New Zealand Immigration

New Zealand is one of the developed countries which was even barely affected by the global financial crisis. The government of New Zealand tends to increase the job opportunities with every new year for prospective immigrants to the country. There are many job opportunities for specialists in industries such as engineering, medicine and IT. And even more extra- ordinary remains the fact that there exist numerous opportunities for the generally skilled professionals too.

If you have not succeeded to get good score in the English Language Test but your academic qualification is post-grad or above, then you are highly encouraged to apply for the New Zealand immigration as a skilled worker. You have to score minimum of 160 points on New Zealand points table, and, by any chance, if your partner is also educated then that would make up a significant plus-point for you to score an opportunity of immigrating permanently to New Zealand.

Skills presently in-demand for New Zealand

New Zealand gives the opportunity to live and work permanently not only to those people who are sheer experts within their professions, but also to the generally skilled professionals from all over the world.

Long-term Skill Shortage List

The Long-Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL) identifies occupations in which there is a shortage of highly skilled workers both globally and throughout New Zealand.

If you get a job in an occupation on the Long-Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL) and meet relevant list requirements, you may be granted a Work Resident Visa under the Long-Term Skill Shortage List work visa. Then you will be eligible to apply for residence in two years, provided you meet standard requirements and that your job has a base salary of at least NZ $45,000.
