Border Exceptions for Teachers

Closed 16 Nov 2021

Opened 2 Nov 2021


In July, the Minister announced a class border exception to allow up to 300 overseas qualified teachers to come to New Zealand to work in eligible early learning services and schools/kura.

Online applications opened a month ago and we are keen to collect feedback from early learning services, schools, and kura that are currently ineligible, or are eligible but haven’t applied yet.

The survey consists of 5 short questions and won't take longer than 5 miuntes.

More information, including eligibility criteria and the application link, can be found on our website
