I’m working as assistant manager at Bar currently but I’m getting job offers as class 4 truck driver. I hold class 4 licenses but no experience can I apply for essential skill work visa as truck driver? How much minimum pay rate do I need to apply?
Great to hear from you. You are eligible to apply for a work visa but you need to pay attention to the following points:
- The ANZSCO code you use and the required experience and qualification requirements specified
- The area the job offer is in, the efforts the employer has made in hiring and training NZers.
Technically, if you do not have any relevant work experience or equivalent academic qualification, a visa officer can decline a visa application. However, the outcome will be dependent on the individual circumstances of the employer and other factors – e.g. how you acquired your license, what was involved in the process, if your Indian license is genuine, the actual job duties, whether there is an offsider involved etc. We have many applications where we achieved positive outcomes for our clients in a similar situation.
