Today is 27 July 20202, the day that the new Temporary Work Visa’s come in to force.

However, we still don’t have know the changes to the Operating Manual. While we wait for the new Temporary Work Visa rules, we thought we’d do a video explaining what various Immigration New Zealand terms mean. Listed below are the terms we go through, and in the order we go through them, including the difference between a work visa and a residence visa, and just what is the operating manual.

The terms we cover are:
Temporary Entry Visa

Skilled Migrant Category Residence Visa
Police Certificate
Bona Fides
Section 61
Immigration Act
Operational Manual / Instructions
