Just one Accredited Employer Work Visa has been processed in the month since the category opened.

The National Party has got hold of a leaked Immigration New Zealand paper, and the Party's calling the log-jam disastrous.

Applicants must submit a job-check to obtain the visa, showing the employer couldn't fill the role with a New Zealand worker.

Since job-checks opened six weeks ago, 3,021 have been submitted, but just 817 approved.

Managing Director of Building Recruitment, Kevin Everett joined Heather du Plessis-Allan.
