal with an increased demand for their services or want to fill vacancies that opened up due to people going to work on the recovery will be able to get people to work for them through the Accredited Employer Work Visa(AEWV) and other work visas for New Zealand. The New Zealand government has made known that changes are being considered for the AEWV processing for roles that are identified as roles that will be needed to support the rebuilding of communities in New Zealand and because of this will be exempted from the labour market test.

Although the duration for this visa is only 6 months, it can be your first step in the door to be able to Japa from Nigeria and it could also be a 6-month adventure that you embark on if you have the necessary skills and experience needed to apply for Recovery Visa. Travelling is so much more than relocating or getting an education. I believe that sometimes travelling should be about the experience that you can get from it, it should be about the adventure that you can enjoy from it, meeting new people and in this case helping and aiding a community recover after a tragedy.

There is so much to life that can be experienced and if you’ve been looking for a 6 months hiatus to embark upon, maybe New Zealand is one of the places to consider, you never can tell how the entire experience will change your life for good, change your perspective open you up to a different side of life and also teach you one or two things. If after all of this, you choose to stay in New Zealand, you also get a chance to apply for a new work visa and from there you could work your way up to more. 

Will you be applying for the New Zealand Recovery Visa? What would you be looking to learn and gain from the experience?
