Straight to Residency

This almost reminded me of "Stairway to Heaven". This pathway is almost similar as well . New Zealand is a paradise in itself.


This pathway is for those , who have a role on Tier 1 of the Green list (Look at our earlier post). You also need to ,

  • Be working for an Accredited employer or

  • Have a job offer from one as well.

If you are eligible you can apply for this visa now. You can either come to New Zealand on a work visa and apply or apply from overseas.


So what's the Tier 1 of Green list, simply speaking its a list of jobs which will be in high demand , on the basis of qualifications . Most common jobs featuring this would include,


  • Business professionals

  • Construction

  • Engineering

  • Health and Social services

  • ICT, Electronics & Telecommunications

Then one would need to satisfy the criteria which would be required to be met , under each of these "jobs" . For example,

  • If you are a midwife- then you would need to be registered with the Midwifery council

  • If you are ICT, & a "Project Manager" - then your salary must be above $61.69 per hour, or its annual equivalent

  • If you are a Civil Engineer, then you will have to have one of the following,

    • Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Civil Engineering) (NZQF Level 7). OR

    • A diploma at NZQF Level 6, or a higher qualification, with the minimum equivalent of 240 credits, which includes the knowledge requirements of the New Zealand Diploma in Engineering (Civil) (Level 6). OR

    • A Washington Accord or Sydney Accord accredited undergraduate (initial) engineering degree in Civil Engineering (listed - see Note 2). OR

    • A qualification at NZQF Level 7 or higher, with a letter from Engineering New Zealand certifying that the degree and any further learning meet the benchmark requirements towards Chartered Professional Engineer status in New Zealand. OR

    • NZ registration in the field of Civil Engineering as a Chartered Professional Engineer or as an Engineering Technologist by Engineering New Zealand

There are some criteria which allow contractors to apply for this pathway as well.
