EMPLOYERS may register with the VisaView service provided by New Zealand Immigration. This is a verification service that allows you to check visa conditions, date of expiry and that a visa is valid for current and potential employees. Using this service is accepted as evidence that you have complied with the immigration act, and that those checked have the right to work in New Zealand as per the conditions. Note though that the check does not confirm identity.
In addition to performing checks on those from other countries, you may also verify New Zealand passports using the service. This gives the provision the employee is a citizen and is therefore entitled to work in the country.
The VisaView service requires employers to register for access. This is done using a RealMe account. You will then need to register as an employer and complete all details. Once registered you may provide additional users access for administration purposes. You may also register for access to the New Zealand Passport Confirmation service. Once this is complete you will be able to check visa conditions.
