There are two types of work visas specifically for students who have completed their tertiary studies in New Zealand, subject to first meeting the criteria for this visa.
Certain students can stay after studies. If you graduate from a study programme of two years or a level 7 or higher qualification that is recognized under the Skilled Migrant Category residence instruction, you can be granted a 12-month Post-study work visa (open). With this visa, you have the ability to seek, obtain and undertake work in any position with any employer without the normal requirement for a prerequisite employment offer.
The Post-study work visa (employer assisted) let you work in a specific job, which must be relevant to your studies, for two more years.
