Median wage increase to $29.66 on 27 February 2023

The Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV) and other New Zealand visa schemes use wage thresholds indexed to the median wage. This means that when the median wage changes, the criteria to grant visas also change.

As INZ advised last year, the median wage will increase to NZD $29.66 on 27 February 2023. This is based on the June rate published by Stats NZ the last year.

Wage thresholds must be met at the job check and visa application stages of the AEWV process.
