Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Hi
I am a New Zealand lawyer based in Wellington and will help you with your question today. Please give me a minute to read your question
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

There is no reason why she cannot apply from Namibia if she has job skills which are on the skill shortage list and has good health and a clear police record
Customer
What if she gets a job offer from an employer that is on the skill shartage list like IT
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

That is her best option
Customer
shortage...sorry spelling mistake
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

She has the best chance on that list
Customer
Great job Chris.
Customer
Why can Namibians not apply for a holiday working visa in New Zealand?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

The holiday working visas have only been negotiated with a smaller number of countries-it may be because there was no demand from Namibian people for this. It could be something to suggest to the New Zealand Minister for Immigration, but of course when the border controls are lifted

Customer
Great. Would that be communicated through ministers only or a suggestion from individual?
img

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

I think write to the Minister, as it is a matter of policy rather than a law change which is needed

Customer
Thank you for great advice...will most certainly correspond with NZ Minister then.
