Wellington, Aug 25 NZPA - New interim visas will allow migrants waiting for their visas to be processed to continue working, Immigration Minister Jonathan Coleman says.

It was a bonus for businesses and employees, Dr Coleman said.

"In most circumstances it provides continuity in the workplace as employers have the security of knowing their staff member can continue working legally while Immigration New Zealand processes their application."

The interim visas will be in place by March.

Changes to the sponsorship provisions will allow organisations and government departments to sponsor someone's visa where previously only individuals could.
