How to fill out INZ 1142

The application must be made for an ‘express purpose’ to work for an RSE, and there are certain restrictions and requirements that applicants must adhere to.

Applicants must leave New Zealand no later than the expiration date of their visa. While in New Zealand, they are not allowed to apply for a different type of visa, except for a further limited visa for the same express purpose. They also do not have the same appeal rights as holders of other types of visas. If an applicant remains in New Zealand unlawfully after their limited visa expires, they may be subject to immediate deportation.

To have their application accepted, applicants must submit all the required documents, which must be in English or translated by a recognised translation service. The form must be completed, signed, and accompanied by the application fee and immigration levy. Alternatively, the fee and levy may be provided separately by the prospective recognised seasonal employer if agreed upon in advance.

The document also mentions the need for supporting documents such as a valid passport or travel document, a recent passport-size photograph, medical certificates (including a Chest X-ray Certificate and an RSE Scheme Supplementary Medical Certificate for HIV testing if required), evidence of acceptable medical insurance, and an employment agreement with a New Zealand RSE employer.

Applicants are required to declare any criminal convictions, charges, or investigations against them in any country. They must also declare if they have ever been deported, refused entry, or removed from any country (excluding New Zealand), as this may affect their character requirements for the visa.

The form includes sections for personal details, contact details, RSE employment details, and tax obligations. It also provides an option for applicants to authorize the sharing of their information with Inland Revenue for the purpose of obtaining an IRD number (tax identification number).
