Skilled Migrant Category

Kia ora,

Due to unprecedented demand, we have extended the deadline for the submission of Skilled Migrant Category Resident Visa (SMC) expressions interest (EOIs) claiming 160 points to 1300 (NZDT) this Friday 11 November 2022.

This allows those who may have experienced issues with the online process more time to submit their EOI.

Changes to English language test requirements

We have changed our requirements to allow English language test results that are more than 2 years old to be submitted as evidence of an acceptable standard of English for residence applications. This applies to EOIs in the pool on or before 1300 (NZDT) 11 November 2022.

Changes have also been made to enable people to continue to submit an EOI if they have booked an English language test or requested an NZQA assessment.

Ngā mihi,
