Default Clarifications needed on Work Experience Points

Hi All,

Good Day ! Need some clarification on gaining work experience points. After i completed my Bachelors degree, have started working as Software Engineer for about 1 and half years. After that did my Masters degree and started working till now for past 9+ years. So in total i have around 10+ years experience. All these 10+ years my experience falls under Software Engineer occupation.

Now my doubt is, can i gain my complete 10+ years work experience points or is it i will gain work experience points those only after my Masters degree which is around 9 years only.

Help to clarify my query. Thanks.

Work experience is all work experience years. The question doesn't mention post-qualification experience. It is only when you are going for the absolute skill shortage bonus points does it mention minimum post-qualification years.

Hi,

Need some clarification. Read in one of the forum that work experience in India is not comparable to New Zealand labor market. Is it so? By the way my occupation group is Software Engineer which falls under LTSSL. So can i claim points for my India work experience also?

India is not a comparable labour market.Aim for 160 points,more points means more paperwork.

Hi ,

Thanks for your prompt response.

Now my concern is without my india work experience , my overall experience falls around 9 years only. With india experience only i can gain 10+ years experience which gives me full points. In this case if i cannot gain full points for work experience then i may not get 160 points. Can clarify on this is it anythig need to be done if this is the case to claim points for india experience. By the way, my company i worked in india was a multinational company. Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

I worked in multinational company. Based on this link seems my work experience in india may be claimable. But is it only during ITA only we will come to know if this work experience in india is acceptable or not. Is it we can know before that itself similar to IQA for education. Because during ITA we will pay more amount as fees right. So thought before that is there a way we can know confirmed that how my experience is claimable similar to IQA for education. Because if ITA is rejected then whole money will be gone. Thats why thoyght of checking Thanks.

You will probably only find out if the work experience is acceptable (or not) once an Immigration case officer has your file and is actively processing at the ITA stage. There is no other work experience check previous to this in NZ, unless you need professional registration for your chosen occupation. If this is the case then the professional registration body in NZ will carry out their own qualification and work experience assessment for you to become professionally registered to work in NZ in that occupation and the outcome of that assessment can be copied to Immigration for use in their processing. If the professional registration body happy with your qualifications and work experience and feel you can be professionally registered to work in NZ then Immigration should also be happy.
If your occupation doesn't require professional registration then there isn't much you can do but apply and take the risk.

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

Since my occupation falls under Software Engineer, so i think no professional registration needed. So i think need to take risk and see only. Thanks for your clarification. Will ping here if any further clarification needed. Thanks.
