guys, I want to know if I can claim for bonus points for absolute skill shortage? I'm an Accountant. I searched the NZ website and saw that it falls under immediate skill shortage. Is immediate skill shortage the same as absolute skill shortage?

thanks

The difference between the ISSL and the LTSSL is that LTSSL occupations are in areas of long term identified skill shortages.

Jobs on the ISSL are those occupations where the skill shortage is supposed to be temporary.

Temporary, however, can still mean a number of years.

You need to ensure that your qualifications areof the same standard as New Zealand’s qualifications to be accepted. They either have to be exempt from assessment or have already been assessed by NZQA as meeting the sufficient minimum standard.

I see... but is the bonus points for absolute skill shortage only available for LTSSL?

my concern is actually is not having enough points (I only got 130 points) to be selected from the pool of EOI and not having any job offer.. if I can get additional 10 pts from the bonus pts, it could really make a big difference..

by the way, I already included my partner's point of 20 in the 130....

Yes. Sorry.
You cannot gain bonus points for the EOI associated with the Skilled Migrant Category for an occupation off the ISSL only the LTSSL.
Meeting the requirements of an ISSL occupation only allows you to get an Essential Skills Temporary Work Visa assuming you get a job offer in NZ and in that occupation skill shortage.

In your particular case your only option is a job offer.

Hello,
As you mentioned in your reply that there are no points for IELTS scores for the principal applicant.
My wife (as partner applicant) has got 20 points for level 9 educational qualification. Would we get some bonus points if she had IELTS scores?
We are stuck with 135 points at this time.
Would IELTS scores for my wife help us get extra points?

Please check the below page, in my case we claimed 20 points for my partner, what we obtained about her english is an evidence from her university that english was the medium of intsrucrion of her entire qualification.*

That was enough for us and our Co did not ask for ielts. However, the co asked my wife in the interview about her english usage in our daily life.
