The Immigration Minister says he will review temporary work visas and Pacific immigration to make them fit for purpose.

Speaking at a conference of the Association of Migration and Investment today, Iain Lees-Galloway said immigration policy needed to go back to first principles about which skills gaps needed filling.

The immigration system has had policies bolted onto it over the years and a broader review was better than tinkering, he said.

The previous government's decision to make temporary migrants leave the country for a year after a maximum of three years will be looked at.

The review will also look at Pacific immigration and the recognised seasonal employer scheme.

Mr Lees-Galloway said he wanted to create a more streamlined system.

IPT Report 2017

Please click here for some interesting reading noting that on average still 33% of Appeals with the IPT is allowed! This does not take into account those people who have returned to their country not knowing about the Appeal process or not wishing to lodge an Appeal. Interesting question you could ask yourself: what does that say about the quality of a Decision from INZ?
