What does Sponsorship for a New Zealand visa mean and do I need it?
For Immigration NZ, a sponsor is a person or organisation who is entitled to support your visa application. Most visas ask for sponsorship as a mandatory requirement for the applicant to be successful.
If applying for a work or residence visa type, you should check if you need to be supported by a sponsor before sending your application. Doing things correctly from the beginning is critical to avoid delays and ultimately, your application being rejected.
The Catch 22 Dilemma
To apply for a New Zealand work visa, you are most likely to need an expression of interest from a sponsor organisation. The problem is that in most jobs, you need to have a visa already to apply. This situation is what we call the Catch 22 dilemma.
The Catch 22 dilemma can be a significant problem for aspiring immigrants.
