Will everyone get RV first and then after 2 years PR or the NZ government will decide who gets the RV first or the PR.Do you have any study or work experience in NZ or do you have a job offer in NZ ?
If you don't it is unlikely you'll be approved RV (not PR....that is only available after 2 years on RV). You will most likely be offered Job Search Visa.
Nope.Will everyone get RV first and then after 2 years PR or the NZ government will decide who gets the RV first or the PR.
Is there a way, I can get PR directly?
Thank you for your response.
You will get RV if you meet all the basic requirements and criteria AND you have some sort of study or work experience in NZ or you have a job offer in NZ. Without any of that you will not get RV. You may get a job search visa instead and then if you find a job you should then get RV.
You CANNOT get PR through the skilled migrant scheme straight away. It is impossible. To get PR you must have held RV for minimum 2 years and you must satisfy one of the five criteria at the time of application. PR isn't automatic. You must apply for it from the time you become eligible.
JSV (via Skilled Migrant Category application) is not on a first come first served basis......you may be confusing this with the Silver Fern Job Search Visa which is on that basis and there are only 300 available each year around the beginning of November.Hi!
Regarding the job search visa. Is it more like a first-come-first-serve visa or a certain preference criteria is followed. I mean I am inexperienced, with a foreign BE in Mechanical Engineering. If I somehow (God-Willing):fingerscrossed: manage to apply for the visa. Would I get the visa or would they prefer somebody over me who has a better and/or higher degree or has 6 months of work experience ?
Secondly, what are the documents that are actually supposed to be uploaded to ImmigrationNZ on the day of application? Or is it just entering data and they will ask for uploads later on?
I am asking this because I have to decide between choosing the regular and urgent IQA by NZQA. I know for sure that I will get Level 7, so if it is just data entry on the day of application (and no upload) I can save some money.
Please reply soon.
I wonder though, everyone keeps saying that engineering is in-demand all over the World. Engg. is in-demand in NZ. It's on the Long-term shortage, it's urgently in shortage. And yet nobody is willing to give the new guy on the block a chance. Even slightly experienced ones aren't eligible easily that often.
Even though, technically inexperienced graduates should be rather easy to train, and deal with.
Anyways, please reply soon.
