You MUST score at least 160 points on the EOI in order to get it selected from the pool and hope to progress to ITA.
You MUST also have, either :-
1. An NZ permanent skilled job offer, OR
2. Qualifying NZ work experience, OR
3. Qualifying NZ study experience, OR.....
you WILL NOT be approved for RV regardless of what score you have on the EOI. One of those three requirements in addition to the minimum 160 points is essential in order to be approved RV.

So in answer to your question - Yes.

The best you could hope for in this case would be a 12 month job search visa for the principal applicant only.

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!!!
