What is a 'Right to Work - Visa / Passport' certificate?

Your 'Right to Work - Visa / Passport' certificate is a required certificate that Sidekicker uses to confirm your entitlement to work in New Zealand. 

What am I responsible for?

As an employee of Sidekicker, you are responsible for:

  • Notifying Sidekicker of any changes to your visa conditions
  • Taking responsibility for not applying for or completing shifts that exceed your work restrictions

If you exceed your work restrictions or fail to let Sidekicker know that your visa conditions have changed, this may result in disciplinary action and your Sidekicker account could be deactivated.

What do I need to do?

  • If you are a New Zealand citizen: Upload a photo of either your passport, NZ citizenship certificate or birth certificate to the 'Right to Work - Visa / Passport' certificate on your Sidekicker profile. Please set the expiry date to 2030/01/01.
  • If you have a visa: Upload a photo of your visa to the 'Right to Work - Visa / Passport' certificate on your Sidekicker profile. Make sure this includes your passport number and visa start date

You can find the certificates section of your profile by clicking the edit profile button and scrolling down -- it's just towards the bottom of the page. 

What if I don't have proof of my citizenship or haven't uploaded this?

If you have not uploaded proof of your citizenship, you will not be able to see any shifts on your Sidekicker app or desktop.


Will my proof of passport or right to work be displayed to clients?
