Partly is facilitating work visas for successful software engineers, data scientists, and analyst applicants through the Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV).

Kiwi Ingenuity

New Zealand has a phrase to represent a mentality we’re proud of - “Number 8 Wire”.

We're a nation of tinkerers, innovators, and problem-solvers ready to roll up our sleeves and improvise solutions from whatever materials are at hand. This culture of resourcefulness has sparked world-changing inventions like the electric fence and shipping container, and fueled the rise of tech companies like Rocket Lab and Xero.

Partly was founded and cultivated in this environment. That's why we've planted our engineering hub in Christchurch. Here we've brought together a world-class team that embodies New Zealand's knack for turning constraints into opportunities through smart, resourceful solutions. As Partly expands, we seek to bring more top talent into this uniquely innovative culture - people who’ll thrive on solving seemingly insurmountable challenges while enjoying New Zealand’s amazing lifestyle.

What is the Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV)?

The AEWV is a New Zealand work visa that allows employers accredited by Immigration New Zealand to hire highly skilled workers from overseas. This visa streamlines the process for skilled workers to obtain employment in New Zealand.

What are the requirements for the AEWV?

To be eligible for the AEWV, applicants must have a job offer from an accredited employer, meet the required skill level and qualifications, and meet character and health requirements set by Immigration New Zealand.

How long does the visa process take?

The visa processing time can vary depending on individual circumstances, but Partly will guide you through the entire process to ensure a smooth and efficient experience.

Partly's dedicated team will assist you with every step of the visa application process, including documentation, submissions, and communication with Immigration New Zealand. We also cover your relocation costs.

"I fell in love with New Zealand on a holiday a few years ago, and knew I wanted to return to work here. Navigating NZ’s immigration process was initially daunting, but Partly made it seamless."
