Immigration New Zealand has joined eMedical, an online immigration health processing system developed by Australia’s Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) and Citizenship and Immigration Canada. eMedical will replace INZ’s existing paper-based medical certificates, and will be used by INZ’s panel physicians.
eMedical is used by panel physicians to record results of an applicants’ immigration medical examination. This information is provided to Immigration New Zealand through a secure online channel.
eMedical will save time and costs for Immigration New Zealand and its customers. It provides a secure online channel for a visa applicant’s health information. In most cases, this information will not need manual assessment by immigration officers.
The current paper-based manual process for processing and assessing immigration health information is slow and costly and it’s a significant barrier to achieving timely visa decisions.
What are the benefits of eMedical?
Eliminating paper medical certificates will help Immigration New Zealand cut application processing times, reducing administrative overhead costs and client follow-up queries.
eMedical will shorten the referral process required when an applicant’s medical certificate must be reviewed by a medical assessor. Requests for additional information will be electronically channelled back through eMedical to the applicant’s panel physician, improving the customer experience by eliminating the current Immigration New Zealand’s “middle man” step.
When will eMedical be introduced?
eMedical is being rolled out in a staged approach from November 24, with the system and new business processes tested on a group of six offshore countries in the first stage. These countries are Cambodia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
eMedical will have a second rollout stage at the end of January 2015 to all offshore eMedical-enabled countries. The final rollout stage will be onshore in New Zealand from the end of March 2015, coinciding with the establishment of Immigration New Zealand’s new onshore panel physician network.
From the end of March 2015, the majority of medicals in support of a visa application will be submitted electronically by Immigration New Zealand’s panel physicians and be triaged, and decided in most cases by the Immigration Health System.
From 23 November 2014, the department will accept English language test scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-based test (TOEFL iBT) and the Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) across the Temporary Graduate, Skilled, Former Resident, and Work and Holiday visa programmes.
Scores from the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) test will also be accepted from a test taken on or after 1 January 2015 (to coincide with the launch of Cambridge English Language Assessment's new reporting system).
These tests are alternatives to the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and the Occupational English Test (OET), and have been accepted in the Student visa programme since 2011.
Student visa applicants can continue to provide scores from the IELTS, OET, TOEFL iBT, PTE Academic or Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) tests.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has completed its annual review of two of the Essential Skills in Demand (ESID) Lists – the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL) and the Immediate Skill Shortage List (ISSL). The Ministry regularly reviews the ESID lists to ensure that they meet the changing needs of the labour market, and to ensure opportunities for New Zealanders first. Changes will be made to these lists in March 2015.
Long Term Skill Shortage List
The LTSSL identifies occupations that have an absolute (sustained and ongoing) shortage of skilled workers both globally and throughout New Zealand. Migrants who gain employment in one of these occupations may be granted a work visa under the LTSSL Work to Residence or Essential Skills instructions. Migrants applying for residence under the Skilled Migrant Category may gain bonus points towards their application if they have an offer of employment, work experience or qualifications in an area of absolute skill shortage identified on the LTSSL.
The outcomes of the review of the LTSSL are to:
1. retain six occupations which were reviewed:
- General Practitioner
- Physicist (Medical)
- Registered Nurse (Aged Care)
- Registered Nurse (Critical Care and Emergency)
- Registered Nurse (Medical)
- Registered Nurse (Perioperative)
The qualifications for using the LTSSL for Registered Nurses in Critical Care and Emergency, Medical, and Perioperative will be tightened to require five years relevant work experience (currently three years) to ensure that migrants are not competing with New Zealand nurse graduates for entry level positions.
2. remove External Auditor
3. remove the following 19 occupations for which there have been very low volumes of work visas over the last five years and for which other immigration options are more suited
- Aeronautical Engineer
- Life Scientist nec (Animal Scientist or Bioinformatics)
- Agricultural Engineer
- Marine Designer
- Agricultural Scientist (Farm Systems Scientist)
- Medical Oncologist
- Biomedical Engineer
- Mining Engineer (excluding Petroleum)
- Biotechnologist (Genetics Scientist)
- Network Analyst
- Cardiac Technician (Clinical Cardiac Physiologist including Perfusionist)
- Nuclear Medicine Technologist
- Educational Psychologist
- Radiation Oncologist
- Intensive Care Specialist
- Social Professional nec (Applied Social Scientist)
- Life Scientist (Regulatory Toxicologist)
- Transport Engineer
- Life Scientist nec (Anatomist or Physiologist (Clinical Respiratory Physiologist Scientist))
4. remove two occupations (Construction Project Manager (Chip sealing, Asphalt or other Technical Manager) (Roading and Infrastructure) and Environmental Research Scientist (Water Quality Analyst)) which have separate over-lapping listings on the LTSSL and are therefore redundant
5. move University Lecturer from the LTSSL to the ISSL.
