mandatory health and character requirements.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Expression of Interest: In your online Expression of Interest you will claim points for
    your qualifications, work experience, age etc before submitting it to Immigration New Zealand. All
    Expressions of Interest received will be ranked from highest to lowest points and placed into different
    interest. The number of points you will need for your Expression of Interest to be selected from the pool
    depends on the quality of the competing candidates, who have entered their Expression of Interest at the
    same time as you. In most cases you will need a job offer in New Zealand to claim 50-70 additional points
    that will make the deciding difference for the successful outcome of your Expression of Interest.
  • Work Experience: A recognized work experience, if you are not able to qualify for skilled
    employment points system or for work experience in the industry, then your work experience should have been
    gained in a comparable labor market. While considering this work experience, you must be a citizen or

    that country.

    qualifications and work experience with minimum payment threshold. You can claim points for skilled
    employment based on the jobs you are currently applying or a job offer you have received under the Skilled
    Migrant Category.
  • English Language Ability: Applicants need to submit valid test scores. IELTS report with an
    overall band score of 6.5 or better in the General or Academic modules. The necessary standard of
    English capabilities is highest for principal applicants under the Skilled Migrant Category, because the
    goal of this policy is to attract skilled migrants with an excellent professional background that can be
    transferred to New Zealand. It is realistic to say that anybody wanting to find employment and use their
    highly qualified skills will need to be able to communicate in English on a very high level.   If
    you have to be registered with the professional board in charge for your profession, the required level of
    English might be even higher. This applies for teachers, nurses, doctors etc.

New Zealand Methodology for PR Holders.

  • If you want to travel, your Permanent Resident Visa will need to be in a valid passport. You may need to
    apply to transfer your permanent resident visa to a new passport.
  • Non-principal applicants can’t apply for permanent residence before the principal applicant, unless a
    non-principal exception applies.
  • If we’re unable to grant you a Permanent Resident Visa, we may be able to offer you another resident visa or
    a variation of your resident visa travel conditions. This would give you more time to travel to and fro
    from New Zealand as a resident.
