Can you tell if New Zealand Immigration is easily possible and what are the possibilities of getting a job there??
I am Network Engineer with 5 years of experience. I have 6,7,6,7 Overall 6.5 in IELTS.
Some people say that a job in New Zealand is required to get Immigration to New Zealand. Is it true ??

It is not essential to have a job offer in NZ. It all depends how many points you can score on the EOI.
At the moment you need at least 160 points with or without a job offer for the EOI to be selected.
If you are unable to reach this score then you'll need to increase the points by gaining a job offer.

Minimum overall score accepted in IELTS is 6.5 yes.
No you don't gain any points for this. It is a basic mandatory requirement.
No you won't get an invite at 155 points.
Immigration will only select 160 and above.
