From: Ziyun(Evan) Wang

Tēnā koe team,

Trust all is well with you.

I am a New Zealand Citizen.

Given the rapidly approaching starting date of the employer accreditation applications, I am writing to kindly request the most recent copies(and notes) of any official consultation/discussion Immigration New Zealand has had with the Government in relation to future Work and Resident Visa pathways for those Work Visa holders who are earning below the median wage. It appears that there aren't any viable visa pathways for them based on the current accreditation policies.

Appreciate your assistance in this regard and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Nāku noa, nā

Minister of Immigration in the last 3 months about work and residence visa
options for people earning below the median wage'. Can you please confirm

know what other information you are requesting.
