Hello,

I'm able to reach 165 points for SMC. However I do not have any NZ work or study experience. So what are the chances of acquiring SMC Visa without NZ experience? Is it worth to try?

Absolutely zero chance.
Having one of :-
an nz job offer
nz study experience, or
nz skilled work experience
is now mandatory to make you eligible for SMC, in addition to at least 160 points on the EOI.
The best you could hope for would be a 12 month Job Search Visa for the principal applicant only.
