SSNZ Auckland Newsletter September issue 22

  1. 1. Settlement Support New Zealand Auckland City – Tāmaki-makau-rau He tōtara wāhi rua he kai n ate toki (“a split tōtara is easy prey to the axe” – keep together, in division is defeat.) Mahuru (September)/Issue 22 2010 Haere Mai, Nau Mai, Haere Mai Kei te pēhea koutou? How are you all? Welcome to the twenty-second Settlement Support New Zealand—Auckland City Newsletter. The purpose of this newsletter is to provide you with information about what Settlement Support – Auckland City does, and where you can find information about employment, education, health services and many other aspects of settling in New Zealand. This is also an opportunity to share with you the Bevan Chuang, services and activities available around Auckland City. Settlement Support Coordinator – Please feel free to pass on this newsletter onto friends, family and community Auckland City colleagues. Updates from Settlement Support New Zealand – Auckland City Presentations SSNZ Auckland City presented at Our Lady Sacred Heart School, a primary school located in Epsom. 6 classes of children aged 5 years old were asked to share their knowledge about new migrants and what they could do to help newcomers settled in the new country. It was interesting to see how diverse the classes were and how much the children know about new migrants. Korean Health & Wellbeing Forum The first Korean Health & Wellbeing Forum was held by Office of Ethnic Affairs and the Korean Society of Auckland Inc on the 7th August. The Forum was held to address the needs of the community to learn more about services available to assist them. You can read more about it on: Client and Service Providers Enquiries 252 people visited SSNZ Auckland City/ARMS Three Kings during August 2010. Close to 40% of the enquiries were related to finding employment in New Zealand, followed by cultural/community and financial assistance. Many of last month’s clients were from India (57) and China (38), followed by the Philippines (19), Fiji and Sri Lanka (each 15).Close to half (44%) of the clients seen in August were Permanent Residents while approximately 25% were New Zealand Citizens and Temporary Permit Holders (e.g. work permits). More than 40% of the clients have lived in New Zealand for less than 2 years. There were enquiries from four service providers, related to employment, translators and interpreters, housing and accommodation, and tertiary education providers. Permanent Long Term Arrival (PLT) to New Zealand – Statistics New Zealand Seasonally adjusted net PLT migration was 1,000 in July 2010, up from 100 in June 2010. Of the PLT arrivals, 30,000 were Australian or New Zealand Citizens. Of the 51,900 who required a permit, 19,500 arrived on work permits; 15,100 arrived on student permits; 13,000 arrived on residence permit, and 3,800 arrived on visitor permit. According to Statistics New Zealand, there were fewer arrivals on each of these permit types compared with July 2009 year, the biggest decrease being 3,600 fewer arrivals on work permits. Net migration to New Zealand was 15,200, compared to 14,500 in July 2009. Net inflow of migrants from United Kingdom was 6,800, down from 9,300 the previous years. Net inflows from India were 5,600 and China 3,500. For more information visit:
  2. 2. Updates from Department of Labour Check out VisaView This service allows New Zealand employers to access records held by Immigration New Zealand and to check whether a person who is not a New Zealand citizen is entitled to work in New Zealand. Under the Immigration Act 2009 (and the Immigration Act 1987), an employer must not employ a foreign national who is not entitled to work in New Zealand or entitled to work for that employer. This applies whether or not the employer knew that the foreign national was not entitled to work. The Department has developed an online service (VisaView) that will let an employer check a prospective employee’s entitlement to work in New Zealand for that employer. The Department has developed a guide to help employers check work entitlement and a work entitlement checklist. The Department’s Contact Centre (0508 WORK NZ) is also available to assist with queries. New Immigration Act commences 29 November 2010 As an employer, your obligations under the Immigration Act 2009 remain essentially the same as under the Immigration Act 1987: you must not employ a non-New Zealand citizen who is not entitled to work in New Zealand. The Immigration Act 2009 will come into effect on 29 November 2010. The key change for employers in the Immigration Act 2009 is that holding an IR 330 form will no longer be a “reasonable excuse” for employing a non-New Zealand citizen who is not entitled to work in New Zealand. Instead, you will have to show that you took “reasonable precautions and exercised due diligence” to check whether they are entitled to work in New Zealand. The Department of Labour wants to support you to meet your obligations, and is doing this in a number of ways. An online system which will allow you to easily obtain information on a potential employee’s work entitlement has been introduced. The system is called ‘VisaView’ and will enable all New Zealand employers to enquire about the work entitlement of a job applicant who is a foreign national. You will simply need to provide information such as a passport number and the last name of the applicant. VisaView will check against the Department’s database and in most cases provide you with a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer, together with any specific work conditions that may apply. VisaView also maintains a history of your enquiries, which will be a useful way for you to demonstrate due diligence in relation to Immigration Act requirements. The Department has also developed ‘A guide to help employers check work entitlement’ and ‘Work entitlement checklist’’. These were put together in close consultation with employers from around New Zealand. Queries regarding employer obligations under the Immigration Act 2009 can be sent to Visit: New Publications Immigrant Selection and the Returns to Human Capital in New Zealand and Australia: and Transition to Permanent Residence - Job outcomes of work permit holders: Skill Shortage List Good news for skilled migrants! Long Term and Immediate Skill Shortage list has been updated and widen. Check it out on: (Long Term Skill Shortage) and (Immediate Skill Shortage)
  3. 3. Community Notices Reaching out to communities Auckland Disability Law ( is a free community legal service in the Auckland region. There are 26 Community Law Centres ( around New Zealand. Auckland Disability Law specializes in disability law and provides professional legal advice for the disabled community of Auckland. Auckland Disability Law works with disabled people, their families, disability groups and legal professionals. We are the newest Community Law Centre in New Zealand, and were set up in 2007 by the Legal Services Agency ( to assist with the unmet legal needs of the disabled people in the region. Having formally launched services in May 2008 we are the only Law Centre in the country that specializes in disability law. As a service provider we operate from the social model and this view is reflected by the following definition: Disability is not something individuals have. What individuals have are impairments. They may be physical, sensory, neurological, psychiatric, intellectual or other impairments. Disability is the process which happens when one group of people create barriers by designing a world only for their way of living, taking no account of the impairments other people have.” (Minister of Disability Issues, 2002, p. 7) So what is it that we actually do as a service? Our work involves providing access to legal information, advice and assistance. We host workshops on various legal issues such as the Mental Health Act, and Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act (PPPR). Auckland Disability Law also has a focus on law reform through bringing the disabled people together and encouraging people to have their say about the issues that affect our community. For more information on our work please visit our website: If you think Auckland Disability Law might be able to assist you please feel free to send us an email on; call (09) 257 5140 or text 027 457 5140.
