Information for employers

What to do when your employee needs immigration advice.

If you are an employer you cannot give immigration advice to customers or colleagues without a licence.

Immigration advice can only be given by licensed professionals or those exempt from holding a licence under the Immigration Advisers Licensing Act.

Being an accredited employer with Immigration New Zealand does not mean that you can provide ‘immigration advice’ without a licence.

Who needs to be licensed has more about the dos and don’ts of helping migrants.
