Visa renewals & varying Visa conditions

Before your current work visa expires, you must renew or apply for a further temporary visa to allow you to work and stay longer in New Zealand. If your current work visa no longer fits your current circumstances, you will need to vary your visa conditions or apply for a new work visa.
