Good news, the border exception for critical health workers has been extended to 31 March 2021. This means that health or disability workers who have been offered a role to deliver critical services in New Zealand, can now have a start date up to 31 March 2021.
This extension will help recruitment for the health sector before the Christmas and summer holiday period, especially with the recruitment of overseas doctors and medical professionals.
It also enables approved Internationally Qualified Nurses (IQNs) to start a Competency Assessment Programme before 31 March 2021.
