Hospitality NZ welcomes visa extensions

13th October 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

Hospitality New Zealand has welcomed the government’s move to extend working holiday and supplementary seasonal employment work visas by six months to help fill labour shortages over summer.

Chief executive Julie White called it a “practical and sensible approach by the government” with the start of the high season just two months away.

Employing New Zealanders first remained a top priority for the industry, White said, but while the borders remained closed the onshore migrant workforce was needed to keep it going.
