The Skilled Migrant Category addresses applicants who are planning to take up skilled employment in New Zealand.
Minimum requirements for a resident application under the
Skilled Migrant Category are:
• Good health
• Good character
• Good English language capabilities
• Age limit of 55 years
• Point score of at least 100 under the points system
In principle every applicant who meets the above criteria might be eligible for a resident visa.
The application process under the Skilled Migrant Category consists of two main stages:
- Expression of Interest
- Residence Application
In some cases a third stage, an assessment of the applicant`s qualifications, will be necessary.
