Currently am working in New Zealand as Import Export operator (ANZSCO 591212) in a logistic company. Am trying to claim points for skill migration category. But my previous work experience is 6 years in bank (ANZSCO 5521 BANK WORKERS) is that possible to claim any points since it is in different class?
In short, the answer is Yes. You can claim points for skilled work experience for different occupations. You still need to ensure that you are able to meet the requirements for skilled work experience:
- Were you suitably qualified before the beginning of the claimed work experience?
- Was it gained in a comparable labour market? If not, do you have a current skilled employment in NZ?
- Was the job description and the actual job duties of your claimed work experience in alignment with ANZSCO?
If you wish to discuss your personal circumstances, please feel free to book a one on one meeting with me and we can establish your eligibility and assist you in making a decision and a strategy for your residence application.
