New Accredited Employer Work Visa
The AEWV will be introduced, replacing 6 temporary work visas with one.
The new Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) application process will be employer led. Before hiring a migrant on the AEWV employers will need to comply with a set of conditions.
The migrant will need to meet the skills and experience stipulated as part of the job check.
Employers will be able to apply for accreditation from late September, ahead of the 1 November 2021 introduction date.
Employers accredited under the current system will need to apply and meet the policy requirements of the new accreditation system.
