New Zealand's New Immigration Amendment Bill a Breather for all Migrants

New zealand Visa
There can never be any news sweeter than this for people who have already packed their luggage to migrate and work in NZ. According to the new bill, there will be no employers in New Zealand who'd exploit migrant workers, the framework within the bill ensures that employers involved in exploiting migrant workers shall be handpicked and penalized.
Immigration Minister, Michael Woodhouse has ascertained that such employers can either face a fine up to 100,000 USD or a jail sentence up to seven years or both to make things even worse. The migrant employers holding residence visas can also come under the ambit if found guilty, they can also be deported if the offense committed falls within 10 years of gaining residence visas. This new bill will without doubt boost confidence and trust in the migrants relocating to New Zealand seeking new beginning.
Woodhouse also said that, there are few who constantly tire the migrant-class by forcing them work for long hours and for minimum wages. Such scenarios are mostly reported from migrant workers who was hired by migrant employers from their own community. The new bill shows how government has taken the seriousness of this offense into account while introducing such a bill. Migrant workers can now enjoy the same rights as any other worker in New Zealand.
The new bill will extend the scope of Immigration officers by empowering them with duties to ensure that such practices never occur in New Zealand. The officers can now enter employer premises to search for any irregularities as well as communicate with the employees to identify any offenses that has been taking place, they will also ensure that the migrant workers are abiding the law and their documents are valid.
Apart from this, the Border Inspection system will see the use of advance X-ray Machines. These machines will be used throughout the country's major airports to screen luggage as well as the arriving traffic. Addition of high-tech equipment to ease the loading and unloading of baggage into the X-Ray machines will also ensure smooth functioning of the Airports. This will also strengthen New Zealand's bio security system, hailed as one of the best in the world. All of these added technologies will make the job easier for the Quarantine inspector and ensure that a healthy filter is set in the right place to do the job.
As mentioned earlier, there can never be a better time to migrate and work in New Zealand. No wonder why New Zealand visas are so much in demand these days.
