Default 160 points

Dear All,

Myself is M.Architecture & My wife M.Tech(Computers) are achieving 160 points as per the points calculator but want to know what are the chances to get invitation. What are the common reasons for rejection. Any hidden things by which we can achieve some bonus points.

Thanks in advance.

If you score 160 points on the EOI and you can justify every point claimed at the time of EOI submission then your chances of ITA are good. 160 points will be automatically selected from the pool and assuming it gets through preliminary checking you will get ITA.
Common reasons for early rejection are :-
(1) Not calculating the points correctly, so claiming for points you aren't eligible for.
(2) Not meeting the basic criteria for both principal and partner applicant - e.g. English Language Requirement.
(3) Claiming for recognized qualifications that need assessment - in other words they aren't recognized or exempt from assessment.
(4) Qualifications and work experience don't match.
(5) Don't have the experience years you are claiming for.

etc. etc

Nobody on the application can retrospectively claim for any points.....i.e. you can't say you meet the English Language Requirement now if your IELTS exam is in a month as you may not achieve the desired result.
You cannot claim you have 6 years or more of work experience when you only have 5 years and 7 months.
You can't claim the points for someone aged between 19 and 30 when you are 31.
etc etc.....you get my point!

If your application does not have an NZ job offer, NZ study experience or NZ work experience you will not be approved for RV. You need one of these three attributes in order to be approved RV. The most the principal applicant could hope for without any of them would be a Job Search Visa which temporarily allows you to come to NZ to secure a written skilled job offer and thus satisfy one of the three criteria I mentioned. With the job offer your points score would increase and you would be approved RV for all persons on the application.

EOI submitted Jan 2010. ITA Jan 2010. ITA submitted Apr 2010. RV approved June 2011. Passports stickered and back to us Aug 2011. Secured job Dec 2011. Arrived Mar 2012. PRV Mar 2014......now eligible for citizenship but at $1175 Yeah but Nah!!!
