On 4 July 2022, the Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) will be introduced.

The AEWV is a new temporary work visa that will replace the Essential Skills Work Visa and Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa when it launches on 4 July 2022.  

As previously announced, employers can get accreditation to use the AEWV to hire migrants on visas for up to 3 years.

From today, applications for a job check are open to accredited employers.

The job check is the second of a 3-step process to be able to hire a migrant worker.
