My name is Vikrant. I want to apply for Resident Visa. I am currently working as “CNC Programmer and operator” for Kaiwaka Furniture company. There is approximately 20 people in the company. My current hourly payrate is $25.5 per hour. I have PTE-academic score 59 (equals 6.5 bands IELTS), which is valid till April2020. I want to know if I can apply for residency under ANZSCO-Wood machinist category? or what you think would be the best category to apply in for?
Also, my partnership status is Single, so I don’t have any dependents. Please let me know if you need any further information.
As you know that I have already answered this question to you in your personal one-on-one appointment but I will still answer this for the sake of our other clients.
The answer is Yes. It is important to establish how the role is skilled and how it matches one of the ANZSCO occupations. How the role requires specific technical skills and should be regarded as skilled. You also need to establish with INZ, how you are suitably skilled for the role. You can claim your NZ and overseas qualifications for which you may need NZQA assessment.
