Recovery Visa has been introduced by the New Zealand government to accelerate the entry of overseas specialists who can help to recover the country from the current weather-related disasters. A Recovery Visa is a New Zealander visa to enable skilled workers to enter the country immediately and support the on-going tragedy in different ways like, direct recovery support, risk assessment, emergency response, infrastructure and housing stabilization and repair, and clean-up.
As per the immigration rule, the applicants will have to provide the following support:
The Recovery Visa will be free for successful applicants. The government plans to process applications within seven days, valid for up to six months.
Industries that provide indirect support (e.g., businesses in the affected areas facing increased demand for services) will not be able to apply. Also, the Visa will not be available to backfill vacancies of people leaving roles to work on the recovery.
