While New Zealand is thousands of miles away from Ireland it still has a sizeable Irish Community. Approximately 20% of New Zealanders have Irish Heritage and many Irish citizens are currently travelling to New Zealand in search of work.
Senator Daly aims to ensure that the Irish who do travel to New Zealand do not over stay their visa. If they compromise their position while in New Zealand by breaking the law for example, their ability to extend their stay or to re-enter the country is affected. Senator Daly endeavors to ensure that there are enough work visas for Irish people who wish to go to New Zealand.
