Queenstown Lakes District occupation exemption
If you're hiring someone from overseas for a vacancy in Queenstown, you may not need a Skills Match Report.
What you need to do
If your vacant position is on the Queenstown Lakes District occupation exemption list, you don't need a Skills Match Report. You still need to advertise for a suitable New Zealander before you can support a work visa application with Immigration New Zealand. You can do this by listing your vacancy with us or through your usual advertising process.
Vacancy not on the list
If your vacant position is not on the Queenstown Lakes District occupation exemption list, you need to advertise it through us first, before we can provide a Skills Match Report that's required to hire a migrant.
