Default Request your suggestion(s) Regarding New Zealand Work visa/Points based visa.

Hello,

Happy to see all the expert expats helping the newbies, soo kind of your nature.

Sorry for posting many qus but I am curious to know.

I am Sri Sai kiran.peddi from India, i have a plan to work and live in New Zealand, I have few doubts regarding the visas etc...

1. How is the present job market for overseas software Testers (3+ exp) in New Zealand?

2. Is it possible for me to search job from India and make employer give me Offer letter? If so can i apply points based PR visa?(I checked my points at immigration.govt.nz pointsindicator - if i can get offer letter from employer, i am getting 170 points.)

3. With This PR visa can i work in Australia for my skill?

4. If i get PR visa can i take my parents (their ages 63 -father & 60 - mother) to NZ with me permanently?

5.If point 2 not possible, is there are any temporary work visas for me to get in to NZ first and then search IT job there? if so can we do any part-time jobs until i get my IT job?

6. Dose IELTS required of any type of visas to NZ? Which band is suggestible?

Thanks a lot for your patience.

Regards,
Sai.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

1. Unsure as this isn't my field of expertise, but it is a skill shortage on the LTSSL, therefore there should be jobs out there.
Try www.seek.co.nz and www.trademe.co.nz to search for jobs which will also show the names of the recruitment agencies dealing in those types of roles.
2. Yes you can search jobs from India and apply from India. If you are a person of interest you could be interviewed over telephone and/or Skype. You can't make an employer in NZ give you an offer letter. All you can do is hope to get a formal offer in writing.
3. The visa is Residency Visa not PR. Common misconception. You can only get PR after you have been a Resident visa holder 2 years. In answer to your question - No, you can only go to Australia when you have gained NZ citizenship which can only be applied for after 5 years as a Resident visa holder.
4. Your parents can migrate to NZ if you get Residency but only after you have lived in NZ for a minimum 3 years as a Resident and you satisfy the criteria to be a sponsor - you have to earn enough to support them both etc etc.
5. As you have said, you need a job offer to enable you to claim enough points to apply for Residency via Skilled Migrant Route. You also need a job offer in NZ to secure a Temporary Work visa or Work To Residency visa. The only visas that will allow you to come to NZ and search for work are the Working Holiday Visa and the Silver Fern Visa. Look at both via the Immigration website as you have to meet the eligibility criteria for both in order to apply.
www.immigration.govt.nz
6. If you can't prove that your study was taken in the medium of English then yes you must have IELTS pass at minimum 6.5 overall in order to meet the English Language requirement for all visas into NZ.

Regards,
