Migrant groups look ahead to border and visa rules

From Morning Report, 6:48 am on 4 November 2020

Migrant groups are looking ahead to what a Labour Government will do to border and visa rules.

Labour's manifesto signals an overhaul of partnership visas, reducing barriers to the parent category and reviewing Pacific immigration.

It intends to set aside one in 10 managed isolation places for overseas workers.

The president of the Migrant Workers Association, Anu Kaloti, told RNZ immigration reporter Gill Bonnett that with Labour governing alone and more ethnically diverse MPs, there is hope for change.
