Free Trade Agreement Opens New Zealand to Filipino Nurses

Filipino nurses may soon find themselves working in New Zealand as the country opens its doors to foreign workers as part of the ASEAN Australia New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (AANZFTA).

Under the trade pact, New Zealand will accept up to 100 Philippine nurses to work in the country for a period of three (3) years.  Working visas will also be issued to allow the nurses to work while they undergo bridging courses and exam.

For its part, Australia has announced that under the AANZFTA, it will provide opportunities for Filipino professionals and skilled workers as it expanded the definition of Contractual Service Suppliers in its movement of natural persons (MNP) commitment to cover both professionals, including nurses, and skilled workers.
