Skilled Migrant details announced

 

All applicants who meet the health, character, English and selection point requirements, but do not have either skilled employment or a higher degree gained in New Zealand will be invited to apply for a ‘job search visa’ to enable them to find ongoing skilled employment in New Zealand.

只有新西兰技能就业或有offer,以及在新西兰获得过至少2年的硕士或博士学历的申请人可以发residence visa,海外申请人分数够只能只能发 job search visa。如果海外申请人在新西兰(新新源移民),则jsv有效期9个月;如果海外申请人在海外,则jsv有12个月有效期。jsv只能主申请人去新西兰,不能带家属。原来的case会延期审理,找到工作后继续审核,如果有效期内没找到工作,则case关闭。

There will be greater flexibility for offshore applicants to travel to New Zealand within the 12 month validity of their ‘job search visa’.

people who are not currently considered to be in skilled employment because their job is not in an Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) skill level 1, 2 or 3 occupation will be able to claim points for their job if they meet the relevant remuneration threshold.

 

 

Skilled employment

The key changes for skilled employment points are:

The introduction of minimum remuneration requirements, which complements the use of the ANZSCO to determine whether employment is skilled.Applicants employed in occupations at ANZSCO skill levels 1 to 3 will need to be remunerated for their jobs at or above $23.49 per hour, which equates to a salary of $48,859 per year based on a 40 hour week.
Applicants employed in occupations at ANZSCO skill level 4 and 5, and those applicants in jobs for which there is no corresponding ANZSCO description, will need to be remunerated for their jobs at or above $35.24 per hour which equates to a salary of $73,299 per year based on a 40 hour week.
Bonus points will be available for applicants whose remuneration is at or above $46.98 per hour, which equates to a salary of $97,718 per year based on a 40 hour week.
The remuneration requirements will be updated in November each year, based on New Zealand income data.
The same number of points will be awarded for offers of skilled employment in New Zealand or current skilled employment in New Zealand.

For all occupations, training and experience requirements can also be met by the following:

if the employment is in an occupation included on the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL) and the applicant meets the relevant requirements specified in column three for that occupation, or
the employment is in an occupation that requires New Zealand registration by law to be undertaken and the applicant holds evidence of full or provisional registration in that occupation in New Zealand.

Can my application under the SMC be approved if I do not have skilled employment in New Zealand?
To be approved residence, an applicant needs to have either skilled employment in New Zealand (or an offer of skilled employment), or a Master’s degree or Doctorate gained after two years of study in New Zealand.

If you are assessed as having sufficient points to meet the selection threshold, and you meet health, character and English language requirements, but do not have skilled employment in New Zealand (or a Master’s degree or Doctorate gained after two years of study in New Zealand), we will defer the decision on your application and invite you to apply for a job search visa. This job search visa will allow you to look for skilled employment in New Zealand. The decision on your residence application will be deferred while you look for skilled employment.

How long can I be in New Zealand on the job search visa?
If you meet the requirements of the job search visa policy and are already in New Zealand, you will be granted a job search visa valid for 9 months.

If you meet the requirements of the job search visa policy and you are outside New Zealand you will be granted a job search visa valid for 12 months.

 

When I am granted residence will conditions be imposed on my resident visa?
Conditions will be imposed if you haven’t yet taken up your offer of skilled employment or you haven’t been in your current skilled employment for three months or more at the time we assess your application. One of those conditions will be that you continue to be paid at or above the level of remuneration for which skilled employment  points where awarded to you, during the period for which conditions are imposed. Conditions may be imposed for 3 or 12 months.

 

Does my job need to be included in the List of skilled occupations (Appendix 6 of the INZ Operational Manual)?
No.  Under the new rules, occupations at all Australia and New Zealand (ANZSCO) levels can be assessed as skilled if the relevant remuneration thresholds are met (for jobs at ANZSCO skill levels 1, 2 or 3 at least $23.49 per hour and for jobs at skill level 4 or 5 at least $35.24 per hour).
