EMIGRATION SERVICES WORLDWIDE
Emigration and immigration services from international relocation consultants A new life abroad.
If you want to work in New Zealand,
you'll be assessed on a points
system related to a range of
employability factors, including
qualifications, work experience
and age. You will certainly
need a good standard of
spoken and written English.
And you'll receive extra points
if you have a genuine offer of
employment in New Zealand!
It's not as straightforward as it
sounds, though. Points for
qualifications are allocated according
to the New Zealand qualification to which your qualification is comparable, so we may need to obtain an assessment from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. Also bear in mind that registration may be compulsory for your occupation before you can work in New Zealand.
Perhaps you are not interested in working for someone else. You would prefer to establish, buy or invest in a business in New Zealand. If so, you may qualify for business investment migration. This is also assessed on a points system, with factors such as business experience and investment funds taken into consideration.
Whichever you choose, up-to-date advice is essential because the New Zealand government recalculates the pass mark each week!
If you do not want to work when you arrive in New Zealand, you may still qualify if you are able to invest funds over there for a specified period of time.
If you have family connections with New Zealand, this will certainly help your visa application. We will fully explore this possibility on your behalf.
