Fast-track New Zealand Visas for overseas workers in the construction sector is being considered by the government. The construction firms will be offered a streamlined process for hiring overseas workers. This is if they find that the no workers in New Zealand are available for the positions.
Diverse changes have been proposed to facilitate the immigration of skilled workers to New Zealand. This includes a Skills Shortage list for Kiwi Build. It will offer a simple process for employers for the quick hiring of overseas workers in critical roles. There will also be no need for Immigration NZ to hold a market test each time, as quoted by the Stuff Co NZ.
New Zealand Visas will be fast-tracked for firms that cater to the standards of being good employers. They will obtain pre-approval for hiring overseas workers. A short-term resolution is critically required for catering to the shortage of skills in the construction sector.
The new Skills Shortage List is expected as early as December 2018. One of the key industries for delivery of the priorities of the government is the construction sector. It does not have the required numbers of the workforce needed for the build scale and speed.
Iain Lees-Galloway the Immigration Minister said that the scarcity of skilled workers is delaying the rapid advancement needed by the government. These are required for building homes, transport pathways, and other infrastructure.
The Labor government had assured 100,000 fresh homes in one decade. Its first deadline is by 1 July 2019 with 1000 homes. It is inclusive of the plan by the government for building 100,000 affordable homes. This also includes 28 billion $ transport infrastructure for Auckland.
