Default Job offer for SMC

Hi there,

I was wondering about the job offer needed for SMC.

Can this be any job offer (skilled obviously) or does this job also have to be on the shortage lists/ talent/ accredited employer etc. as is the process when applying for a work visa?

What I am asking is all a person would need for extra points on SMC is a job offer which is linked to their skills regardless of if the job is a shortage or not?

It is not essential to already have a job in NZ or a job offer in NZ to apply for Resident visa via the SMC.
If you have enough points on the EOI you can apply without a job offer.

If you need a job offer to get enough points so you can apply or at least guarantee the EOI is selected at 140 points or more then see here :-

SM 7.10 in the Operating Manual.

Operational Manual - Immigration New Zealand. Issue Date: 26 January 2015

According to this, at least one of your qualifications, skills or experience must match so yes so long as there is a link between the skilled job offer and you by means of your qualifications, skills or experience then you should be fine ?
