Help need for EOI under SMC
 
Hi

I have received PTE academic score of 62 where eligibility is 58 and I am ready to submit EOI under SMC.

Below are the points which I will obtain I guess

1. Age - 20 - 39 (38) - 30 Points
2. Skilled Employment - Not Applicable since I don't have experience working in New Zealand
3. Qualification - Level 9 or 10 Postgrad - 70 Points (I have completed Master of Computer Applications (MCA) in 2004 in India but my course is not in the current exception list but it was in previous exception list.

4. Work Experience - 10+ Years in IT - 50 Points
Absolute Skills shortage - 6+ years in software testing - 15 Points

5. Partner - Recognized qualification - Level 9 or 10 - 20 Points (My Partner has completed Master of Science in Computer Science in India)

Total Points will be 185

I have below queries now

a. Can I refer previous exception list or only current exception list for qualification?
b. Do I need to go for PAR for both myself and spouse before submitting EOI?
c. Will I get 70 Points for my educational qualification?
d. My partner hasn't completed IELTS or PTE so is it mandatory for the dependant to complete language eligibility before submitting EOI or by the time I receive ITA she will complete language eligibility. So can I apply EOI now or do I need to wait till she completes language eligibility?

(a) You can only reference current Immigration documents. Previous ones do not meet the current rules so if your qualification (and also that of a partner if claiming partner points) is not listed on the current exceptions list for your country then you MUST have NZQA assessment BEFORE submitting EOI.

(b) You MUST (as a minimum) go for PAR if qualifications for both you and partner are not recognized (exempt and on the list of exempted qualifications for your country).

(c) Maybe. All depends on the individual attributes of your study and qualification. You will only know once assessment has been done.

(d) Yes. If you wish to claim partner points the partner MUST meet the same English Language Requirement as you or the Principal Applicant. That is mandatory. You cannot retrospectively claim points. At the time of submitting EOI you should be able to provide evidence to support every point.

Please note:
You have mentioned claiming the 15 bonus points related to Absolute Skill Shortage and an occupation off the LTSSL. Please note that you CANNOT use a Level 9 or 10 Masters Degree qualification for this. That qualification is too high a level and does not meet the requirements as specified in the LTSSL for that occupation. You can ONLY use a Level 7 degree (Bachelors Degree) so you may also need that qualification assessing.

Also:
Even though you may score a total of 185 points which would be guaranteed selection from the EOI pool, if you don't have an NZ written skilled job offer OR you don't have any NZ work experience OR you don't have any NZ study experience you will NOT be approved for Resident Visa via SMC. The best you could hope for would be a job search visa for the principal applicant only.

Hi Sukumar,

1. Were you given Level 9 for MCA degree?
2. Is your spouse given Level 8 or Level 9 for M.Sc Degree?
3. Were additional points awarded for Absolute Skills shortage?
I would like to go for IQA and EOI based on the definite information else i will not qualify 160 Marks cut off for EOI submission. Please suggest.

Hi

1. I have got Level 9 for MCA degree
2. I haven't applied with Partner points since I got 165 points without partner points.
3. Yes I got additional points for Absolute Skills Shortage since my under graduation is B.Sc Computer Science.

My EOI got selected and received ITA. How many points you are getting without Partner points? Give me the details of your points calculation if you need any other information

3. Work Experience - 10+ Years in IT - 50 Points
4. Absolute Skills shortage - 6+ years in Project management - 15 Points.

If your under graduation is B.sc computer science then you can apply for IQA and you will get 15 points for Absolute Skills shortage. I suggest not to waste money in applying IQA for your partner since you will be getting 165 points without partner points. All the best...

Thank You for the details Sukumar. My graduation is BCA (Bachelor of Computer Applications) followed by Post Graduation MCA. I hope I will get additional 15 points for Absolute skill shortage as I am applying for the skill in LTSSL. Also can you please confirm if you have enquired anyone about the Job opportunities and whether people are successful in getting the PR after going there on the Job Search Visa? I will do my search as well. However, if you have heard any success stories like this then it will give some relief for us to go without hesitation.

It's not going to be easy but there are enough job opportunities available in niche IT skills with good experience and mostly based out in Auckland. Be mindful won't be surplus of IT jobs like in India.

Good luck with your application and job search :thumb:

Did you got RV or JSV? I heard now-a-days they are giving only JSV if we are applying without job offer.

Hi janadhakshin,

Thank you for the details. As per your signature, it took around 7 months for you to secure a job? Was that real tough to get the job? May I know what was your ANZSCO code on which you received the RV and secured the job if possible? Now a days they are giving only JSV if no job offer or no experience / education in NZ.
