Business migration policies changing
Friday, 13 December 2013


A number of changes are being made to business migration policies to encourage more high calibre migrants to come to New Zealand.
From March next year, the Long Term Business Visa will be replaced with the newly-named Entrepreneur Work Visa and a new points system will be introduced for applicants. Applicants will receive extra points for investing in the regions. They will also require a minimum capital investment of $100,000 to ensure that they can create high growth and innovative businesses, ideally with export potential.

The current Long Term Business Visa will be closed at 4pm New Zealand time on Friday 20 December to prevent a surge in applications being made in the run up to the changes. Applicants who have already lodged an application under the old policy can continue to be processed under that policy.

Professions in high demand in New Zealand

- New Skill Shortage Lists:

To view the latest Long Term Skill Shortage List, published in February 2013

To see the latest Immediate Skill Shortage List, published in February 2013

The new Canterbury Skill Shortage List contains occupations required during the Canterbury rebuild. It has been published in November 2012:

In order to meet the increased need for skilled professionals, the Canterbury Skills and Employment Hub has been established by the New Zealand government.

The Skills Hub helps employers to streamline and speed up their recruitment of workers in the Canterbury region by listing job opportunities and matching job applicants to them. If no New Zealander can be found to fill a position, the Skill Hub will provide a confirmation letter which can be submitted with the work visa application, a Labour Market Check.

 

News from the New Zealand employment market

Katrin Schottke, Employment Adviser at jobs4migrants reports:

'The Building Sector in New Zealand needs people like never before'. Those headlines are increasingly featured in recent newspapers or local recruitment agency requests to us.

Now that the rebuild of Christchurch has started and the building industry is picking up again, it becomes very apparent that '[...] the entire New Zealand building industry will soon experience a huge boom, and inevitably a shortage of construction professionals will result. Some forecasts pick the number of people in construction needing to double, particularly builders with [...] a National Certificate in Carpentry.

There is a high demand for engineers, quantity surveyors, construction project managers and electricians.

One large NZ construction company stated they are particularly looking for 'young Irish workers to aid in Christchurch's civil engineering recovery & helping to rebuild our infrastructure.'

This would be an excellent chance to make your move to New Zealand!

'The Irish are well-known in the [...] construction industry for being highly skilled and motivated workers', according to an article in the Irish Examiner earlier this year, trying to encourage unemployed construction workers to explore opportunities down under.


In light of the current demand and to ensure a smooth immigration procedure we are offering to help you with your work visa application.
We also offer our assistance with your job application procedure to make you a strong contender on the job market for construction workers (professional CV preparation, application material review and further support material from our licensed immigration adviser to reassure your future employers that your visa application is taken care of).

Why not take your chance now and your migration plans a step further?

Talk to us today or write us an email. We look forward to working with you.

Kind regards
Katrin
