Moving to New Zealand
Aotearoa is excited to welcome veterinarians from around the world for a good time and a long time.
Applying for a visa
Veterinarians can fast-track their residency under New Zealand Immigration's Green List. As a veterinarian, you can apply for an Accredited Employer Work Visa for up to three years. From September 2022, you can then apply for New Zealand residency without having to wait the usual two years.
When you arrive
No matter how much planning you've done, it can be difficult to know where to start once you step off that plane. You may be feeling jet lagged, excited or nervous – or a combination of all three!
