Relaxation of visa conditions for Supermarket Workers

Relaxation of conditions applies to:

– Temporary work visa holders employed in a supermarket when a region is in Alert Level 3 or 4 can work in addition to the conditions specified on their visa from 20 August 2020 to 31 July 2021

– Students can work more than the maximum of 20 hours per week for the same relaxation period provided they continue to meet their study requirements.

– The above includes interim visa holders if they held a temporary work or student visa immediately prior to that visa.

– Supermarkets mean those operated by: Woolworths New Zealand – owners of Countdown, Super Value and FreshChoice supermarkets; or Foodstuffs Limited – owners of New World, Pak n Save and Four Square.

– These changes apply to specified visa holders who are employed by a supermarket on the day before the region enters Alert Level 3 or 4.
