you must have to show that you are very interested for immigration and you are fully prepare for it , batter to start searching job before interview .

It is also good if you know about New Zeland , little about language been spoken in N.Z and Cultural things plus sports .

Sometimes interview can go up to an hour.

Wish you All the Best .
Thanks zahid, My questions was actually different. I wanted to know how long it took you to reach this stage of interview? like starting from NZQA to EOI and then ITA and now Interview... what is the total time it took for you?

And answer to your Question . its depend on one thing , when your EOI will get selected , After EOI Selection they will send you ITA ( invitation to Apply ) it may takes up to a year if you don't have job offer.

By the way, which visa will they grant. I'm confused, is it resident visa which expires after 2 yrs or a Permanent Residence visa?

If you are applying first time then you will get Residence Visa , Then after two years if you have fulfilled their criteria you will be Granted P.R.

Regards,
Zahid

Won't be Permanent Residency Visa!
These can only be secured in one of two ways :-
(1) after holding a Residency visa for a minimum of 2 years and satisfying one of 5 criteria, or
(2) by being the partner of an NZ citizen, applying for Residency in NZ and you have proved to Immigration you have been in a recognised relationship for over 5 years.

Residency visa does not expire after 2 years. What does expire is the travel condition.
For the holder of a Residency Visa in NZ, they can live here permanently so long as they don't leave the country after the first 2 years.
If they did they would not be allowed back in as the travel condition would have expired which allows a Resident to return.
What they must do after the 2 years is apply for a permanent residency visa which does not have a travel condition and allows the holder to come and go as they please.

Thanks much. When a case is assigned to CO then they should decide it within 3 months. If your case has passed this duration after getting assigned then I'd advise you to call them and ask for an update. It's taking way too long, my case was assigned on 1st July but I've not heard a word from the CO. Still waiting
