Special recognition of these occupations as Skilled Occupations:

Immigration New Zealand has made a special change in the operational manual in alignment with the changes being made in the ANZSCO. This means, until the new Version 1.3 is released of ANZSCO, Immigration New Zealand Immigration will recognises these occupations as skilled occupations as an exception.

1. Salary condition remains the same at $25 per hour:

In order for you to benefit from this change, you will need to be paid a minimum salary of $25 per hour.

2. No need of Skills Match Report for Essential Skills work visa:

If you are employed in one of the above mentioned occupations, your employer doesn’t need to provide a skills match report from work & income to be able to support your visa application. They will still need to ensure that there are no suitable NZers available to take up the role.

3. Act now and apply for your new medium skilled visa and submit your EOI:

If you are employed in one of these occupations and meet the minimum salary threshold of $25 per hour, you are now eligible to apply for a work visa under essential skills  for a visa of upto 3 years duration under medium skilled category. If you otherwise meet 160 points threshold, English language, medical and character requirements, then you should act now and submit your EOI.

If you need any help, Carmento team is here to assist you.
