Last month I got all 40hrs per week and project is in progress very well.


In my new 1 yr fix term contract, it is mentioned that minimum I will get minimum 20hrs per week or maximum 40hr per week for project execution based on the requirement of my employers client. My employer has said that sometime I may get 20hrs per week but most of the time I will get 40hrs per week. My job description is also complying with my ANZSCO Code that I had submitted at the time of EOI.


I am going to submit my 1month contract, pay slip of one month contract and new one year fix term contract to immigration office this week.

Please advise if will help me to change my visa status from Skilled Category work visa to Resident Visa.


Note: My Resident application is already under processed but it was deferred for 9 month till I get the ongoing and sustainable employment in my occupation in New Zealand.

Your advise is highly appreciated.
Congratulations on getting the above job, can you tell me what is your skilled occupation and how long it took you to find your relevant job.

So long as your average hours over the 1 year period of the job offer guarantees at least minimum 30hrs per week then Immigration should accept it as meeting sufficient requirements of what they consider a full time minimum 1 year skilled work contract to be and assuming the salary meets the skilled occupation threshold for those hours.
Your company may have to re-word the job offer letter a number of times until it is accepted.

Thanks for your reply. Really helpful.

Please elaborate following point in detail.

I have received contract letter, what I am going to get each month is the salary slip only that will show my hours of work done in month, duration and the rate. please confirm and advise if my employer will have to update the contract letter further moving forward each time?

I did not get the point. please clarify and help

It is the written skilled job offer that will get you the Resident Visa not your monthly salary slip.
That offer needs to meet Immigrations criteria fully before they will accept it. It needs to contain all the info possible relating to you, the job offer, the responsibilities and how they match the skilled occupation experience you claim to have, the average number of weekly hours of work, the salary or rate etc. Neither your employer nor you will know the exact criteria that Immigration wants to read on that job offer letter so it is quite normal that a company may have to re-write the written skilled job offer letter a few times before it is perfect for the purposes of Immigration and the type of visa you are applying for.

My Visa is Skilled Category Job Search Visa. I have submitted my employment evidence to immigration office. I have submitted following documents
1) 1 Year fix term contract employment document - Certified
2) Passport copies - Certified

Please advise how much time Immigration office normally takes to process resident visa and what further documents they may ask before taking final decision to stamp resident visa on passport.

Sorry. No idead really.
Skilled Category Job Search Visa is relatively new and there is little history within the forum so I'm unsure how long the transition takes and what further questions Immigration may ask.

Hi,

I have submitted my employment contract to Immigration New Zealand. Currently my visa is Skilled Category Job Search Visa. My Residence Application is already submitted and deferred for 9 months until I get the skilled employment (Permanent or 1 Year contract).

I have listen that employer will have to fill the Employer Supplementary Form-Skilled Migrant Category as well.

My points are already 160 and with that employment I have now 210 points. My Residence application was submitted before policy change in the month of June, 2017.

Based on my information, such form is only required to fill by employer when a employee have silver fern visa and it is not required for skilled category job search visa.

Following is the portion of

Your residence application

When you obtain an offer of ongoing skilled employment (as per immigration instructions), you must let Immigration New Zealand (INZ) know. If your employment meets the criteria for skilled employment, we will assess you as having demonstrated an ability to settle in and contribute to New Zealand and we will approve your application for residence under the Skilled Migrant Category. You do not need to wait for the end of your deferral period before having your residence application further assessed. As soon as you have obtained an offer of ongoing employment, you should provide the details of the employment to your nearest INZ office, where it will be assessed.

Please advise if it is essential in my case so that I could inform my employer to expect such form in near future.

Whether the supplementary employer form is required shouldnt be your question as the answer is irrelevant. Download it from the INZ website and ask your employer to complete it, then send in to INZ. If it isn't required INZ will just ignore it.
