Your employer can check your work entitlement status through VisaView if they are registered for this
service, or by calling Immigration New Zealand on one of these numbers:

Your employer may also ask you for additional evidence about your entitlement to work status.
Note to employers: It is an offence to employ someone who is not entitled to work under the Immigration Act 2009. An employer has a defence
if the employer did not know the person was not entitled to work, took reasonable precautions and exercised due diligence to ascertain whether
the person was entitled to do the work. Relying solely on this IR330 form does not constitute reasonable precautions or due diligence. Instead,
employers may check entitlements using the online VisaView service ( ) or by contacting Immigration
New Zealand or by seeking documentary evidence.
Please give this completed form to your employer. If you don't complete Questions 1, 2 and 4, your employer must deduct tax from your pay at
the no-notification rate of 45 cents (plus earners' levy) in the dollar. For the no-notification rate on schedular payments see the table on page 4.
