Default SMC - Interview questions Guide.

The following list contains some common questions a Case Officer (CO) will ask the applicant and partner in relation to a Resident Visa application via the Skilled Migrant Category for New Zealand Immigration.
Note: The interview is only conducted for applications that do not have a job offer and be aware that this is the last stage in the process where the CO determines whether or not you will be successful in finding a job and settling in NZ, so your answers are key to their decision making process!!!

Why NZ?
What would you do as soon as you arrived in NZ?
What is your plan?

What have you done to secure employment so far?
What support will you have in NZ?
What would you do if you came across any obstacles? (List possible obstacles)
What do you think about the impact of migrants on the socio-economic balance of New Zealand and the wider South West Pacific basin?
How much money do you think you need to make a good living in NZ?
How long do you think it will take to find work?
Mainly, how do you plan to make friends ?
How do you intend to find work ?
What will your Partner do for a living?
What if you do not find work in the area that you have chosen to live?
How will you support yourselves ?
Where will you live?
Have you researched the cost of living, rent/mortgage, utilities, groceries in the area you wish to live?
When do you wish to travel to NZ?
What have you heard about NZ?

Have you visited NZ?
What is your financial situation?
Have you looked at properties?
What wages to you expect?
