The Skilled Migrant Visa is the most common choice for people wanting to call New Zealand home.
The skilled migrant visa is a points based system, and to be eligible to apply you must meet a level set by Immigration NZ, with points being awarded based on different factors relating to your skills, qualifications, experience and personal factors. Because attaining the set level of points is dependent on so many factors, it is essential to have your eligibility assessed by a licensed immigration advisor to avoid costly disappointment. Once you know that you are eligible the application is a two part process with the initial step being an online Expression of Interest (EOI) submitted to immigration. If your EOI is selected by immigration then you will be invited to apply for residence in New Zealand.
