New Zealand Work Visa

New Zealand Visa consultants

New Zealand is appealing for foreign nationals to live and work; New Zealand ranks among the countries having the lowest unemployment rate and its economy is growing rapidly but the job market remains very competitive. Getting a job in New Zealand may be a challenge if you have not arranged work before arriving. The more experience and qualifications you have to offer, the better are your chances for securing a position. However, even well-qualified migrants may take six or more months to find suitable employment and will often need to move out of their specialist field. New Zealand has a low crime rate and also have low pollution index.

Unable to Get the New Zealand PR visa - Move to Australia

If you aspire to work in New Zealand on a temporary basis, you can apply for the Work permit but this doesn’t provide you the PR (permanent resident) status in New Zealand; however, you can appeal for the citizenship while working on a temporary work visa, with specific conditions. The New Zealand Work Permit allows you to live and work in New Zealand up to 30 months and it is mandatory to secure an employment letter before applying. People get allured by work permit but usually forget to ponder this inflexible and temporary nature of work permit. Everybody wants to live permanently in a country like New Zealand but due to stiff rules and regulations, it has become hard to procure.

New Zealand government has tightened immigration requirements due to competition for jobs and housing shortage crisis. For the Skilled Migrants category, the government has increased the number of points from 140 to 160 and has set basic minimum criteria of $48,859 a year for skilled jobs. As it is difficult to fulfill these requirements so the aspirant may apply for Australian PR as the Australian point system is more lenient comparatively to New Zealand, and once your Australian pr is approved then you don’t need any authority to work in New Zealand.

We recommend you to explore the skilled immigration (Australia PR Visa) route under which you are entitled to avail innumerable benefits like:

  • Free Education for children
  • Eligibility to work with any employer
  • Free medical services
  • Spouse is eligible to work full time
  • Retirement pension

The PR visa rejection rate is quite high and the visa processing fee is also huge. Hence, we would recommend you to take professional immigration services rather than handling the file on your own which may result in refusal of the file and that would spoil your chances of migrating even in future. There are immense opportunities to earn well in Australia and Canada apart from the above-listed benefits. Hence, we would suggest you to visit our office for a detailed discussion with our legal experts and take things forward in a professional manner. Our initial eligibility assessment consultation is FREE.
