I would like know some site with a guide to get a Cook islands Work Permit. Also know all the medical tests i need do to get this visa. Thank´s!
Hey Cris, does this help at all?
The Entry, Residence and Departure Act 1977 states that anyone other than a Cook Islands citizen or permanent resident who wishes to live and work on the Islands must first obtain a work and residence permit.
A business or employer can apply for a work permit on behalf of an expatriate employee. As a rule, a permit is issued for a year, and is renewable on application by the employer. The work permit is tied to the applicant's employer and is not transferable to another employment.
For those seeking a 3-year work permit or short-term work permit (including journalists, photographers and television crew), permission should be sought through the following contact:
Mr. Tutai Toru
Principal Immigration Officer
