Default Work permit unused. Any problem for skilled visa?

Hello everyone

My employer earlier sponsored NZ work permit (2 yrs) but I didn't go as the project got cancelled suddenly. This was in 2009

Now If I apply for Skilled migrant visa, is there any possibility of rejection as I didn't use a work permit earlier?

Appreciate your response

Hi,

No.
The fact that you have previously been awarded a visa which expired (as you didn't use it), shouldn't cause any detriment to future applications.
There may well be a question on the SM Visa application form relating to previous visa's so you may actually have the chance to explain although as I said Immigration wouldn't look at you unfavourably.

Regards,
