To get your visa for New Zealand you will need a Skilled Job

You need an offer of 'skilled employment'

If you want to apply for your work or residence visa under the Skilled Migrant Category, you will need to prove that you have an offer of skilled employment. For most migrants, an 'offer of skilled employment' is the key to their successful migration. 


Your job search must be aligned with your visa application process!

Evaluating whether employment is 'skilled' in terms of the Skilled Migrant Category is a complex legal matter. It requires the expert knowledge of a Licensed Immigration Adviser. 

You that you cannot just accept any job offer in New Zealand, as that might not enable you to apply for that most important work visa or give you points for your Expression of Interest on your way to residency.

Find out more about the importance of fulfilling the minimum requirements for Skilled Employment for your visa application, by looking up our Self-Assessment Guide.

NZIC helped me in my way to get a Visa and job search. They were always available to talk to and were open to all sorts of questions. No matter how random they were. Very friendly staff. And even when they had changes in employee and advisors, they always stayed professional and up to date. I can only say good things and recommend them highly.

“In contrast to another Immigration consultancy that we contacted, your company offered a free webinar and an assessment, warm, approachable staff that communicates openly with potential customers. I found your website and it was very detailed and informative. I understand that your company is a fee for services provider, but that has not been conveyed as a prerequisite during the decision making process.”

At first, Maj kindly explained the whole process and what to expect. I was coached and introduced to New Zealand job market by their Job Search team, and getting assistance until I got a job in the country. The Visa team would also follow me up on my pending documents, so I never felt left out. Truly recommended for those seeking out an option to live in New Zealand. Big thanks from me and my whole family for things NZIC did for us..!

Very pleased and satisfied with the service we received from NZIC. They assisted me and my family from start to finish. Always willing to assist, and communicated our progress every step of the way. With their assistance we managed to obtain permanent resident visa status.
